GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — USAG Bavaria launches its DOD-wide Military Saves campaign in February.  Throughout the week of Feb. 27 to March 4, ACS’s Financial Readiness Program offers classes and other resources to encourage saving.

 

Publicly take the Military Saves Pledge during Military Saves Week and vow to improve your personal finances. Take action and join the community in solidifying a commitment to set financial goals and building wealth.

 

The Military Saves Pledge states, “I will help myself by saving money, reducing debt, and building wealth over time. I will help my family and my country by encouraging other Americans to build wealth, not debt.”  

 

Credit reports and credit scores play a vital role in a lot of life choices, from renting an apartment to applying for a home loan and buying your first car, your credit can either help you or cost you. With every pledge submitted, patrons will receive an email with instructions on how to get a free credit score. Take advantage of this resource to review your score and learn ways to improve it for the future.

 

Special classes will be offered throughout Military Saves Week in both Grafenwoehr and Vilseck. Information tables will be set up at the Tower and Rose Barracks Main Exchange lobbies,as well as the Camp Aachen Express from Feb. 27 to March 4. For more information about the campaign, visit militarysaves.org. For additional questions, visit the Tower Barracks ACS at Bldg. 244 Rm. 108, or call DSN 475-8371, CIV 09641-83-8371.
