Supporting Our Troops and Honoring Local Veterans

Between September 11th and Veterans Day, we at F&M are working locally and nationally with initiatives to honor our brave service members, increase awareness of the challenges they face, and raise money to support their transition home.

Between September 11th and Veterans Day, we at F&M are working with initiatives, both locally and nationally, to honor our brave service members, increase awareness of the challenges they face, and raise money to support their transitions home.

If you would like to join us in saying thank you, we invite you to:


Honor local service members by emailing us a photo of your veteran in his or her “boots” along with a brief description, and the branch you frequent most. Your photo will appear on a “Thank You” board in your nearby branch.

Increase awareness of the challenges soldiers face and visit the Boot Campaign‘s website. Learn more about the organization’s mission and how they help our troops and their families with job and housing assistance, grief and family support, and wellness initiatives. Each Friday, F&M employees are wearing jeans and our “boots” in exchange for contributing to the Boot Campaign. We hope you don’t mind our casual clothing between now and Veterans Day, it is for a good cause!


Raise funds. Sign up for a day of fun and fellowship at F&M Bank’s Veterans Day Clay Shoot at the Flying Rabbit. Veterans with a military ID receive 20% off registration. Proceeds will be donated to Boot Campaign — a national nonprofit organization dedicated to cultivating awareness, promoting patriotism, and providing assistance to military personnel, past and present, and their families. If you would like to donate directly to the Boot Campaign, our CrowdRise page is the place to do so!
