LINTHICUM, MD, March 23, 2016— NFM Lending is pleased to launch its NFM Salute initiative by honoring the first NFM Salute, Coulter C. Houchens, Sr., father of current NFM Lending employee, Jeanette Salamon.

“Our entire family is thrilled that my Daddy has been chosen as the first honoree for the NFM Salutes Campaign!” said Salamon. “He exhibits so much honor and pride in having served in WWII, and other than his family, it is his military service that he is proudest of.  He remains to this day a silent hero, never boastful, but always remembering and giving the honor to the ‘boys’ he served with, who lost their lives in WWII, as being the real heroes. Thank you, NFM, for recognizing my Daddy, Coulter Christian Houchens, Sr., a man who served our country proudly.”

Military and veteran causes are important to NFM Lending. For the past eight years, NFM Lending has held a Support Our Troops Drive, collecting items for care packages to send to U.S. troops overseas. In addition to employees and employee family members who are active military or veterans, several members of NFM’s executive team are veterans, including Jason Ponsonby, Director of Sales, who served in the United States Air Force for nine years.

“The NFM Salutes program is another great addition to the longstanding commitment to community involvement at NFM Lending,” said Ponsonby. “We help active military members and veterans each day with home ownership, and now will also be able to honor the service, sacrifice, and courage of the NFM Salute recipients. It is an honor to have Coulter Houchens, Sr. as the first recipient of a NFM Salute.  His service during World War II is an incredible example of sacrifice and courage. Thank you to Coulter, and all members of the armed forces, and veterans, for your commitment to service in protecting our country.”

NFM Salutes is an initiative in which one military member or veteran is chosen each month to be honored as the “Salute of the Month.” Salutes will be chosen from nominations on the NFM Salute website, The “Salute of the Month” will be featured on the website with a brief biography and information about his or her service, and NFM Lending will make a $2,500 donation to a military or veteran non-profit in the Salute’s name. Houchens chose the Gary Sinise Foundation to receive this month’s donation.

Selected NFM Salutes may choose from one of several non-profits that support active military members and veterans, including Platoon 22, AnySoldier, Soldier’s Wish, and the Gary Sinise Foundation. NFM looks forward to the opportunity to continue to honor our military and veterans through the NFM Salute initiative.
