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!

   

 


Thank You Donors!

Many people will donate to AAUSS through our Paypal account or sending checks to our mailing address. We appreciate your donation and here is just one example of where our funds go. They wanted to say thank you and now the unit has some entertainment during their down time which was needed very much!

We thought it would be great to share a few words from our troops:

“My supporters have been some of the most kind and generous people that I have ever met. They are more than happy to send what they can to support not only me, but my platoon. The morale has been raised every-time I see a package. I have been called Santa clause many times because I get to share what they have give . Thank you so much for your organization,”
______________________

“Things are great and I appreciate all the supporters. I wasn’t expecting so many. I look forward to reading my emails and escaping the daily routine and concerns of everyday life out here. It has been a great service to just get emails and have a connection to the outside world. Its weird but one would think it is important to keep your head in the game out here, and you do, but its also not good to only be here 24/7 because soldiers go crazy like that. packages have come periodically and are also greatly appreciated.”
____________________________

“Hello, I believe I owe you an e-mail once a month informing you we are still out here, but more importantly I want to give thanks for all the wonderful support we have and are receiving! We have enjoyed communicating with some of our supporters and find them very interesting. I have shared AAUSS with several of my fellow Marines as they have received amazing support as well. Thank all of you for everything you do for each and every one of us here, believe us when we say we are thankful for you and honored to serve!”
__________________________

“I’ve been getting lots of handwritten letters in the mail, from a lot of different people. It’s been really great. Thanks for following up with
me. Sorry for not replying sooner.”
____________________

“So far so good. I have a couple people that have sent me care packages. They have emailed and communicated with me and asked me what I need. I have also received a lot of letters from people who just write me. So, so far everything has been wonderful. I am extremely grateful and pleased with the program.”

Support Our Troops And Send a Care Package This Week!

We have 25 units with about 1,200 service members looking for support through our Project Frontlines Program. This program is for large groups or people who just want to send a one time care package to our troops overseas. The units range from 8 to 500 and you only send what you can. The contact person for the unit will do the rest.

So this weekend while having friends over for a BBQ, why not collect some items to ship over? Register for a unit to see if they have a specific request or collect some of the items below:

coffee
flavored creamers
shampoo/conditioner
liquid soap
shaving cream
shavers
loofas
toothpaste
toothbrushes
LOTION
chapstick
hard candies
snacks

Or even develop a them care package like Christmas in July, movie night, pirates theme, sporting or such. Involve the kids and have them draw pictures and cards. Make your box special.  Have fun with it!

I have had four people respond and we have been emailing back and forth. I understand that it takes some time for packages to get here. So far I have gotten one and it was amazing. I did not ask for much but she sent way more than what was asked for. Lots of necessities that I needed a lot more than I thought.I have told many other soldiers about the program and even gotten a couple of people to sign up as well.I appreciate everything so far, thank you so much for your continuous support.

Armed Forces Day

May 21, 2016

President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.
On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days.
The single day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense. (http://afd.defense.gov/)
