Woodbridge, VA, September 20, 2013 - In early September, Belvoir Federal Credit Union arranged with the United States Army Element South (USAE-S) Command to host a financial class for senior enlisted soldiers serving Fort Belvoir, VA. There were approximately 150 soldiers in attendance.
The financial class was led by Belvoir Federal’s Financial Coach, Kelli Jo Anthon AFC®, CHC®. Kelli covered five topics throughout her presentation, including Money Management, Building and Maintaining Credit, Avoiding Predatory Lenders, and Planning for the Future, and Financial Mentoring.
“It was wonderful to see so many in attendance at the Steps to Success Seminar for Enlisted Soldiers. Financial readiness helps soldiers focus on mission readiness and Belvoir Federal stands ready to support our soldiers,” stated Kelli.
CSM Tom Craig, the USAE-S TRP CMD for Ft. Belvoir, worked with his resources to organize a financial seminar for his soldiers. “I’m required to provide outstanding leadership and mentorship to my fellow NCO’s. Financial management is a forgotten tool that requires a lot of attention and knowledge. Preparation and longevity in soldiers finances assist all leaders and their soldiers with preparing for emergencies, instead of emergencies being a burden to soldiers and their families,” CSM Craig stated.
If you are an agency on Fort Belvoir and are looking to host a financial class for your soldiers, agency, and/or employees, please feel free to contact Belvoir Federal’s Installation Liaison and Membership Development Officer, Sharon Leake at firstname.lastname@example.org.
