I'm often refered to as the AFI Queen. Meaning that I'm always nose deep in the regulations of what I can and can't do. This has led me to usually knowing the rules on things especially on how I can maximize military benefits. 

Just a few Photos from my Military Service & a Little more about me

Being able to utilize SpaceA travel has been a huge benefit that I feel so incredibly fortunate to have. With this benefit I have traveled the world with my family on a very small budget.

This in conjunction with other benefits that have come from the military & civilian communities have led to even bigger savings in travel and I'm here to show you how you can do it too. Weather. you're currently serving, Retired or a Veteran there are huge savings in travel you're able to utilize.
