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!!

AAUSS President

“Well I think you all have the best military support known. I wish more soldiers knew about the program. My group just got out of the field a couple days ago and with my profession I couldn’t tell my sponsors. But its okay. I know someone is there for me. I can’t disclose my location but we’re always ready and i use my supporters fuel as motivation. Thank you all and for all you give!!!”
“Everything is doing good they are all helpful of keeping my motivation up and you guys and theirs support help us a lot being away to our family.. Thank you guys for your support”
“sorry if I haven’t responded lately we have been moving around from different bases and some of them have lil or no internet access. I have had support from the people with things they have sent me for moral and I would like to say thanks a lot from the bottom of my heart”
“Thank you all for your support, as far as feed back on the support it has been amazing. the supporters that were assigned have written letters and sent packages with more than we could ever expect in them. This has been an amazing experience.”
Yes I have been receiving a few packages, I haven’t had time to write to anyone about receiving anyone’s yet. I’m sorry for that, but everything that I have received I have split between parts of the platoon. The platoon and myself could not thank everyone enough for everything everyone is doing, if you could be able to relay to them everything I am greatly appreciative. Like I said I’m sorry I haven’t had to to email them, days have been long and will be long for quite some time.”
