Abstract : The paper deals with the need for personal finance training in the service. Through the media of a survey conducted at the USAWC and CGSC, it was determined that personal finance training was highly desired by respondents, that the median knowledge level of personal finance subjects was very low, and that most of the respondents could improve their personal finance status with realistic personal finance training. Subject areas most frequently selected for a personal finance training program were: Real Estate, Income Tax, Estate Planning, Mutual Funds, Retirement Benefits, Securities, VA Benefits, and Survivor's Benefits.
