Pioneer Services' Military Spouse Finance Guide teaches money management

Proceeds to benefit the Association of the United States Army's Family Programs

Financial problems are a serious concern for military leadership because money troubles at home can affect a service member's performance in the field. As a way to help military families take control of their money and provide a stable financial environment at home, Pioneer Services has published a new book: Military Spouse Finance Guide: Financial Advice for the Homefront.

The Military Spouse Finance Guide covers a wide range of topics, provides real-world examples, and is full of easy-to-follow financial tips. The book includes forewords by Sylvia Kidd, director, Family Programs, Association of the United States Army (AUSA), and U.S. Army Command Sergeant Major Roger Stradley, (Ret), founder of USA Cares, Inc.

"We wanted to recognize Military Spouse Appreciation Day on May 9 in a special way. This book is part of that effort," said Karen Von Der Bruegge, chief marketing officer for Pioneer Services. "Military spouses are the unsung heroes, taking care of the family and the finances during their husbands' or wives' deployment. We wanted to provide them with a comprehensive guide that covers a variety of financial topics, as well as act as a resource for every military family. We think it's a great way to show our appreciation for all of the families that have sacrificed so much for our country."

All proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit a military non-profit organization: the Association of the United States Army's (AUSA) Family Programs. Pioneer Services joined forces with AUSA because of a shared commitment to improving the quality of life for military families.
