Testimonial

  • "This class gave me an opportunity to teach my soldiers and NCOs about how to put their money to work for them. It also gave my NCOs a chance to show their soldiers that they cared by creating personalized plans with their soldiers. In the end about half of my Platoon that didn't already have some kind of investment or TSP account created one leading to a decline in disciplinary issues and a huge boost in Platoon camaraderie. Highly recommend." -1LT, FA, Fort Bragg, NC
