What does it mean to serve?

it's time.

What does it mean to serve? As a credit union, it’s something we work very hard at doing well each and every day. But at the time of this writing with Memorial Day nearing, this is one blog that definitely shouldn’t be about us.

It’s the right time to think about and honor those who have served, and continue to serve, us. It’s time to think about the nearly 275,000 calls our emergency fire/EMS and law enforcement professionals in New Mexico responded to in the past year. It’s time to think about the thousands among us who volunteer to help provide these services each year – often thanklessly.

To think about the nearly 170,000 veterans in New Mexico who have served our country – some in the darkest of times reaching back to World War II.

And it’s time to think about and give thanks to the over half-million across U.S. history whose sacrifice redefined service itself because they never found their way home.

It’s time – for at least a few moments – to set-aside political debate, our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram accounts and mobile devices to say two things…

…you are remembered, and, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.
