Our Advisor went above and beyond to show us that we mattered as First Command clients.

After many months of saving for a used car with the help of budget management, we walked into our Advisor John Gourley’s office excited about the progress we had made. Little did we know we would be more excited after meeting with John. After just an hour of sitting down together, John had devised a plan for us to not only purchase a car that would serve our family for years to come, he also helped us pay off our current car loan through a budgeting plan. We left the office feeling confident about our financial decisions and our decision to work with First Command.

At the dealership, after discussing financing options, we felt pressured to abandon our plan. Frustrated by this experience and realizing how much we value our relationship with John, we asked for his help. He surprised us by visiting the dealership and speaking to the Business Manager and, ultimately, the General Manager on our behalf. They agreed to process our paperwork and complete the deal on our terms. John went above and beyond to show us that we mattered as First Command clients.

We have learned the value of long-term planning, as opposed to our generation’s idea of convenience and instant gratification. We are endlessly thankful for what John and First Command have done for our family, and we are excited to see what the future holds as we continue to work with First Command!
