My Financial Advisor came to my rescue during a very difficult time in my life.

I want to share the life-changing experience I had with my First Command Financial Advisor, Katherine Holmes. She came to my rescue during a very difficult time in my life. My husband passed away suddenly in June of 2020. After his death, I felt overwhelmed with the responsibility of single-handedly supporting our family and I wasn't sure what steps to take next.

I walked into Katherine’s office broken, exhausted and lost. She recognized my pain and guided me with compassion and kindness as we developed a financial plan for my family’s future. It felt as if my late husband was in the room as we worked together to continue the legacy that he had worked so hard for after 17 years of military service.

Katherine was very knowledgeable and had all of my late husband’s accounts and financial goals on hand. She knew exactly how to allocate the funds from his First Command life insurance policy so that our future would be protected. My family and I are very grateful for Katherine and for the team at First Command for acting as our “financial first responders” during our time of need.
