Through disciplined investing, we have properly prepared for the future.

I want to say thank you to First Command Advisor, Michael Parker, in Louisville, Kentucky. In 1994, Michael invited me and my wife Brenda to attend a First Command investment seminar at Fort Knox. We had just gotten married and were trying to properly manage our money together, so, of course, we were skeptical about whether we needed help. But we decided to attend.

I had been investing prior to that time, but with very little focus or direction. Michael helped us set specific goals that I thought at the time were unattainable. It’s a satisfying feeling knowing that through disciplined investing, we have properly prepared for the future.

So thank you to Michael and his staff for the understanding, financial counseling and countless face-to-face meetings – and all off the birthday cards you've sent to our family over the past 23 years!
