Each year, The Fraternal Order of Eagles honors the service of troops across the United States and Canada through the Operation Eagle program. Members of the F.O.E. are invited to nominate a fellow member or child/grandchild of a member currently serving the U.S. or Canada. A limited number of nominees will be selected to receive goods donated from across the jurisdiction to be delivered in time for the holiday season. Nominees can be submitted throughout the year, with selections made in August.

In September, Aeries and Auxiliaries are encouraged to send collected items or monetary donations to the Grand Aerie Headquarters. The Grand Aerie recommends interested Aeries/Auxiliaries make check donations made payable to Operation Eagle in order to help tailor each care package to the needs of the selected individual and save our members on the high shipping costs associated with the mailing of a large quantity of goods.

2015 Campaign


Last year, we asked members of the Fraternal Order of Eagles to make donations to our annual Operation Eagle program to assist those overseas this coming holiday season. Eagles stepped up to the plate with $8,369.10 in donations. On Wednesday, Nov. 11, staff from the Grand Aerie Headquarters headed to the Grove City Wal-Mart to purchase items requested by this year's recipients. Thanks to the generosity of Eagles' Aeries and Auxiliaries throughout the United States and Canada, as well as donations from previous years, we were able to purchase $11,901.07  worth of goods to send overseas! Thank you to Eagles everywhere and to Wal-Mart for making this fantastic effort possible. Pictured to the right is a postcard of appreciation sent from the commanding officer CDR Albert A. Alcorn, USN, of the USS Columbus, the submarine that 2015 nominee Stan Serbanica was serving on when last year's packages were sent.
