Memorial Day roundup. . . .

In the interest of highlighting the sacrifices our troops---and their families---are making in Iraq, Afghanistan, and all over the world, I've created a roundup of blogs that discuss finance for servicemen and women, and their families.

Money for Military discusses debt avoidance (a great concept!) as well as finance issues relevant to those serving in the armed forces.

Active Duty Military Money and Matters is on active duty in the armed services, and discusses his own debt repayment and savings goals, as well as investment objectives while on active duty.

Military Finance Network, which is run by Patrick from Cash Money Life (which I read on a regular basis), is a great source of information about not only active duty issues, but also life as a civilian (Patrick isn't on active duty anymore).

The writer of Life Lessons of a Military Wife is a former army brat, and is now married to a military man. She's in the middle of a move to Germany, so may not be posting regularly until August, but keep her in your favorites and check back!

I'm sure there are many more military-finance focused blogs out there (if you have a favorite, send it to me; I might add it here). Whatever your opinion about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the reality is that there are thousands of Americans fighting and dying, and thousands more family members waiting for them here at home.
