A retired Army Captain once stymied a VALoansMN team member when he asked the simple question “when’s your birthday?”. It just so happens the birthday anniversary is March 4th. When the retired Captain heard that he said “the only command date of the calendar”. He promptly turned and walked away leaving our colleague wondering ‘what did he mean by that?’. We’ve always liked the month of March. It’s the month where all of us, no matter our heritage, are likely to find a little Irish in us on St. Patty’s Day. It also signifies the beginning of spring. Lord knows, given the winter we’ve had here in Minnesota we deserve it! Now, back to our team member who had the mysterious exchange with the retired Captain. We thought about it and thought about it. Finally our birthday boy had a chance run in with the Army Captain and straight out ask what he meant when he said “it’s the only command date of the calendar”. No sooner had he asked then it hit him like a ton of bricks. When you say March 4th to a soldier you’re not saying the date on the calendar, you’re giving a command: MARCH FORTH! This gives us here at VALoansMN a whole new meaning to the month of March. To us, it means moving forward, taking care of business and striving to meet the needs of those who come to us to buy that home, to refinance an existing home or just to give them some advice on how best to manage their home finance options. While March is that special month to us we hope it is to you also. March forth, move on, maybe it is time to buy your first home or move your family into that dream home. You’ve already earned a great benefit by serving your country. Now let us help you use that benefit by securing a government guaranteed home loan. Veterans, is it time for you to MARCH FORTH in life?
