Stanford, a community readiness consultant with the 6th Force Support Squadron. “These stations will be located in specific areas to encourage Team MacDill to take the pledge to build wealth, not debt.” According to the official America Saves website, militarysaves.org, Military Saves Week is held annually during the last week of February and is dedicated to help service members, retirees, their families and civilians, promote good savings behavior and help them take immediate financial action. “Military Saves Week is a great opportunity to help service members and their families set a goal, make a plan and save automatically,” added Stanford. All personnel are encouraged to take advantage of these free services being offered on base. For any additional questions, please contact Mark S.
