Andy Sheep Joins the Military Money Manual Team

See why the AMEX Platinum is my top recommended military credit card.

Thank you for supporting my independent, veteran owned site.

Andy recently reached out to me on Facebook and expressed a desire to help contribute to the mission here at the Military Money Manual. I've run this site as a solo operation for the past 16 months. It's been fun but I haven't been able to produce as much content and write as much as I'd like due to being so busy with my day job.

I think some fresh perspective and new insight into managing your personal finances while serving in the military is always a good thing. Andy has some good experience with VA loans, the GI Bill, and other military financial topics I haven't yet addressed on this site.

He also comes from the Navy, which brings a whole new branch onto the MMM site. He's been around the world in some pretty interesting places.

Here's Andy's bio as a way of introduction. Welcome aboard! -Spencer

Hi, my name is Andy Sheep, and I’m an LT in the US Navy. I’m a doctor, currently doing an outservice residency in Emergency Medicine at UPenn in Philadelphia.

I joined the Navy during medical school at Temple Med School, also in Philly, going through the HPSP program. I did an internship at the National Naval Medical Center (currently Walter Reed) in Bethesda, then did 6 months of training in Undersea Medical Officer (UMO) Candidate school at Groton, CT and Panama City, FL. I did two UMO utilization tours, two years in Bahrain, two in Guam, before coming back to Killadelphia…sorry, Philadelphia :)

Planning to start my own website, I saw that Spencer had already created one very similar to what I had envisioned; I asked him if I could join him instead of start from scratch, and he was cool with that.

I joined this website because I’ve seen a lot of lives, especially amongst sailors in my commands, get ruined because of poor financial education and choices, and I wanted to help to remedy that.

I firmly believe that every military member can live comfortably and well on a military salary, if they make the right choices. Spencer and I have lots of experience and tricks to help you get there.

  3. Doug, thanks, it’s good to be here. Your website is a big inspiration, and I hope the new owner, Curtez, can keep the good stuff coming. I like what Spencer’s got going, and hopefully I can add something to his already great website.

  4. Welcome, Andy, and as a retired submariner I’d like to add: “Ouch!” Just kidding.

    I like the idea of several bloggers sharing the audience (and the workload) on one blog. I’m looking forward to your posts!
