Troops were also more likely than their civilian peers to have a home loan, car loan, and credit card balance.  Military members looking at debt tend to look for ways to pay debt off more quickly to save money over time. When faced with this question, I use an analogy that paying only minimum payments is like digging a hole with a spoon; to make real progress, you want to use a shovel.

A Plan for Success

Written by Super User | April 26, 2012

SSGT Zuniga

I’m Staff Sergeant Robert Zuniga and I have been an active duty Air Force medic for eight years. I plan on staying in long enough so that I can retire at 20 years.
