Being a military brat and having served myself, the Military has been very influential in my life. While growing up I learned the value of Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. I carried that through life and my time in service. It has helped me to constantly work on being a better person and doing the best that I can not only for myself but for everyone I interact with.
During my time enlisted, I often felt it was difficult to get clear information about the benefits that were available to myself and my family. And after being discharged, for medical reasons, I spent a lot of time and effort trying to figure out my veteran benefits, utilize the resources that come from them, and find information centers to help me thru the process. During this process, I learned that I was part of a larger group, a group of under-informed individuals that don't utilize many of the benefits we are entitled to not only in service but after. Thus many benefits go unutilized by service members and their families. Working with AFBN I am able to address this, I am able to work with service members to educate them more about the benefits that are available and to assist them in planning for a secure financial future.
At its core, AFBN’s mission is to help service members and their families, this is and was exactly what I was looking for when I joined AFBN. I was excited not only for a new opportunity, but the ability to positively impact the lives of service members and their families personally was very attractive. I have a deep foundation of civic pride and I pride myself in giving back to my military family.
It is never too late to start preparing for success and the future. As a Disabled Vet and being a little older, I fully understand that point. We are here to make the journey into the future as painless as possible. Every journey starts with the first step and AFBN is here to take that journey to success with you.
