Be a Military Saver
"I've got plenty of savings, and I never worry about money."
Help our military and civilian families and our nation say that and mean it. Join the Military Saves campaign today, and invite your entire organization to become a saving community. Visit www.militarysaves.org.
If you're part of a military organization, including the Corps of Engineers, ask your commander to commit to the campaign. It's part of the DoD Financial Readiness Campaign, and is an official program authorized by the Undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corp, National Guard, and Coast Guard are all partners in the campaign.
It's as simple as promoting saving — for emergencies, for purchases, for debt reduction, for home ownership, for education, for retirement — to the men and women in your organization, and to their families. Your credit union and banks may be able to assist you by offering incentives and support for special events.
If you're a USACE contractor, support the campaign within the military organizations you're connected to, and bring the campaign to your company. Military Saves is part of the America Saves campaign, and we are committed to helping all organizations encourage saving among their employees, members and customers. Your human resources, marketing, and other executive staff will be interested in the simple system we suggest for campaign participation, and in the customizable resources available for your campaign partnership. Go to www.militarysaves.org today, and click on the "Resources" tab.
If you have questions or want individual consultation, call or email email@example.com. Welcome to the campaign for a financially free America!

The Department of Defense (DoD) is now paying for an Internet service called Sittercity, which helps military families find in-home child care, nannies, tutors, elder care providers, pet sitters and other services in their local communities. Active-duty Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps members and their families, as well as National Guard and Reserve members, can receive a free membership to the service, which usually costs an average of $120 a year. Retirees are not eligible.
