For the fifth consecutive year,Andrews Federal Credit Union was a sponsor for the 2017 United States Air Force & Navy Joint Ball held at the Chateau De La Rocq, located in Arquennes, Belgium. The event, held on October 13, 2017, brought together the Air Force and Navy Junior Enlisted, Non-Commissioned Officers, and Officers, to participate in celebrating the different barriers that have been broken and overcome by the military in the past years.
The speaker for the evening, Rear Admiral Fred W. Kacher, spoke about the different barriers that had been broken with just the people sitting in the room that night; some were the first in their family to wear a military rank, go to college, or even live overseas. He said the best advice he could give was, “Never quit, fight hard, and if we do that we will break the most important barriers.”
“I was afforded the privilege this year to help bring this event together by being on the committee for the first time,” said Head Teller Britney Gardner. “It was great to work with the different Airmen and Seamen to create a wonderful night for everyone.”
