Justine was intelligent, polite, and, most importantly, honest.

I searched the internet one day in late March because I had landed a contracting gig that would pick up once I officially separated from the Navy. However, I knew something had to change. I had a lot of debt following poor financial knowledge and a divorce. The first decision I made for myself was to get out of the Navy, and I was terrified. I showed up, and I was not surprised to know that everything was in the red. In my current state, I was hemorrhaging money. I owed everyone a little something. Justine was intelligent, polite, and, most importantly, honest. She said things were tight, but they weren't unstoppable, and my dreams that always felt unachievable were now pursuable.

She patiently met with me biweekly so I could move my small part-time payments into my debts. We worked on this until I could pay off enough things to get a debt consolidation loan. I felt defeated the first time it came through as denied. I knew she had fought for me. However, Justine didn't give up; she went back into battle because she knew that it was what I needed to turn my life around, to give me a little bit of light in the stressful transition I was entering. With Justine on my side, I got a debt consolidation loan. Her excitement for me was genuine; I felt like we were a team and didn't feel like I was just some client. The experience with her and First Command Bank was terrific. I felt like, for the first time in 10 years of being an adult, I was doing it right.
