Our Mission: It is our goal to provide personal financial education, training, counseling, and information and referral to active duty service members and their families. Money is one of the main reasons service members experience stress on the job and it is one of the top things couples fight about. We believe that by helping individuals achieve financial success we can foster confidence in facing their finances and alleviate these stressors. The Personal Financial Management Program offers a variety of services that are free as part of your benefit for serving in the military. These services include; individual financial counseling, assistance in understanding your TSP, monthly workshops, unit classes, and Command Financial Specialist training.
