Pioneer Services honors those who serve this Veteran's Day

Offices provide free movie tickets for service members

As a way to thank the men and women of the Armed Forces for their dedication and service, this Veteran's Day several Pioneer Services offices will be giving away a total of 700 tickets to Flags of Our Fathers, a film USA Today called "perhaps the finest modern film about World War II." The offices in Oceanside, Calif., Fayetteville, N.C., and Norfolk, Va., will be participating in the giveaway.

"We're always looking for new and unique ways to give back to the military communities we serve," said Karen Von Der Bruegge, chief marketing officer for Pioneer Services. "Whether it's sponsoring events, providing numerous scholarships, or even giving them a free night at the movies, we do everything we can to show our appreciation for all that they do for our country."

Each office has custom-tailored the ticket giveaway to its unique market. In Oceanside (which serves Camp Pendleton, Naval Base San Diego, and Miramar Marine Corps Air Station), the first 200 service members to come by the office on Nov. 10 and 11, will receive the tickets. At the Norfolk office, all 286 officers and crew of the USS Winston Churchill will receive tickets. And at Fort Bragg, 200 tickets will be distributed to Soldiers from XVIII Airborne Corps, 82nd Airborne Division, and United States Army Special Operations Command.

In addition, each office will have additional tickets set aside for Family Support Groups, military chaplains, and other groups who help improve the quality of life for service members.

Pioneer Services will also provide coupons for a free credit report review from a Certified Credit Report Reviewer, and for a free Break the Debt Cycle consultation. These financial education offerings are designed to help service members understand their credit report and how to better manage their money.

"Thank you for thinking of our Sailors on this Veteran's Day with the offer of the free movie tickets," said Sheri Clark, president of the USS Winston Churchill's Family Support Group. "More importantly, your organization also thinks of our Sailors on most other days as well. Your ‘Break the Debt Cycle' program is eye opening and the services you provide for saving and investing on a military budget are incredible. I hope more people take advantage of the free training."
