FORT WORTH, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–First Command Financial Services, Inc. announced today that it has been
named a 2019 Best for Vets Employer by Military Times.

The annual rankings are the result of a meticulous, months-long process.
Military Times invites companies to fill out its survey, tests to ensure
the accuracy of responses and carefully evaluates survey data. The
standards are objective, rigorous, and editorially independent. As a
result, transitioning service members recognize them as a trusted source
of veteran job rankings and have come to rely on Best for Vets Employers
to aid their transition to civilian life.

“We are honored to be recognized by Military Times for our commitment to recruit
veterans and military spouses,” said Scott Spiker, chairman/CEO of First
Command. “Our military-focused hiring strategy dates to the company’s
founding more than 60 years ago. We’re always looking for
self-motivated, mission-driven people who have lived the military
lifestyle. Veterans and military spouses naturally understand the short-
and long-term financial needs of those who serve. They are uniquely
suited to provide face-to-face financial coaching to our clients in
their pursuit of financial security.”

First Command boasts roughly 500 financial advisors, with four out of
five coming from the ranks of veterans and military spouses. They serve
in more than 170 offices worldwide. Most of these offices are located
near major military installations.

“The companies on the Military Times Best for Vets list earned their
rankings through determined efforts to recruit and support service
members, veterans and military families,” said George Altman, the
Military Times editor in charge of the rankings. “These efforts deserve
recognition from the country and should get the attention of veterans
looking for a new career.”
