Why Give

“Helping the Army Take Care of its Own”

When you support AER, you help Soldiers achieve stability during challenging times so they can focus on the parts of life that are most important — their Family and their well-being.

I wish to thank your organization for the financial help you have given both Matthew and now Casey. First Matthew graduated from Waynesburg University with the last 3 semesters on Dean’s list and starts his master’s at Waynesburg University as well. My second son, Casey just graduated from from Waynesburg Central HS as a cum laude and in the National Honor Society, and plans on attending Waynesburg University as well. With your financial aid this has made it possible, which I appreciate so very much.”

See first-hand how your generosity is impacting Retired SSG Larry Forbes and his Family.

I was a student in ANOC and one of our fellow students, with a wife and 3 children, needed money for auto repairs.

AER met his need with a grant, no hassle, no run around, just honest support.

Thanks AER, you have my support for life.

Both of her parents served in the Army and AER granted Jasmain Cash a scholarship to assist with expenses. Without supporters like you, this would not have been possible.
When you make a gift to AER, you are supporting Soldiers and their Families when they need it the most.
