 On September 16, 2017, the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Office of Financial Readiness (OFR) briefed the U.S. House Armed Services Committee on their recent efforts to raise awareness of an upcoming change in available retirement systems. The highlight of the briefing was the screening of several promotional video clips that were produced by Vertex Solutions.


Vertex’s Joint Knowledge Online (JKO) development team includes a full-service video production capability. In this case, OFR brought funding to the JKO contract and tagged Vertex to conceptualize and develop a series of 16 short videos for social media, part of a three-month campaign. The videos are currently being released regularly on Facebook, Twitter, and DoD’s YouTube site, and have been viewed more than 5 million times!

 At the end of the briefing, the House Committee commended OFR for the creative approach and use of video, and encouraged them to continue to use this approach in other endeavors throughout the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

 The live-action video series is available on the OFR Facebook page at
