Does anyone know if it is possible for a USNA class of 2013 appointee to open an account at the Navy Federal Credit Union – (USNA branch) now (before I day 2009)? This would have to be done by mail because we live in NY. The only in-person method would have to be at the USMMA branch, but that is still 40 miles away. If the account were opened at the USMMA branch, would that create an inconvenience once he was permanently in the USNA? This would be convenient to do now because he needs a checking account for ATM access before the end of the month for a Europe trip.
