My husband is in the Army and we have a lot of credit card debt. It is a struggle to pay them each month along with other bills. Any suggestions on the best way to deal with our credit card debt so we have some financial freedom?
Thank you for your time!

Dear Concerned Army Wife,
Thank you for writing to Army Wife Network. Credit card debt can be difficult to get out from under. Thankfully, there are some resources available to Army families that may help.
First of all, I would highly recommend taking the Dave Ramsey Financial University workshop designed specifically for military families. Have your husband check with his unit chaplain or the Religious Support Office, who may be able to tell him when and where the next workshop will take place.
Another resource is Army Community Services. They offer financial readiness assistance. Information about all the benefits available to soldiers can be found by following this link, http://goo.gl/5GkHlM.
Additionally, Military One Source, http://www.militaryonesource.mil/financial-and-legal/home-and-family-finances, has some great information about getting out of credit card debt.
Hope you find this information helpful. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.
