Support our mission

The Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, Air Force Aid Society and Army Community Services are now accepting Army and Air Force Exchange Service gift certicates for servicemembers and their families.

The donations are through AAFES’ Gifts from the Homefront program, according to an AAFES news release.

At Landstuhl, where some of the servicemembers wounded during Operation Iraqi Freedom are receiving treatment, the certificates can be used to buy toiletries, sweat clothes, undergarments, prepaid phone cards and other items, according to the release.

The Air Force Aid Society, the official charity of the U.S. Air Force, will donate the certificates to airmen and their families.

Army families will receive the certificates through Army Community Services family support programs. Donations can also be made to forward-deployed soldiers through a link on the AAFES Web site:

Certificates can be redeemed for merchandise at all AAFES post exchanges and base exchanges throughout the world.

Details on how to donate are available at the AAFES Web site.
