Alaska USA Federal Credit Union chairman of the board inducted into Hall of Honors

Alaska USA Federal Credit Union chairman of the board inducted into Hall of Honors

 
Anchorage, Alaska – Alaska USA Federal Credit Union’s Chairman of the Board, Bobby Alexander, has been inducted into the Defense Credit Union Council’s (DCUC) Hall of Honors.
 
The Hall of Honors was established in 2000 as a way of acknowledging credit union leaders, volunteers, and staff for their significant contributions throughout the year. Most notably, it recognizes individuals who epitomize the DCUC’s philosophy of “Serving Those Who Serve Our Country.”
 
Alexander has served on the Alaska USA Federal Credit Union board of directors since 1996, and has held the rank of chairman of the board since 2001. In addition to his considerable service to the credit union, he has an extensive service record with the U.S. Army. Alexander’s service to our country includes two tours to Vietnam with the 5th Special Forces Group where he was selected to be the noncommissioned officer in charge of the group’s financial section. During his time in the military, Alexander received numerous awards and commendations, and even after retiring from the U.S. Army, he returned to serve in a civilian capacity. He maintains his military connection through volunteer efforts, including as a board officer with the Association of the U.S. Army AUSA Last Frontier Chapter.
 
“Throughout his 36 years of volunteer board and committee work, Bobby Alexander has worked tirelessly to improve both the credit union industry and the lives of military personnel,” said Geoff Lundfelt, president and CEO, Alaska USA. “He truly represents the DCUC’s philosophy of 'Serving Those Who Serve Our County,’ which is why he has been selected as a 2019 inductee in their Hall of Honors.”
