About the Book    About the Author

When it comes to money, military service members and their families face financial challenges that civilians simply don’t.

While serving on active duty, members of the military are typically asked to move every few years and must learn how to manage money during multiple deployments. And managing the finances means figuring out a way to maintain a balanced budget while communication is limited. Meanwhile, the spouse at home is essentially functioning as a single parent without the necessary skills and tools to make serving as the family’s Chief Financial Officer as easy as possible. That is, until now.

Jean Chatzky, financial editor for NBC's TODAY show, is here to help with Operation Money, a mission-based guide that provides detailed resources to prevent money problems before they happen; gives you the tools to manage through a tough situation if you’re already facing one; and empowers you to figure out how best to plan for your future—either in or out of the military—and then assists you in doing so.

The chapters throughout focus on saving, debt, credit, buying and financing a home, buying and financing a car, paying for college, protecting the ones you love with insurance and an estate plan, dealing with a relocation, managing money through a deployment, handling a furlough, retirement, divorce, and the financial aspects of caregiving. With contributions from Blue Star Families, MSCNN, and other military related organizations,Operation Money is a must-read for those who serve that are looking to take charge of their financial present and future.

Operation Money is published and available free-of-charge thanks to the generous support of Citi. For more information on Citi’s support for military veterans and their families, visit www.citisalutes.com.
