Families were given 10 minutes each to record and send greetings to their family members. The deployed could watch the webcast live or access an archived recording. “This is our second year as a host for this program and we’re pleased to say we tripled the number of families participating,” said Tina Wildhaber, AmeriCU CU regional manager. Operation Best Wishes is offered free to military families by America’s credit unions through WesCorp FCU and the Defense Credit Union Council. Operation Best Wishes will visit families in California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, New York, South Dakota, Texas, Washington and Wyoming this year. Rome, N.Y.-based AmeriCU has $654.1 million in assets.
