What the Heck is Military Saves Week

in Save by Lacey Langford, AFC®

Hey, you know what time it is? It’s time for What the Heck Wednesday! Today I’m breaking down What the Heck is Military Saves Week?

You know how important I think it is to set aside money for your future. In case you don’t, let me tell you that you’re saving money for two people in your working years—yourself and your 80-year-old self. If you aren’t saving money, then you aren’t covering the rent or the quality of life you want at 80 years old.

Military Saves Week is a fun way for the military community to kick off their savings goals. To get information from the source, I talked with the talented Alecia Blair, Director of Military Saves to get all the details about this special week to help military Service members and their families save some money.

Alecia D. Blair, M.S., is an AFC® Candidate and FINRA Foundation Fellow. She has been with the organization since 2014 and in the field of communications for more than 15 years.

As a military spouse to an active-duty Army soldier, Alecia understands the challenges of military life and believes deeply in the mission of Military Saves to help service members and their families save money, reduce debt and build wealth. She joins me today to speak about the Military Saves Campaign and Military Saves Week, Feb. 26-March 3, 2018.

Alecia gives a fun interview with tons of inspiration to take advantage of Military Saves to help you reach your savings goals.
