AUSA member benefits - Many ways to spread holiday cheer

AUSA member benefits - Many ways to spread holiday cheer

Tuesday, November 7, 2017

It’s hard to believe it’s already time to think about Christmas, holiday traveling, shopping and gift giving – and we have a variety of ways to help you.

First, consider giving an AUSA membership.

This is a win-win-win as AUSA is growing membership to increase our support to soldiers, Army civilians, and families – and be a stronger voice on Capitol Hill for their needs. You win for the thoughtfulness of your gift, and the recipient wins with access to the professional development and other resources AUSA membership provides.

They will also be eligible for all the discounts that you enjoy. Visit to give the gift of membership.

Second, a tax-deductible donation to AUSA

A donation in the recipient’s name to support AUSA’s scholarship programs, family support programs or the Institute of Land Warfare’s work to educate on defense issues is an excellent gift.
