The U.S. Army's 2023 AER Campaign

More Than 80 Years of Soldiers Helping Soldiers

  • 2023 AER Annual Campaign thank you

For more than 80 years, AER has been the conduit through which Soldiers provide financial support to their fellow Soldiers. The Annual Campaign is held three months of every year, and is the only fundraising the Army may conduct Armywide. The campaign’s purpose is to fully inform 100 percent of all active-duty and Retired Soldiers and their Family members (including spouses and children of deceased Soldiers) about the types of financial assistance available from AER and provide the opportunity for Soldiers to donate.

The 2023 Campaign kicked off March 1 and ended May 15.

AER Headquarters awards installations with the best overall participation each year. Installations are recognized in three categories based on active-duty Soldier population for their participation numbers and money raised. Winners will be honored during the Association of the U.S. Army’s 2023 Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

The 2023 Annual Campaign winners are:

  • Fort Sill, Oklahoma: large installation category (10,000 or more active-duty Soldiers)
  • Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri: medium (2,000-10,000)
  • USAG Wiesbaden, Germany: small (1,000-2,000)

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.
