I went to the NCUA web site to see what I could see about this CU -- I found their financial reports, but I need help reading them. Anyone?
BTW, their charter number is 14785, and they were chartered in 1962.

This might provide a clue: "Patriots Federal Credit Union was founded in 1962 to provide financial services to military personnel of the U.S. government stationed at the Marine Corps Air Station, El Toro, and the Marine Corps (helicopter) Air station in Tustin, California."
