GREAT LAKES -- Armed Forces Bank, a full-service military bank with a branch at Naval Station Great Lakes near Waukegan, has been named Distinguished Bank of the Year by the U.S. Department of the Army and Navy.

The Department of the Army recognized Armed Forces Bank at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington, D.C., and the Department of the Navy selected Armed Forces Bank at Naval Station Great Lakes in Lake County.


The award recognizes the on-base financial institutions that provided exceptional service to the community during the preceding calendar year. In particular, Armed Forces Bank was recognized for its leadership in serving military service members and their families with a vast array of banking services. In addition, Armed Forces Bank maintained bank access and met cash requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure that all individuals and businesses could conduct financial services without disruption.

Armed Forces Bank has branches on 17 military installations throughout the United States and has been committed to serving those who serve since 1907.

Armed Forces Bank was formally recognized at the 2021 Association of Military Banks of America annual workshop held virtually late last month.
