The K-16 Air Base Army Emergency Relief (AER) campaign kicks off at the Community Activity Center on March 7, South Korea.

AER has provided over $2 billion of assistance to 4 million Soldiers since 1942.

The program provides grants, interest-free loans, and scholarships to promote readiness and relieve financial distress of Soldiers and their families.

U.S. Army Garrison Yongsan-Casey unit representatives have set a goal of raising $50,000 during this year's campaign.
