The U.S. Army's 2022 AER Campaign
80 Years of Soldiers Helping Soldiers
Military service members face unique challenges. Army Emergency Relief was created to alleviate financial distress as an incident to service. Financial assistance is available to active duty, retired and eligible reserve component Soldiers.
For 80 years, AER has been the conduit through which Soldiers provide financial support to their brothers and sisters in arms. Since 1942, AER has supported 4 million Soldiers with nearly $2 billion in financial assistance, including $1 billion since 9/11. Contributions to AER are tax deductible.

As the AER rep for my unit and someone who has utilized AER, I make sure that my Soldiers know the information and aren’t afraid to come to leadership when they need financial help.

Army Emergency Relief is an invaluable resource to take care of our people while ensuring we will always be prepared to “Fight to Win Our Nation’s Wars.” AER plays a critical role in helping members of the Army team facing financial difficulties and unexpected challenges. AER provides our Soldiers a helping hand when they need it most.
