The U.S. Army's 2023 AER Campaign

More Than 80 Years of Soldiers Helping Soldiers

Military service members face unique challenges. Army Emergency Relief was created to alleviate financial distress of Soldiers and Army Families. Financial assistance is available to active duty, retired and eligible reserve component Soldiers.

For more than 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 almost $2 billion in financial assistance, including $1 billion since 9/11. Contributions to AER are tax deductible.

The 2023 Campaign kicks off March 1 and goes through May 15.

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.
