Serving the military community for more than 100 years, Bank of America has once again renewed its ongoing support of USS Midway Museum’s educational programs and services for the San Diego community, as well as the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. 

Most recently, their support helped the museum spotlight the 50th anniversary of women in naval aviation with banners on Navy Pier.  Bank of America’s partnership also supports Midway’s Legacy Week, held annually during Memorial Day weekend, as well as the museum’s “No Child Left Ashore” STEM education scholarship fund through its Lieutenant-level sponsorship of the Midway American Patriot Award Gala.

“Our longtime partnership with the USS Midway Museum is an extension of the bank’s more than 100 years of serving veterans and active-duty military members, and 80 years of financing San Diego’s defense and aerospace industries,” said Rick Bregman, president of Bank of America San Diego. “San Diego is uniquely prosperous due in large part to its military presence and history. The Midway brings this rich history to life for the community.” 

Bank of America also supports the military community through hiring more than 17,000 service members nationwide in less than ten years. Today, 15 percent of all Bank of America’s newly hired employees in North America are military veterans. The company also provides world class benefits tailored to support the evolving needs of those on active duty, reservists, and military spouse employees – benefits that help Bank of America continuously rank as a top employer for veterans. 

To help veterans transitioning from military to civilian life, Bank of America funds a variety of nonprofit veteran-support organizations, and provides free financial education and resources that are tailored to the unique needs of active-duty service members and veterans. Bank of America has also donated more than 2,600 homes to veterans across the country since 2012.
