Most of the 2.5 million men and women who were deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan received little education in personal finance during their service. Now these veterans are making the transition to civilian life with little knowledge of how to manage their money. In The Veteran’s Money Book, Army veteran Mechel Glass tells how she came home from war 20 years ago and took control of her financial life…and how post-9/11 veterans can, too.

Veterans making the transition to civilian life will learn how:

  • To build a personal financial action plan that meets their individual needs.
  • To understand credit and insurance, avoid scams, and develop lifelong habits to stick to a budget.
  • Other veterans are paying down debt and developing long-term plans to save and build wealth.

    Glass served her country honorably as a U.S. Army intelligence analyst in Turkey during the Persian Gulf War in the early 1990s. Now she speaks regularly with service members and veterans at military bases, VA hospitals, and elsewhere, providing them with guidance and counseling on a variety of financial matters.
