Client Stories

Our Advisor has been so patient and sympathetic in dealing with our concerns as new retirees.

Dawn and I want to thank our Financial Advisor, Alysse Forde, for her service over the years. As we got older and were planning for retirement, she helped lay the foundation to prepare us to be able to pursue financial security. We are now both newly retired, and she has been so patient and sympathetic dealing with our insecurities and concerns on how to manage our quality of life as retirees. Her professional knowledge is amazing and her ability to explain the details is comforting. We trust Alysse to steer us in the right direction

A wonderful example of her client care is the suggestion she made to Dawn to look into Social Security Disability Insurance. Dawn did her research, filled out the forms, completed the doctor's exams and jumped through all the hoops. She has been accepted and the extra income will really ease our fears. We appreciate Alysse’s guidance.

We are a First Command family. Our son, active duty in the U.S. Army, and his wife are clients and our second son is planning to become a client. We will continue to refer our friends and family to First Command.

We look forward to continuing to work with Alysse in the future!

– Lt. Col. Neil Schoon, USAF (Ret.) & Dawn Schoon
