This site is the best. You can send US troops cards during the holidays, tuna, beef jerky, and other food. I always send a letter since the troops like to connect with civilian Americans back home. I've been using it since 2005.

I got involved with anysoldier.com when a friend of my brother's was deployed in 2008 and posted some needs on there. after he returned home i kept sending boxes to other heroes who posted on the site. anysoldier is a GREAT way to give back to those who serve our country.

I love this organization. You can donate as much or as little as you want with no pressure. Send a letter or a box of goodies to our troops. There are no huge adminstrative fees and when you donate, you know exactly where your money is going. I've been sending boxes for 1 1/2 years now and it is very rewarding and very addicting! A donation to the actual organization goes to running the website. Very honest and straight forward. Support our troops - you won't be sory!

My husband and I began sending care packages to our grandson and his team in Iraq in 2004. Then, in 2005, we discovered Any Soldier, and began using their program to locate names and addresses of deployed troops that they listed in order to continue sending care packages. They made it so easy to read the requests of the contacts and then just click on the one(s) you wanted to help by fulfilling their requests or just writing to them. We felt like the contacts were extended family, and appreciated the posted updates so that we could stay current even if we never heard personally from them. - Gran

I obtained information regarding Anysoldier from my grand-daughters school newspaper - 5 years ago!!! My sister and I have been shipping every month since then - usually have 2 groups. I am never in the dark regqarding what to ship and not to ship, or how to ship and have only had great results with the mailing kits. A local Drug store jumped on the wagon 4 years ago and has continued to take donations for us in the small town I currently live in - York, SC. I am not sure WHO is the greatest, Walgreens Drugs or the wonderful people in the town who soooo freely give. Praises to the Horns for starting this site- a real blessing to the supporters and to the troops!!!! Even on a couple of occasions it was necessary to contact Marty, his reply was quick and answered my questions fully! I try to spread the word about this site every chance I get. Thank you Marty for all you do!!!

We have had hundreds of emails from the troops we have supported, all so grateful for this site. I am grateful also, that as 1 group returns home, I simply go to the site and c hoose another group with great ease.

I do not know of any changes that can be made. The most difficult thing we have encountered (not often) has been shipping and NEVER knowing if the boxes arrived.

This is a class act. Maintained by folks who understand the military because they themselves have served, it is a site that truly serves the deployed men and women. It provides a way (user-friendly, I might add) that we can connect with our troops. We can send them letters and / or packages and are given information up front pertaining to that particular unit's needs. I have been using this site since 2004 and have sent mail to over 300 troops. I have built friendships with a number of them and have been able to support them through multiple tours. I've even gotten to meet three of them in person, which was a great joy. I work in a school and have involved my students in corresponding, as well. What a mutually beneficial endeavor!

I've gotten lots of positive feedback from the troops supported through this organization, as well as from their families. I have seen my students who received letters back from the troops walk a little taller, thrilled at hearing from genuine heroes.

Such a great charity. How many of you know soldiers? It sure gets lonely for many of them overseas, especially those without family or friends who write to them. Through this charity we are able to write letters and send care packages to the brave men and women in harms way. What a great idea!

I'm a supporter over 6 years now. Any Soldier is easy to understand and to use. If I have a question - I get answer and help " in the next minute". Very easy and sometimes witty is in detail is listed about the rules " what to send" How to send" , Where to send... And what is not to send. The way how it's explain make really sense in the simple words without that anybody can feel offended. It's not a bitter dry site - the humor and love is always to read and feel.
It allows to send packages once or more times, also only to send letters of support.
. Any Soldier is like a friendly big family that welcome new people with open arms. Supporters can share ideas and help eachother-, the detail informations are just perfect, like when the APO fopr the unit close, the information emails a supporter get " to not send anything anymore" cause the contact did not response to the Any soldier page. Also that AnySoldier send reminder to the heros. Anysoldier help in so many ways.

To many ways. When I have a question I get pretty fast answer. When I need new ideas - I get ideas what I could send. When Ihave a problem , I get help. AnySoldier.com is like a big family with all the good and bad family stuff. A lot of fun and always with a ton of respect !!!

I would open the chatroom on the Anysoldier website again - maybe in a diffrent form. Cause that was the reason why I used Anysoldier first and stayed there. I had a question and found help in the chatroom. And I saw it often that " newbies" came in and asked for help and we could help them. Just my wish.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

I think at the moment not one !!!

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

More respect and I found really new friends, it helps me to get new ideas what to send in packages and there is always an " open ear and heart" . People who would not really come together in real life , doesnt matter if rich or poor, come together on AnySoldier.com and help eachother.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

I know I'm not alone doing this and when I need help I get it in the next minute! It's a big family . I learned a lot . Even when it's not easy sometimes it is really like being in a big family

AnySoldier.com allows you to "meet" men and women in the US armed services who will distribute care packages, cards and letters that you send to them to other service members who don't often get mail from back home. If you want to honor the extraordinary service of these brave men and women, then consider logging on,, downloading an name and address and sending a package. Each person gives you a list of the men and women under their command and usually a list of items most needed or wanted. Its easy to do and when you see their acknowledgement and response on the website, you'll understand how much you've affected them.

Its a great thing to do with your kids, too, to teach them about the importance of service - the soldiers' service to our country and your small contribution to serving them. My kids and their friends love writing cards and letters for any holiday (Halloween, Christmas, etc.) to the soldiers and marines. They also join me in shopping for them. They love to pick out the "goodies" that go into the care package.

I've used this site for three years and I highly recommend this site to my friends.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

by receiving emails and photos back from the service members who've distributed the care packages, cards and letters that we've sent. In addition, I've run clothing drives at our local elementary and pre-schools in which we collected gently-used winter coats and sweaters for children in Afghanistan. The service members I've contacted through AnySoldier.com have given them out to school children in Afghanistan.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it so well known that EVERY family in America would send one care package, card or letter once a year!
