    1. Hi Wanda,
      Are you wanting to connect with families at Fort Sills or Army families in general? Here are some links that will get you started.

      Here is the Facebook page for Fort Sill- many families connect through social media.

      Here is the webpage for Fort Sill’s Family Programs – programs and events for service members and their families.

      1. I took the course on-line for my CEU 1.5. (Predatory Lending Practices & How to Avoid Them). I type in my name and e-mail address which was my military e-mail and the certificate will not appear on this site. I would like to use my personal e-mail [edited for privacy reasons] and hopefully I can received my certificate.

        Thank you,


        1. Thank you for your reply, Donna. We’ll have our MFLN Personal Finance team (fsawebinars@gmail.com) get back to you about your certificate.
