According to NFCU, they have had members from the Coast Guard Academy for years when they were under the Department of Defense umbrella but now they have

extended everyone in the Coast Guard and their families.

Hey FOEPLAY, Do the basic training for the Coast Guard isn't the easiest for sure. Being a NAVY Vet and having friends in the Coast Guard I'd say they were pretty similar. The hardest Basic Training would be the Marines of course. Heard lots of stories form my Dad who was a marine officer in World War II. Really tough physically. The Army boot camp isn't as hard as the Marines but still harder that the Navy & Coast Guard. A lot of field work. In the Navy we never had to stay outside overnight, LOL, unlike the Army & Marines.

 

IMO I would say the easiest basic training would be the Air Force, by far. Not ragging on the AF at all, have a brother and nephews that are in the AF. Plus it's the HARDEST to join too. They have higher standards than the rest of the branches. But they're basic training isn't as hard physically than the rest.

 

 

Happy to hear that NAVY accepts Coast Guard members now. They risk their life daily like the rest of the soldiers, sailors, flyers out there.

Was a lot of physical activity in CG boot camp. A great deal of training and education as well. I remember it being a lot about the "team". Gosh, I have some memories from boot camp... First week there didn't seem too bad. Then we met our company commander! Hell broke loose following.

Good to see they let the "puddle Pirates" into the club.

 

I don't believe the CG was ever under the Department of Defense umbrella. Before Homeland security they used to belong to the Department of Transportation.

 

Personally I think a military credit union should allow all services and all veterans, especially if they will allow someone who hasn't served to join because they are related to someone that retired? Makes no sense.

Agreed Steve. While I'm not a "veteran", I served my four years Navy and I can't get in. When I was serving, I remember many CO's, etc. imploring us younger guys to join NFCU. Being young and dumb, I didn't. Now I'm on the outside looking in. Oh well.

Seriously though, I attended a family function for new recruits.

 

Navy Federal was there in force to drum up new recruits too. :D

      Looking to help a friend refinance a high balance mortgage at $550K 80% LTV in a county that goes up to $625K. Time horizon is about ten years before property is sold. May need non-occupying owner to sign the note also to get DTI ratios acceptable. Current note is presently in the non-occupying owner's name (brother of home occupant).
       
      I'm looking at PenFed and NFCU so far.
       
      PenFed offers a 5/5 at 2.875% and no origination fees with a 2% cap on adjustment and 43% DTI only needing a 680+ FICO score, however, all borrowers must reside in the house.
       
      I don't know as much about the NFCU rates, so far it appears they offer a 5/5 at 2.5% and 0.25% origination fee but the rate varies with your FICO score, still getting more info on this one.
       
      Other Credit Unions to consider? What about USAA, how good are their mortgage rates?

      Hello all,
       
      I was approved in January for Navy's Cash Rewards card.
      At that time, their website advertised a rebate.
      The rebate involved spending a certain amount within 90 days, and receiving a rebate of $200.
      I called Navy this afternoon to be sure I qualify to receive this rebate.
      The representative says that my card does not have on record a five digit code that I would have had to give them when I opened the card, to take advantage of the rebate.
       
      I know there are a lot of NFCUers out there -- anyone taking advantage of this rebate and if so, can anyone lend a hand with the five digit code?
       
      Thank you!

      Does anyone have any "outside of the box" ways to attain membership at NFCU as I am to become a member as no one in my immediate family has served in the armed forces?
       
      P.S. - I apologize for the typo in the subject line(I must have been typing to fast).

      Trying to build DW's credit file, she able to join this weekend based on my membership. I've been a member for about 5 years. Currently, her credit report is thin.
       
      The pulled Equifax and TU for membership, then TU the next business day for CC approval. (all entered in the credit pulls database)
       
      She was given a $10K Flagship Rewards card.
       
      Her FICO scores:
       
      Exp : 789
      TU : 798
      Eq : 806
       
      I know it's not a "great" limit for Navy, but once her Amex $28K limit posts to the CRA's, you can bet we'll be getting out the "prybar".
