During the past weekend, we remembered the importance of our military service members and their contributions with the somber anniversary of 9/11. At the same time, several members of the RBFCU team were busy providing a living testament to our military heroes who have given their time and health to defend our country.

Marine Cpl. Neil Frustaglio lost both legs in an IED explosion in Iraq. Thanks to the Homes for Our Heroes program, he, his wife and two children were able to move into a fully-accessible, barrier-free home. The new home allows Cpl. Frustaglio to be fully involved in the family's daily routine, from preparing meals to taking out the garbage.

Volunteers from RBFCU worked in conjunction with Operation Homefront to move Cpl. Frustaglio and his family into their new home. According to Operation Homefront's director, Jennifer Cernoch, the family would not have been able to take over their new home without the RBFCU volunteers' help. "This move would have almost been impossible because they didn't have the resources, be it a big truck or anything of that nature and just the manpower to be able to do that," Cernoch said.

We are proud to support our military families and thankful for their dedication to serving our country.
