WASHINGTON-Following remarks from NCUA Chairman JoAnn Johnson and educational sessions at its Defense Issues 2006 Conference, the Defense Credit Union Council ended its day with a solemn ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Four members from the DCUC Board participated in a Feb. 25 wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider. “Presenting a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns is a tribute of the highest magnitude, and on behalf of DCUC,” DCUC Chairman Ralph Story, chairman of VyStar CU, commented, “I would like to thank the United States Army’s Old Guard and Arlington Cemetery for giving us this wonderful opportunity and allowing us this great honor.” On March 4, 1921 Congress approved the burial of an unidentified American soldier from World War I. This became known as The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier but has never been officially named. One unidentified American soldier from each of the following wars has been buried at the Tomb. DCUC represents approximately 260 credit unions serving on military bases worldwide with fields of membership made up, in whole or in part, of military and civilian personnel of the U.S. Department of Defense. Also at the conference, DCUC awarded the 2005 George E. Myers Scholarships to Tripler Federal Credit Union Vice President Sheri Higa and Warren Federal Credit Union Warren Air Force Base Branch Manager Gaylene Hasert.
