Q:  We do not currently have active duty members of all armed forces in our charter.  How do we add them so we can also include honorably discharged armed forces members?
 
A:  For a single or multiple common bond charter, not already serving a branch of the armed forces, to add active duty members of any armed forces to its field of membership, a request from the branch of the armed forces stating they want to join your credit union would be required along with submitting the appropriate NCUA 4015 Form.  Once a military group has been added, the honorably discharged affinity clause can be added to your field of membership through a housekeeping amendment.
