After 25 years with First Command, we’ve never looked back.

Financial security for my family has always been a primary focus of mine. A dinner invitation and discussion on the time-value of money led to my first investments in 1997, and after 25 years with First Command, we’ve never looked back.

As our goals and needs have changed, our First Command Advisors have helped us establish investment accounts, calculate requirements, build an insurance strategy, make use of banking services through First Command Bank, and most recently, face the unpleasant prospect of long-term disability care. At every step, we’ve had the assistance of an Advisor to discuss options, explain products and help us progress towards our goals.

As we’ve moved across the country, the accessibility of local offices, consistently professional people, and the continuity of Advisor support between locations has made relocation seamless. We’ve had seven First Command Advisors. Each has been well-versed and well-prepared, and each has been an excellent partner. Our current advisor, Zach Meitner in El Paso, Texas, is no exception. Our partnership with First Command helps provide peace of mind as I choose what I want to do after the Army, and as I prepare for retirement, gives us the confidence to face a major life transition.
