Next Week is Military Saves Week

What is Military Saves Week?  A part of America Saves week, it is a campaign to encourage financial awareness amongst service members.  There is a "Saver Pledge" and a competition to see which branch of the service can get the most members to pledge to save.

Individual installations and organizations around the country are having special events to celebrate Military Saves Week.  For example, the Southern California Fleet & Family service centers are having a variety of events, including Financial Challenge Events at several location.  Little Rock Air Force Base is having an event each day of the week.  (And they sound like fun!)  MCCS Barstow is offering free stuff to people who take the pledge.  SUBASE Groton, Connecticut has a great schedule of events that include a lot of prizes and participation for the children.  Fort Jackson's ACS is running two days of events.

Check with your local installation to see what type of events are planned for Military Saves Week.
