First Command

Client Stories

Will has exceeded our expectations in the manner of his care of us.

Sandy and I have been with First Command (formerly USPA&IRA) since about 1984 or so.  In that time, with one exception, we’ve been blessed with diligent and personable agents.  Our current agent, Will, has been looking after our interests for less than a year now.  He has exceeded our expectations in the manner of his care of us.  He has a hard act to follow:  When we were living in Virginia, Michael Gilbert was our agent for a long time and when we moved and he retired, we were certain that we would never be that lucky again.  WE WERE WRONG.  Will has tackled all of our retirement, tax, investment, LTC, and other questions quickly and professionally.  If our questions are tricky or complicated, and he is unsure of the answer, he calls the home office to get the answer.  This is one of his best qualities or character traits.  He is honest with us about his knowledge.  

We recently benefited from two First Command-sponsored webinars, that Will invited us to; a LTC planning seminar and a tax planning seminar.  Sandy and I found both seminars relevant to our situation and very informative.  The LTC seminar made us realize that we needed to establish a trust to protect our privacy and the privacy of our heirs.  Will connected us with a known trust attorney, otherwise we would be fishing in the dark.  Thank You, Will!
