Aaron’s, Armed Forces Foundation, and HP Team up To Give Deployed Families Computers

Holding a family together during a military deployment can be stressful, and at times difficult.  As military deployments are occurring more frequently and for longer durations, it has become more important than ever for families to be able to stay in touch.  In an effort to help families stay connected, Aaron’s, Inc. and Hewlett-Packard have once again teamed with the Armed Forces Foundation to give away computers to military families. 

At an event held August 12, at the Airborne and Special Operations Museum in Fayetteville, NC, the sponsors held an event giving away 100 computers to 50 families at Fort Bragg.  Each family received two computers, one desktop for the families at home, and a laptop computer for the deployed family member.   All of the computers were equipped with Skype video conferencing technology to help families stay in contact during a deployment. 

Aaron’s, Inc. said that they were happy to once again be able to give something back to the families that have sacrificed for our country.  They said they know they can never fully repay the families for the sacrifices they have made, but have made it a priority to do all they can to help families stay in touch.

The event was held at the museum in downtown Fayetteville.  Representatives from Aaron’s were on hand to distribute the computers, and Hewlett-Packard sent representatives to give product demonstrations to the families receiving computers.  Commanding general of the U.S. Army Special Operations Command General John Mulholland was on hand to greet families at the event.
