First Command: Social Media For Military Families
America loves two things: military and social media. The only difference is that social media firms continue to make money while military families continue to struggle financially. In an effort to bridge the gap, First Command Financial Services is launching a new social media program that gives middle-class military families a place to share and explore their unique financial behaviors, attitudes and intentions.
Basically, the program will use Twitter, Facebook and other social media tools to engage active-duty personnel in timely conversations about the ways they approach spending, savings and debt. The goal is to create an environment where middle-income military families can ask questions and share best practices with one another as well as members of First Command.
The hope is to create a uniformed place to offer assistance and information to any and all active military personal. It is a tragedy when someone puts their live on the line for their government and believes, only to find that the world they new is a mere shade of what they remember. Oh wait, that is just Travis Bickle...
