Fort Bliss is as much a part of El Paso as our vibrant sunsets or beautiful Franklin Mountains. Extending a warm welcome to troops from around the world is a part of our culture. This is why GECU celebrates Military Appreciation Month every May. We set aside this month to honor the dedication of our troops, our veterans and their families.
SUN CITY SUPPORT
GECU proudly sponsors the 1-43 ADA Battalion at Fort Bliss. Throughout the year, we support them with social events, welcome-home ceremonies and more. GECU’s financial coaches also provide free financial education and one-on-one counseling to our battalion during special seminars to make sure that our service members have the information they need to achieve financial freedom in their active-duty and post-service life.
DOING OUR PART
Representatives from GECU play a vital role in base life, serving with organizations, such as the Association of the United States Army, that help make our troops’ lives more comfortable during their stay at Fort Bliss. Whether it’s a forever home or a temporary duty station, we’re happy to do our part to make sure that our troops know that we appreciate their service and want them to feel at home in the Sun City!
JOIN US AT THE BALLPARK
There is nothing more All-American than a baseball game that honors our military. Join GECU and the El Paso Chihuahuas as we salute the troops for their achievements. At each GECU American Hero Night we honor a different service member and share their story. These games are a great way to get involved and learn more about the men and women who serve our country. Visit epchihuahuas.com to learn more about GECU American Hero Nights and other patriotic GECU-sponsored events throughout the season.
