Also joining us USAA Financial Planner J.J. Montanaro. J.J. shares with us the importance of starting early when saving our kids college funds and more.

Additional details on the song “Thank You”:

You can download the song and all proceeds go to wounded troops and their families.

The song has been selected by “A Million Thanks” as their official theme song. As you might recall Shauna Fleming, the founder, was a guest on Navy Wife Radio back in May.

The song was inspired by a soldier who Scott Thomas (co-writer) met at the airport. The soldier was departing for Fallujah after a two week visit with his family in the U.S. After a moving conversation, Scott felt led to reach out in some way. Wanting to do something positive with all the negative news coverage of the war, he and his good friend, Brad Avery, put their thoughts and feelings to music.

“We also hope to invite others to express their thanks verbally and through random acts of kindness to soldiers and their families,” shares Avery.

Although they use the word “soldiers”, “Thank You” could be said for all troops with boots on ground and in support of the GWOT.

Be sure to take a listen and download the song.

From their myspace page: “Scott and I really wanted to write something that would encourage the veterans, troops and their families. We are sooo grateful for their continued sacrifice….”

  1. Another good show, I was able to listen to the archives this morning while folding laundry. I really love how you all talked about just walking up to our service member’s at the airport, grocery store, etc. and their spouses and saying thanks for all they have done/are doing.

    Also I enjoyed listening to J.J. from USAA talking about saving for the kids school and paying off debt and such.

    Marie and Wendy, bravo zulu on having such great shows!
