Kiplinger Focuses on The Military

Wow, we military folks are hot commodities lately.  I've been hearing radio clips, reading magazine articles, and finding more and more websites focusing on personal finance for the military.  I think all this attention is great:  the more we can learn, the better we can be.

Today I want to point out Kiplinger's Personal Finance Guide for Military FamiliesKiplinger is a well-respected personal finance magazine and website and their professional expertise is obvious in this great site.  The military homepage includes videos, worksheets, articles and other resources all specific to unique military situations.  I love this page!

    Simplicity rules. Unfortunately for a majority of junior enlisted and officers more information is not necessarily better. The easier something is the more likely, in my experience, that person will be to follow through. For example, I with that more young Soldiers would enroll in the very easy TSP because, odds are, most will not stay in the military to get a retirement check from the military and they will have wasted the best years of their life (their youth) failing to invest in their long-term financial stability. The more information that someone receives earlier in their careers must be in a manner that is easily “digestible” and actionable. I see way too many junior enlisted Soldiers driving around in BMWs–spending their large reenlistment bonuses on the here and now rather than saving for their retirements. Simple information is the key!
