Welcome to Adopt A US Soldier

Adopt A US Soldier is a non-profit organization that seeks volunteers to help show the brave men and women fighting for our freedom that their sacrifices will not go unnoticed. It connects supportive civilians with deployed troops and offers a channel by which to communicate encouragement and express gratitude to those brave men and women serving in the United States Armed Forces.


Staffed fully by volunteers, AAUSS has helped thousands of soldiers find friendship, support, and a much loved and needed touch of home.

Adopt A US Soldier is active in over 170+ countries/ territories/ independent states with over 1,000,000 active volunteers supporting our troops by adopting a soldier. It is very easy to do and more rewarding than you can imagine, and you will show a soldier that you support them and cherish your freedom. We ask that you send your soldier a weekly letter or postcard for long term adoption because a letter is like a hug from home!!

                                                          Your support makes a difference!

AAUSS Closing

AAUSS has been around for 14 years and it has hopefully lived up to its mission of giving support to our deployed soldiers.  Our supporters have never disappointed our soldiers with their caring nature and eagerness to help.  Our soldiers are forever grateful that basic strangers have reached out to them and offered food, toiletries, reading materials, or just an open mind, heart and ears in which to vent to.

Supporters, you have changed lives no matter how little you think you did. 

Soldiers, you can never be thanked enough for your service.

Now that things have somewhat calmed down overseas, which is of course wonderful, it has diminished the need for our organization. Unfortunately though we have been faced with an agonizing decision. 
The Board of Directors has decided to close down Adopt A US Soldier. 

We will be keeping the forums and personal accounts accessible until May 15, 2019.  After that there will no longer be any way to obtain any information.
Again, we cannot express the amount of appreciation we have for all of you.  Such giving, caring people seem rare these days.

Options for Christmas Cards

Last year, we collected Christmas cards for the troops. However, WE WILL NOT BE COLLECTING THEM THIS YEAR.

We know many enjoyed doing this and we were excited to collect more than 27 flat rate boxes last year.

So, if you are wanting to send cards this year, I would suggest you do a search online or even through Facebook. Two options did pop up, but we did not look at the programs in depth. A reminder is to always check the program out to make sure it is what you are looking for when sending cards to our troops. And, pay attention to deadlines from that organization.

We appreciate your continued support to our troops and being a part of AAUSS.
