LINTHICUM, MD, August 1, 2016— NFM Lending is pleased to honor Sergeant Major (Retired) Gregory W. Heffner as the NFM Salute for August 2016.

SGM (Ret) Gregory W. Heffner served honorably in the Maryland Army National Guard for over 35 years, entering service on January 20, 1974. Heffner worked in numerous key assignments culminating at the National Guard Bureau Policy Division, Arlington, Virginia until his retirement in February 2009. He has received many accolades for his service, including the Legion of Merit, the Meritorious Service Medal, and the Army Commendation Medal.

Heffner remains at the National Guard Bureau as a Department of the Army Civilian, GS 13. He is a lifelong resident of Frederick, MD, and has been married to his wife, Terry Lynn Heffner, for over 41 years. He has two daughters, Hilery Leatherman and Katherine Speilman, and seven grandchildren.

“I nominated my Dad, SGM Greg Heffner, because he is the most patriotic person I know,” said Leatherman.  “He loves our country, served 35 years active duty, and now that he’s retired, he is still working as a civilian for the MDARNG as a policy writer. He has always been someone that others call on for advice, assistance or anything regarding other soldiers.”

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 are 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. Heffner chose Platoon 22 to receive this month’s donation.

Selected NFM Salutes may choose from one of the following four non-profits: Platoon 22, AnySoldier, Soldier’s Wish, and the Gary Sinise Foundation. NFM looks forward to the opportunity to continue to honor military and Veterans through the NFM Salute initiative.
