Through her diligent efforts, our family feels better prepared for the future…

This testimonial is for the leadership of Avery Schaefer at First Command Financial Services. Avery served as our financial planner for over a year while she was in Vilseck Germany.

My wife, Rikki, and I first met Avery in the spring of 2021 at a base function for U.S. Army Garrison – Stuttgart. What drew us to her table was simple, First Command. We have accounts through First Command and were unaware they had representatives overseas. She took our contact information and said she would reach out to us soon.

Shortly after the event we received an email from Avery asking for a meeting at a time that was convenient for us. In our first Zoom call with Avery, we were immediately aware of her friendly and courteous personality. Over the next several months of working with Avery, she showed her enthusiasm for assisting clients.

Avery was thorough and meticulous in the data that she gathered. She was always willing to take time out of her evening to consult with us and liaise for us with other representatives back in the States. Avery fulfilled her promise to ensure we did not have a gap in coverage with First Command by putting us in touch with Jessica Wolford as she was rotating back to the States, which was greatly appreciated.

Through her diligent efforts, our family feels better prepared for the future, and able to remain in contact with other First Command financial planners. We appreciate all Avery’s efforts and dedication to helping us pursue our goals.

– Rikki and Anthony Ramsey
