We are grateful to have such a professional, competent and kind team supporting us over the years.

I am a retired USAF Chief. Early in my career, my wife and I became clients of First Command and we are so grateful for the continued support we have received. I recently thanked my original First Command Financial Advisor, Hal Roesch, for helping us realize 30 years ago that we could invest in our future without sacrificing our quality of life.

When I lost my job in 2020 as a result of the pandemic, I contacted my current Advisor, Dan Mahoney. Dan and his team reviewed my financial plan and helped me plan for retirement.

My wife and I are truly grateful for people like Hal and Dan for helping us pursue our goals. Feel free to share our story, especially with young people looking to start saving for their future.
