LOAN YOU WHAT? CAUSE I’M IN THE MILITARY, MAN PLEASE!!
Someone please tell me why people think that since I am in the military I have all this money. Now that may just be in my life, but I know I have ran into plenty of soldiers that have taken out loans to give their family to keep up the image that they are balling in the military.
I am here to say, I don’t have funds for everyone. It really hurts my heart when I have to counsel soldiers on their finances and find out that they are giving most of their money to family members. For males, they are supporting their wife’s family and then for females they are trying to keep their family in the best of everything and letting their bills fall behind. I always have to tell them, until your family start getting up at zero dark hours in the morning, start getting ate up by bugs in the field and start carrying all that equipment from point “A” to point “B”, your house hold come first. Men say I just want to keep the peace, I say there is no peace when you have no lights and no food.
There are situations where you have to send support to help your family, but at the same time you must take care of you first. If your family or whoever is asking can’t understand that then we might have a problem.
Soldiers have lost their career because they were sending so much money home that they let their own finances get so bad it caused them to get discharged.
I don’t know if there is a flyer out or if someone has a commercial out saying soldiers are rich and if you meet one, milk them dry.
IF YOU ARE A SOLDIER WALKING AROUND LIVING LIKE DONALD TRUMP, GIVE ME A CALL AND TELL ME THE SECRET. LOL
