"Best investment - education.  Each year and a half of salary increase paid for one year of school. Worst investment - Snap-On tools.  Cost is five times what craftsman charges and the Craftsman guarantee is better."

Managing Your Money While Deployed, One Soldier’s Story

Posted on April 10, 2009 at 1:32pm 2 Comments



In January 2005, I left the comfort of my family and home and began a 15 month deployment to Iraq. Although I knew the difficulty and hardships that I would face, I knew it would be an excellent opportunity for my wife and I to get a jump start financially. You would think that being overseas and unable to spend as freely as you can in the States would give every soldier an opportunity to save some serious bucks. Especially with the military… Continue
