Welcome to The Military Wallet!

About The Military Wallet:

The Military Wallet is a personal finance and benefits website for military members, veterans, and their families. Our goal is to help the military community better manage money and understand the variety of programs and benefits available to them.

In the news:

The Military Wallet has been featured in Military.com, Stars & Stripes, USAA, Bankrate.com, CNN Money, Forbes, US News & World Report, Fox Business & Fox News, Time Magazine, Yahoo! Finance, and a variety of other websites.

About the editor:

Managing Editor Brittany Crocker is a veteran with over 10 years of military service and equal experience in the civilian journalism industry. Crocker received both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Missouri School of Journalism and was a 2016-2017 White House Press Correspondents Association scholar.

Crocker’s passion for public service has underpinned her career. As a young reporter, she worked to expose organized crime, hate groups and deadly regulatory oversights in the childcare, aviation and tourism industries. Her award-winning columns, narrative features and investigations have spanned multiple coverage areas and influenced life-saving policy changes.

The same passion led her to take the helm at The Military Wallet, where she will continue its mission to provide digestible, researched and credible finance and benefit information to her fellow veterans and service members.

When she’s not deployed, drilling or writing, Crocker volunteers with her local technical rescue squad and as a community gardener.
