Andrews Federal Credit Union partnered with Operation Best Wishes to sponsor free holiday video messages for service members and their families.

The Operation Best Wishes team set up a mobile webcast unit at the Andrews Federal Credit Union branch on Joint Base Andrews in Camp Springs to record greetings to distant service and family members.

Each recorded message was up to 10 minutes long and included updates and words of encouragement, according to a credit union news release. Participants received a CD containing the video, as well as a link for their loved one to access the archived recording via a secure website.

Its a pleasure to provide such a great service to our members, Patrice York, marketing manager, said in a news release. We understand the desire for families to be together during the holidays and wanted to do our part to bring them as close as possible.

Organized in 2004, Operation Best Wishes has recorded the messages of thousands of military members, families and friends at participating credit unions nationwide.
