www.militaryonesource.com

They have virtually unlimited resources to help you with anything you can think of. Active, reserve/guard service members in any branch of the military and their families can all go here and talk to people 24/7 in any country we are deployed in (actual true blue americans, not outsourced to somewhere else). Their staff will literally help you in anyway possible to get answers to questions you have about almost any aspect about military life. Education, deployments, finance, family readiness, i'm lost of Ft. Hood, they can help you out. They even offer deployment packets and video's for small children with the cast of sesame street for free. A great resource.

and don't forget when you get deployed, the interest rates on your credit cards drop to either 6 or 7% by law!!! all you need is to send your orders to your credit company, great for getting out from behind the proverbial 8 ball!!

Thanks for the info Jonny. This credit rate is called the Soldiers and Sailors Relief Act and applies to any deployed military member for the duration of their deployment. I'll try to find a copy of the form you send the creditors and post it here later.

Here is a little bit of info on the Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act.
Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act Provides Umbrella of Protection

"If you're a reserve component service member called to active duty, you're protected by a law that can save you some legal problems and possibly some money as well.
Under the provisions of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act of 1940, you may qualify for any or all of the following:

Reduced interest rate on mortgage payments.
Reduced interest rate on credit card debt.
Protection from eviction if your rent is $1,200 or less.
Delay of all civil court actions, such as bankruptcy, foreclosure or divorce proceedings."

Here is a handy guide for the Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act.
http://www.louisvillelaw.com/federal...0_sscra_db.pdf

You must notify the lender and provided them with a copy of your orders to active duty.
Here is a sample letter that you would need to send to everyone to get the reduction in rates.

Sample Letter to Creditor

Reduction of Interest Rate



[return address of service member]



[Date]



CERTIFIED MAIL -- RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED

[CREDITOR ADDRESS]



Dear [Sir or Madam]:



I am currently obligated to your company for a loan bearing an interest rate of [%]. This obligation was entered into on [DATE], at a time when I was not on active military duty.



I have now entered [or been notified that I will enter] the active military service of the nation in the U.S. [SERVICE] on [DATE]. A copy of my orders is enclosed. This entry into active military service has materially affected my ability to meet this obligation. Under these circumstances, federal law prescribes the maximum interest rate which I may be charged on this obligation.



The Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act (50 U.S.C. App. ' 526) prescribes a ceiling of 6% annual interest on any obligation under the circumstances described above. This interest rate must be maintained for the entire period that I am on active duty. The percentage cap includes all interest, service charges, renewal charges, and fees. The rate is applied to the outstanding balance of the obligation as of the date of entry onto active duty mentioned above. Any interest charge above this statutory ceiling must be forgiven, not accrued. The monthly payment on the obligation must be re-computed to reflect amortization at the 6% per annum rate of interest.



Please ensure that your records reflect this statutory ceiling and that any charges in excess of a 6% annual rate are withdrawn. You should also be aware that federal law (50 U.S.C. App. ' 531) circumscribes the manner in which you may enforce certain rights under the contract, including any right to repossession of property.



I thank you in advance for your attention to this matter. Should there be any questions, please feel free to contact me at the address above.



Sincerely,





[Service member's name, rank and branch of service]

"Information sheet prepared by Lt Col Paul E. Conrad, USAR ([email protected]) and Col John S. Odom, Jr., USAFR ([email protected] or [email protected])."

You may not need the letter, all I had to do was fax a copy of my orders to them and they did the rest. Best thing to do is call them.

Didn't see this one, but it might be there. If you need a copy of your military record.

National Archives and Records Administration

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is the nation's record keeper. Of all documents and materials created in the course of business conducted by the United States Federal government, only 1%-3% are so important for legal or historical reasons that they are kept by us forever.

Those valuable records are preserved and are available to you, whether you want to see if they contain clues about your family’s history, need to prove a veteran’s military service, or are researching an historical topic that interests you.
