A Salute to Smart Investing provides active military members with the knowledge and tools they need to achieve financial security, and helps them identify and avoid frauds that specifically target the military.

The "Salute" guide covers investment "basic training," which includes budgeting, saving, and credit; the basics of saving and investing; balancing risk and reward in investing; retirement planning; and recognizing inappropriate investments.
