His care and personality made it easy to approach him…

    John has been our First Command Financial Advisor for 5+ years. At the onset, we were concerned that he would be replacing Haazim Rasheed who became not only our advisor, but a close personal friend to me and my wife Cinda.

 It’s not often at first glance and contact that you feel a sense of calm when you meet someone, but John did that for us!

    John not only picked up responsibilities as our advisor, but he exceeded our expectations.  His care and personality made it easy to approach him on not only financial topics, but many others of a more personal nature.

    John was always prepared with all necessary documents for financial discussions, all meetings were handled professionally, he put us at ease knowing our financial portfolios were being handled with our future in mind.

    We are moving on to South Carolina in the following month.  I have discussed this with John at our last meeting and we feel comfortable that he will be passing the hat to a new advisor in that area.  It is our hope that our new advisor is not only as professional, but also as personable as John!

    On behalf of my wife and I, John please receive our ‘heartfelt thanks’ for all you’ve done for us … Good luck and Godspeed!
