My family needed assistance with transitioning from the military due to a standard "hold pay" audit all service members go through as they leave the service. I also had to use my savings due to a death in my family. I called USAA (who I've banked with for years) just to hear "how can we assist you" ...
In honor of the NCAA® Championship game tonight, I wanted to share three ways to help make sure your week is a win: Sync your family calendars: Level set the activities and events of the week and have a plan to be on time to each one!

My spring breaks are a little different pace with two toddlers, but we still enjoy the week off preschool. Don’t have plans? Check out one of the Blue Star Museums or a National Pa...
