Army Emergency Relief Scholarship had resources to help active duty military families and retired veterans families in pursuit of a college degree. Not only was I able to get assistance but my two daughters, who graduated from college, were able to get help in the past. Thank you again, Army Emergency Relief!”

– Margaret Davis

Soldiers experience hardships and separation from loved ones in pursuit of their responsibilities, and they sometimes face the worst days of their lives, or just need a helping hand. Taking care of Soldiers and their Families is an enduring priority and the Army is at its best when we work and fight as one team. AER has been a strong partner in the commitment of “Soldiers Helping Soldiers” since 1942.
