Banking with a mission
A few short years after the end of World War II, a U.S. Navy demonstration team of veteran flying aces formed in Jacksonville to show off the F6F Hellcat fighter planes that had helped win the war. These Blue Angels cemented Jacksonville’s position as a Navy town; today, more than a third of the region’s economy depends on the military.
VyStar Credit Union was founded in 1952 to provide this community of military service members, civil service employees, and their families a safe place to save and borrow money. Since then, VyStar has evolved beyond its original incarnation as Jax Navy Federal Credit Union at NAS Jacksonville. As the second-largest credit union headquartered in Florida and the 13th-largest nationwide, VyStar has expanded its mission to be a force for change in the lives of its members and the communities where they live.
