I'm Scott R. Tucker, a former Army Officer, a West Point grad, author of four books, and a podcast host. I'm also a veteran frustrated at the lazy financial education and career limitations imposed on our community. My new mission is to teach career military, retiring veterans, and veteran business owners the truth about the financial services industry and what you can do to get out from under the costly "financial expert" trap. I teach servicemembers and veterans how to create the financial flexibility and control that is REQUIRED to build wealth in the modern economy.
When I left the Army in 2008 and became a financial planner, I began an eye-opening journey that led to the discovery that traditional financial advice (even from fiduciaries) is designed to benefit the money managers on Wall Street, not you. 99% of financial advisors have no idea they're blindly leading their clients into mediocrity. If we've learned anything in the post 9/11 era, it’s that veterans want a sense of purpose, and trading time for money to hopefully save enough for retirement doesn't cut it.
That's why I created US VetWealth in 2018. Our mission is to impact 10,000 military families and veterans through modern financial education that fits today's times (think about it, most financial advice is still based on how the stock market worked before the internet age!!!).
We offer access to safe investment strategies and the confidence to meet your life goals as they evolve, rather than locking yourself into a 40+ year plan with zero guarantees. We help you create a WAR CHEST for your wealth, to give you financial stability and flexibility for whatever post-military goals are meaningful to you and your family.
