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 has joined AmazonSmiles, where Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organizations selected by our customers. If you shop on Amazon, why not help us to support our troops overseas?
All proceeds go towards the support of our troops through AAUSS-sponsored care packages. As Adopt A US Soldier is fully staffed by volunteers, your donation will go towards the giving our deployed troops the support they need and deserve.
April 5th is Gold Star Wives Day. This day is to recognize the sacrifices of gold star wives.
We have been hearing some great things from our soldiers in regards to the support they are receiving. We wanted to share some of these comments with you so that you know your support does make a difference.
” I really do appreciate everything that you and this organization does for soldiers. My team and I have practically survived off of these care packages. Thank you” (From one of our Project Frontlines Units)
Hi, thanks for the opportunity to say thank you and thank you for your support. This people are amazing the have send me a lot of stuff I feel like Christmas all ready again thank you very much
Thank you for this site it is a big moral boost for the guys deployed and it puts a smile on their face getting mail. Thank you again.
My sponsors have been awesome. I love the emails I receive from them on a weekly basis, they keep me motivated.
Everything has been going great here because of the people that has been sending packages to me…. When packages come they are awesome and I get to share the things in them for everyone in my office. I truly thank you and I don’t think you know how much every single item in those boxes brings excitement and joy.
For me it is an honor to serve my country and I love doing it. I do really want to thank you for all that you guys are doing for us deployed soldiers. It means a lot to us having someone that’s thinking of us. The supporters that I was assigned are wonderful, not only the care packages but I am still in touch with most of them by email and I get really happy and excited when I get one of the emails. Keep up the good work on everything that you guys are doing!! Thanks.
My experience thus far has been fantastic! The people are very supportive and make my days brighter. I appreciate you all for setting up a support system. It’s much appreciated by myself and I’m sure all adopted soldiers.
Thank for checking in on me . They are amazing every last one of them . I love their support and it’s very amazing. I appreciate everything y’all do
My supporters are great they have been checking on my well-being and have taken the time to know me not just as a soldier but as a person. I appreciate them and their efforts. I know we can all get busy with our lives but knowing that they can take the time out of their day just to see how I’m doing or if there’s anything I may need is very comforting.
Everything is going great. I have received several care packages and I am truly grateful for all of their support and love. You are my hero. I wish you all many blessing to your families and friends.

Thank you so much for assisting with such a great organization. This is my 7th deployment and I decided to give it try after hearing about it.

Hi, thank you for messaging me.
So far I’ve received emails from 2 volunteers. Haven’t been communicating as much with one of them as the other but she did manage send me 1 package which I’m very thankful for. The other I’ve been talking with for about a month, it’s very hard to reply back as fast as I want because I’m so busy, but I try my best.
SureID adopted four units of soldiers through our Project Frontlines program. They sent a total of 15 boxes to their soldiers. These boxes contained about 3208 items that ranged from personal hygiene, games, books, and food.
Our Project Frontlines is a program that is a one time commitment of sending care packages to a unit of soldiers. Right now we have quite a few groups that are available for adoption. If you are interested in sending what you can to a group of soldier on a one time basis please visit our website.
