Honoring Our Veterans At AEO

On November 11, we annually memorialize the Veterans who have served in all branches of the military. Today and every day, AEO is grateful for the men and women who have given their time – and their lives – to protect and serve our country. We are proud to work alongside several veterans, who are continuing their post-military careers with us at AEO. Below, we’re introducing you to two of those men: Keith Deisenroth and Jason Reighard.

KEITH DEISENROTH

What is your role at AEO?
Security / Loss Prevention Supervisor at the Hazleton Distribution Center.

In what branch of the military did you serve and for how long?
Retired United States Marine with 17 years of service.

Where were you based during your service?
I’ve been stationed at Camp Pendleton, CA; Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego, CA; Completed a successful tour as a Marine Recruiter working out of Permanent Contact Station Walnutport, PA; Camp Lejeune, NC.

Why did you decide to join the military?
I’d like to quote the Honorable Mr. Ronald Reagan here: “Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world, Marines don’t have that problem.” Prior to enlisting into the Marine Corps Delayed Entry Program, I was unsure of what it is I wanted to do with my future, but I felt like I had an obligation to give back to this country, like so many did before.

Deisenroth

Do you have any advice for people who are thinking about serving?
Yes, put 100% effort into everything you do and you will be successful. Mistakes will be made. Learn from those mistakes and pass on that knowledge to others.

Who was your biggest supporter during your service?
My wife, Jamie. We were married in 1997, and she, along with my two children, are my biggest motivation.

Did you learn anything about yourself or the world around you during your service?
Yes, the world is a very unstable place, and you always have to be ready to face the “unknown” or the “unexpected”.

What are your plans for the future?
I’d like to be in a position to fully retire at a decent age in order to spend as much time as possible with my family.

Veterans' Day

JASON REIGHARD

What is your role at AEO?
Security & Emergency Management Supervisor, Oversee the corporate initiative to provide safe and secure work environment and ensure the protection of company assets. Maintain physical security of American Eagle Outfitters Ottawa Campus.

In what branch of the military did you serve and for how long?
United States Marine Corps, 5 years

Where were you based during your service?
Bangor, WA & Camp Pendleton, CA

Why did you decide to join the military?
I joined the USMC because it’s a desire I had since I was a little kid. I knew growing up I looked up to the military and knew it was a career path I wanted to choose. Going into my senior year I knew if I was going to join the military it was going to be the Marines. Marines emulated the kind of competitiveness I’ve always had.

Reighard

Do you have any advice for people who are thinking about serving?
It’s a choice that is difficult to make and one at first you might regret, but after getting out of the Marines it’s a choice I wouldn’t change for the world.

Who was your biggest supporter during your service?
My Family.

Did you learn anything about yourself or the world around you during your service?
I learned how great our Country truly is and how blessed our life is in America. The countries I have been to have shown me not to take the small things for granted.

What are your plans for the future?
My plans are to continue to grow my career at AEO.

AEO would like to thank Keith, Jason and the veterans employed by AEO, as well as all veterans across the country, for their service.

Now & Layer: AEO Parkas

We hate to break it to you, but hot temps won’t last forever. When staying warm is high on our list of priorities (think late fall walks and winter adventures), we turn to our collection of parkas. Not to brag, but our parkas are pretty awesome. With just enough weight from polarlite insulation to keep you cozy, but not so much heft that you feel like Randy from A Christmas Story, AEO parkas are perfect for layering. Plus, they have a few key details that will differentiate them from your average winter coat. We want to show you why our parkas are an outerwear staple, so check out our favorite men’s and women’s parkas below.

Labor Day Outfit Guide

With fall right around the corner, Labor Day weekend is the perfect time to debut trends from the upcoming season. Although we’ll miss summer, we’re excited about vintage vibes and heritage prints, so naturally, we had to pull some of our favorite fall pieces like suede clogs and plaid button downs. We love the carefree contrast that shorter summer hemlines bring to these looks. Your only job this weekend? Soak up the last days of summer.

Girls
Stay cool at picnics this weekend in a breezy embroidered peasant dress. Dress up your outfit with suede clogs, one of our favorite shoes from the upcoming season, and add a fringe crossbody bag and stacked necklaces for a boho vibe.

Guys
Show your true colors in a classic plaid button down. Tan shorts and a baseball cap are summer holiday essentials, and sneakers will carry you from lunch around the grill to a pickup volleyball game with friends.
