U.S. Marine in Afghanistan touts CU difference
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (11/4/10)--A U.S. Marine serving in Afghanistan recently sent a flag and certificate to the Deseret First CU branch in South Jordan, Utah, to thank credit union staff for their help. Spc. J.D. Nelson, 21, a Utah Marine stationed in Afghanistan, also sent a letter thanking branch employees for their “support and kindness” in helping him obtain an auto loan, according to a release from Deseret First, which is based in Salt Lake City. The certificate attests that the flag was flown over Afghanistan aboard a Marine Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron Two EA-6B Prowler in honor of Desert First's South Jordan Branch. Nelson’s letter noted that after receiving the loan, he moved all his accounts to Deseret First. That move has proved to be “the best decision for my money and me,” Nelson wrote, because the credit union is “always there when I need you.” Nelson’s mother delivered the flag to the branch.
