KILLEEN, Texas -- It's one less thing that our Soldiers have to come back home and worry about, stated Jason Lee, 1st Command consultant.

1st Command Financial Services, Complete Care Car of Killeen team up to provide spouses of 3rd Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, with free oil changes in support of their troops and the brigade's homecoming, here, Nov. 1.

1st Command Financial Services has been supporting and providing services to the men and women of the military in Killeen for the last 30 years. Together with Complete Car Care they showed their appreciation to our Soldiers and their spouses.

"I am retired military and I do support our military," stated Joe Lattanzio, owner of Complete Car Care in Killeen. "Doing this helps me get to know the new members that have arrived to Fort Hood. We try to take care of each other," said Lattanzio.

1st Command and Complete Car Care understand that an oil change is not the first thing on a deployed families mind. It certainly isn't a priority when your Soldier comes home from war, but it was a way to give back as a token of their appreciation for what our Soldiers do.

"We are more than someone who wants to do business with you, we actually care," stated Deborah Lawrence, 1st Command financial consultant.

The event helps the families focus more on their Soldiers homecoming and reinforces a strong community and partnership between Fort Hood and the Killeen area.

"When a Soldier get's back and he asks about the car, the spouse can say 'it's already been taken care of' and the Soldier will be really appreciative that someone in the community was looking out for them," stated Greywolf rear detachment commander, Maj. Dave Mc Carthy.

Spouses of the Greywolf brigade can now thankfully check off oil changes from there to do lists, and share more time with their loved ones.

"We thank you," concluded Lottanzio.
