Military Saves 2015

By Anna Flowers Fleet & Family Support Center

To kick off the 2015 Military Saves Campaign, the Department of Defense has designated Feb. 23 to 28, 2015 as Military Saves Week.  Celebrated annually by military installations around the globe, the overall goal of Military Saves is to increase financial awareness. 

To commemorate the event, Joint Base Charleston leadership signed the 2015 Military Saves Proclamation asking all JB Charleston military members to commit to a goal of financial fitness.  To solidify that commitment, military, civilians, and family members are encouraged to sign a Military Savings Pledge and partake in the scheduled financial awareness events listed (mission permitting):
