Bank of the Brave

Gate City Bank has a long history of supporting military personnel and their families with special rates, programs, career opportunities, team member benefits and more. We’re committed to serving those who give their all to serve us – and that will never change.

Our unwavering support of service members and their loved ones has led to us being recognized with the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Patriot Award. We go above and beyond for military team members, providing innovative benefits such as:

  • Continued full pay during active duty and training

  • Uninterrupted benefits such as health, disability and life insurance during active duty or training

  • Two weeks of transition and relaxation time upon returning home

“Gate City Bank has been so supportive of my efforts to defend this great country. By standing behind team members who serve, the bank reduces stress for them and their families.”

“I’ve never worked for another company that takes care of its military team members the way Gate City does. This organization has been beyond a blessing in paid military leave, time off to get rest upon returning from active duty and overall support. I’m proud to serve my country, and I’m thankful to have Gate City as my employer.”

The support we provide for veterans and their families lives in the hearts of our team members and the passion of the bank’s commitment. It also originates from our Military Support Committee, which has helped create countless initiatives that have resulted in amazing partnerships and giveback efforts for veterans throughout North Dakota, central Minnesota and beyond.
