LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (PRWEB) March 06, 2020
Armed Forces Insurance is proud to announce that First Command Financial Services is continuing their support of the 2020 Armed Forces Insurance Military Spouse of the Year® Award at the Platinum sponsorship level.
More than one million military spouses support and maintain the homefront while our service members defend this great nation. Founded in 2008, the Armed Forces Insurance Military Spouse of the Year® Award recognizes military spouses’ important contributions and unwavering commitment to the military community and our country. Nominations for the award are made by both the civilian and military community. There are four rounds of advancement, culminating in the announcement of the overall winner in our nation’s capital on May 7th.
“First Command is honored to partner again this year with Armed Forces Insurance, which also serves as the property and casualty insurance provider for our clients,” said First Command President/CEO Mark Steffe. “Military spouses play a key role in family financial readiness. They manage household budgets and savings and navigate the challenges of finding and maintaining meaningful employment because of frequent moves. The AFI Military Spouse of the Year® Award allows us to honor the wives and husbands of service members and support causes that matter to our Nation’s military families.”
As part of its sponsorship activities, First Command will also be recognizing the six branch of service winners with gifts it purchased from several spouse-owned businesses.
The First Command Advisors and support teams in our local offices have been hosting military spouse appreciation events where they recognize nominees and base winners. Several of this year’s nominees included First Command clients and an Advisor.
