Also available on YouTube: https://youtu.be/KliO_BipSks

Jen Amos takes a break from hosting on Thursdays to introduce replays of her husband's live show, "Take A Knee" Tuesdays.

US VetWealth Founder and CEO Scott R. Tucker is joined once again by Blue Water Advisors (BWA) CEO Mike Wallace to discuss networking strategies for military retirees seeking employment opportunities. They share tips such as one-on-one conversations, how to be relevant in a desired field, not settling for less, and how to research potential employers or opportunities before making decisions.

Scott and Mike also touch on retirement planning workshops and helping members make informed Survivor Benefit Plan decisions.
