Happy Veteran’s Day!

Today we pay homage to our country’s veterans who have bravely served or continue to serve in the military as a selfless act of patriotism. In order to celebrate, AEO is donating $1,000 to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which offers support to first responders, military personnel and more in honor of deceased firefighter Stephen Siller. AEO is also continuing its annual donation of veteran care packs for a Pittsburgh homeless shelter, which will feature items like imperative hygiene products, hats, socks and more.   

At Aerie, we also want to take time this holiday to highlight the many associates at AEO who make up some of the nation’s honored veterans. Whether they represent the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or Coast Guard, each of these individuals have shown their love for the country through their great act of service. Thank you!
