This piece isn't new, but it is still great. Jeff Rose at Good Financial Sense wrote about his experiences with money and deployment in Managing Your Money While Deployed, One Soldier's Story. I like how he talks about the before, during and after phases of deployment. Deployment can be a time of paying off bills and getting on track, or it can be a time of creating financial messes to clean up when you get back. Jeff's first hand experience helps focus on making the most of this unique time.
