Yes, a three-legged strategy that has helped me pursue a secure retirement.

I have been a member of First Command since the 70’s when First Command was USPA/IRA. My financial advisor(s) gave me advice on setting up my financial portfolio, including Insurance, Savings and Investments. Yes, a three-legged strategy that has helped me pursue a secure retirement. 

I have two sons-in-law and a brother-in-law with First Command (USPA/IRA). They have been equally impressed with their advisors who have helped them with their investments and their retirements.

My First Command Advisor helped me navigate through my first wife’s death and assisted with the redevelopment of my financial goals with my second wife and her boys.  We have set up a trust for the distribution of our assets as suggested and have named First Command Bank as Trustee.

My wife and I are grateful for the support and guidance we have received throughout these many decades. We trust that First Command and our Financial Advisor will continue to provide us with wisdom and advice on our portfolio during our retirement years.

– Lt. Col. Rod Faubion, USAF (Ret.) and Joette Faubion
