About Walt
Walter Whitnum joined First Command Financial Services as a Financial Advisor in June 2008, bringing 18 years of financial industry experience with him. Previously, he served as President of Aristatrade Securities, where he was responsible for overseeing daily activities and analyzing securities based on fundamental and technical analysis.

Walter attended Farmingdale State College and holds Series 6, 63, 7, 24, 65 and 66 securities licenses plus state life and health insurance licenses. He is a member of the Financial Planning Association.

Walter understands that purposeful investing requires both prudent investment selection and disciplined behavior, and he can recommend carefully selected investment products that support clients' goals for retirement planning, education funding, asset management and more. And because risk management is an essential part of a financial plan, Walter frequently helps clients develop a cost-effective insurance strategy to manage risks to their financial well-being.

A former Vice President of St. Jude's Children Research Hospital in Long Island, Walter is an inductee in the Long Island Softball Hall of Fame and President and founder of the William R. Johnston Memorial Scholarship Fund, which he founded in honor of a friend in the New York City Fire Department. An avid sportsman, Walter enjoys baseball, golf, fishing, boating, country music, coaching, training, church and spending time with friends and family, especially his children, Amanda and Travis.
