ADC and Navy Federal Credit Union have launched the new Guidepost Awards program to recognize financial and career counselors who serve service members and military families, they announced last week in a press release.

The credit union’s members often talk about the counselors who helped them understand and navigate important financial decisions, said Kelly Costa, regional manager.

“The Guidepost Awards serve as our opportunity to celebrate those meaningful moments and recognize these individuals for their continued dedication to keeping our defense communities strong,” Costa said.

Nominations are currently being accepted for those working in communities near Fort Riley, Kansas, MacDill Air Force Base, Florida, Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Arizona, Naval Base Ventura County, California and Peterson Space Force Base, Colorado.

Local honorees will also be entered to win a national Guidepost Award, presented at the Defense Communities National Summit in March.

“It’s time we recognize the incredible work these folks do for the military community,” ADC President Bob Ross said.
