SEC nails First Command!
http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=21763385

A couple of months ago, some of you were discussing "First Command"- the investment guys that were ripping off soldiers by charging huge up-front sales charges on their investment products.

FirstCommand really toasts my Twinkies. They advocate everything I despise about financial managers. The latest indignity is as I enter the Wyoming Gate at Kirtland AFB, Albuquerque, New Mexico, along with the unit greetings, I'm also greeted by FirstCommand. They're the only commercial firm in the group, and every time I see their sign, my ethics and morals fur gets rubbed the wrong way. I think that the Yahoo story just might possibly be the pebble in my shoe that finally gets me to approach the wing leadership.

**Note: You might want to see if "TMFDj111" is available as he might have some good insight on this fund. It sounds to me like you got a "soldier directed" scam of a managed fund. Again, managed funds in general are not in the interest of the investor as it is the manager. Many never meet or out perform the S&P 500 index, which is the rule of thumb as to where you want your money to at least be performing.
