I applaud Pentagon Federal Credit Union - Visa card. While frustrationg, I put in a wrong digit on my zip, @ gas pump, and that was it - card 'shut down.' At home, they'd called, & left info to call their "Fraud Hotline," with certain incident #. That's what it was. Confirmed, card available agin. All military, fmr. military, GET THAT CARD !! (A lot of benefits - including injury $$$, too).
