Hello Everyone,

My name is Ben, and I'm beginning my journey into REI. I recently started learning about REI. I currently work full time in the U.S. Army. My goal is to build a portfolio that for passive income that will support my family and give me an option for income if I decide to get out. I heard about the forum listening to the Bigger Pockets Podcast. I haven't gotten started investing yet, but I plan to begin after my next move with the military (PCS).
