Over the years, I’ve had several solid advisors but John Donahoe stands out.

I have been a First Command client for 19 years and it has been one of the best financial decisions I’ve made in my career in the US Air Force. First Command has always taken a proactive approach to my finances so that I can pursue financial independence in retirement. Over the years, I’ve had several solid advisors but John Donahoe stands out. John has been my advisor for the past four years and has been instrumental as I retired from Active Duty and entered civilian life. John personally walked me through expectations ranging from new tax implications (federal and state), Roth and traditional IRA policy changes and contribution factors, 401K strategies, and potential US Government Thrift Savings Plan tactics. Having transitioned this past year, I cannot thank John enough for what he has done for my family. His wisdom and advice are valued, his financial leadership is selfless and I can always count on him for guidance no matter how large or small … he always has time for me and my family.

– Lt. Col. William Jelks, USAF (Ret.)
