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 180 countries/ territories/ independent states with thousands of 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!

A Thank You to All Supporters From Afar

“Good Morning.
Speaking on behalf of all of my Soldiers in the unit, the AAUSS is awesome and provides outstanding support to the Soldiers.  We are blessed to have such an organization supporting us.  I have attached a photo and Holiday greeting from the 43D MDVSS, Camp AJ, KU.  (P.S. I’m holding the dog.) grin
Have a great day! Happy New Year!”


“I would like to thank you and everyone else at AAUSS. This has been my first time reaching out through this organization, and it’s been wonderful. I’ve received a couple of responses. Over the past few weeks, I feel like I’ve really gotten to know the different families that have reached out to me. Being away from home for the holidays was bad, but having the people there, writing to me and sending Christmas cards, made things a lot easier. I appreciate the support. It definitely helps the
time go by. I have a few months left, and AAUSS helped make this time easier on me. This is a great organization, and I would suggest every deployed member stop by. I feel like I’ve made some good friends through here. One family in particular has written me almost every day. I haven’t even met them in person, and I feel loved. Thank you again. Take care and Happy Holidays.”

“So far my experience has been great. I really appreciate people actually taking the time out of their day to write to me and try to get to know me. It is much appreciated.”


“Thanks for taking the time and sending this email.  First, thanks for offering your precious time as a volunteer for this great endeavor. I am grateful for great Americans like you who don’t forget about us. My experience with the program has been great.  I appreciate your hard work and dedication to the program for us. It is all appreciated.”


“We all received your care package today and what a treat it was!  All of the supplies were much needed and the candy was awesome to!  I wish you could have seen all of our faces when we opened the care package and we all started grabbing goody bags, everyone was so excited it was like a bunch of big kids during Christmas.  It means the world to us that you could take the time out of your day and help us out, i wish we
coud return the favor.  I have to go now but from all of us at in india company, Thank You All!!”
