For Military Saves Week 2016, the U.S. Army’s goal is to reach 20,000 pledges during the first quarter (Jan. 1-March 31, 2016). To date, the Army is leading the other six Armed Forces branches with nearly 4,000 pledges. In addition, more than 150 Army installations and units have signed up to participate in #MSW2016 at locations around the country and world.
To celebrate what is perhaps the world’s largest financial readiness party, Army installations, units and Financial Readiness Programs are hosting proclamation signings, info tables, financial workshops and fairs.

To celebrate Military Saves Week 2016, Army installations around the world have released commander proclamations in support of the week and are planning financial readiness fairs, seminars and other special events,” says Panesha G. Johnson, M.Ed, Financial Readiness and AER Program Manager, HQ Installation Management Command, G9, Family and MWR Programs. “Military Saves Week is truly a world-wide financial readiness collaboration, and we are proud to be a part of it, encouraging Soldiers and their Families to save.”
