During Military Saves Week, Soldiers and Family Members will be encouraged to take “The Saver Pledge.”  This Pledge is a dedication to reduce debt and build wealth while encouraging others to do the same.  Learning and establishing positive money management habits will contribute to personal financial fitness and overall mission readiness.

The pledge can be taken by going online to www.militarysaves.org or by visiting the ACS Financial Readiness Office located at 5662 Screaming Eagle Boulevard.  Financial Counselors will be on hand to assist, educate, and encourage Soldiers and Family Members to become more financially secure.  Adopt the “Military Saver” lifestyle and ensure you are equipped with relevant tools and resources to become more financially secure.
