Thinking back of the times the AER provided support while on active duty, and into retirement, I can only hope my story may enlighten others to support the AER! To extend our gratitude, we are happy to be able to contribute to the AER, so that they may continue to provided so much, for our military community.
Our first experience was during a PCS, we were provided a small loan which assisted with the transition. Then, while traveling on vacation, our truck broke down with an estimated cost of $5k to repair, which again AER assisted with repairs so we were able to return home. Then when a family member was critically hospitalize and asking to see me, AER help us with travel expense which made it possible to be with my sister before her passing. You see, I have much to be thankful for with the AER being there for my family! So, I am fortunate to contribute to an organization that provides needed support, for those in need!
