A group of veterans and Bank of America are aiming to help service members better prepare for life out of uniform.
The bank has started a free financial education resource online at BetterMoneyHabits.com.
The site is continually evolving, based on opinions from veterans, said Lewis Runnion, a former Army captain and current military affairs public policy director for Bank of America.
Runnion is no stranger to soldiers leaving Fort Bragg for the civilian world.
He's visited the post several times for hiring events and said he can relate to those getting out of the service today.
In the mid-1990s, when Runnion left his uniform behind, he said there wasn't much help for transitioning troops.
"While financial readiness was important, I don't think, frankly, we had the resources we have today," he said.
But even with the nation two decades wiser, Runnion said, there's plenty lacking when it comes to preparing troops for their new lives.
Just wanted to ensure that if Trump becomes POTUS, he does not take credit for what the VA has always done - place Veterans First!!
