Since its founding during World War II, Army Emergency Relief has provided $1.7 billion in interest-free loans and grants to 3.6 million Soldiers in the active component, the Army National Guard, the Army Reserve and among the ranks of the retired.

AER financial assistance provides timely care and support to wounded warriors, surviving spouses and the families of fallen Soldiers.

AER stands ready to assist during times of duress brought on by emergency travel, unforeseen home and vehicle repairs, and other moments of stress. Wherever our Soldiers work and live, AER is there to lend a helping hand.

History has shown that the readiness of the U.S. Army is inextricably tied to taking care of Soldiers and their families.

The 2015 AER Campaign theme, “Making a Difference,” serves as a reminder that Soldier and family members can place their trust and confidence in AER to provide compassion and care through much-needed financial relief in times of unexpected crisis.

The AER Campaign is an opportunity for mission and garrison command teams to promote greater awareness of AER benefits and to continue the legacy of Soldiers helping Soldiers.

The personal dedication of Army leaders at all levels to embrace AER makes a clear difference in caring for our most precious resources: Our Soldiers and their families.

Army Strong!
