We are all vulnerable to debt pitfalls. Regardless if you come from civilian or military families, you are not exempt from financial challenges. What makes this an even bigger challenge is the fact that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to debt. What works for one person might not be suitable for another.
Military families are no stranger to debt problems. And when one of both couples are deployed, these problems are usually left unresolved.
Your service in the military is an honor. The way you help civilians sleep peacefully at night makes you a hero. However, this sacrifice is not enough to keep financial problems from affecting you. No matter how tough you may be, debt can still leave you shaken up and devastated.
What you can do is to make sure that you understand the reasons why you could fall into a debt pit. This will help you identify the cause of the problem so you can create a strategy that will help you avoid the situations that could lead you to debt.
