Who We Are.
Our Story.

We are a 501(c)(3) service organization.

We recognize there are many other outstanding organizations in place to serve our community, including the DoD, VA, and many Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs).  We have found, however, that while each of these organizations offers something in their own right, none provide the comprehensive services that today’s military, veterans, and their families need.  We lived it ourselves and learned how to fill in the gaps – and we want to share that knowledge.

There are, unfortunately, many so-called VSOs that are more concerned about profit than the real needs of their clients.  Using the incredible connection power of our active and retired SEL network, we connect our clients to real Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) who share our passion for supporting the troops. 

  1. Network of Connectors:  Our SELs link members of the military community with service organizations that are vetted to address the specific needs of that client

  2. AEF seminars are provided at no cost to the client or the installation and are designed to complement – not replace – existing transition courses

  3. Our SELs provide real-time updates as they unfold to keep seminars timely and topical

  4. Leveraging the latest technology, AEF can reach out to any client anywhere in the world.  We are everywhere and we are here to help.
