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

I wouldn't make a change. They seem to have figured out all the bugs that might "come up".

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

I met new friends at the post office when they found out what I was doing because they too send packages to troops. They gave me little "hints" for the post office.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Like a better person.

This site gives people like me (with no friends or family deployed) a chance to help and support a soldier overseas. It makes me feel like I can give back to them a little bit for all of what the these soldiers do for me.

Appreciating the little things (like high-quality toilet paper!).

I have been supporting deployed soldiers through AnySoldier.com since Dec. 2006. By support, I mean, letters and care packages. I decide what to send by what the soldier posts approximately every fifty days. I have sent MANY letters and when I can afford to send a package, I have sent, snacks, socks, magazines, national newspapers, pens, notepaper, and items too numerous to mention....I simply try to send what the soldier has asked for.
I never expect an answer to my letters and support (the soldiers are too busy staying alive in an often hostile environment!). If I do hear from them, I am on cloud nine!!! :-) I drop all other mail to read their letter or email!!!
I have been fortunate to have met five members of the military that I have supported....a real honor!!! One Army soldier was like my own child...he called me mom and I became very close to him. My husband has been supportive of me and my soldier "adoptions"and has even driven me to meet some of them.
I would recommend this nonprofit to anyone...it is NOT a dating service, it is NOT a pen pal service (though often soldiers WILL write back and you can choose soldiers that request pen pals if you want). This is not a political site. This is about support for our individual military members, no matter what your views of the war....I try to figure out ways to put a smile on their faces, because I know that they are often in some tense situations.

I would definitely rate AnySoldier, Inc. with FIVE STARS.....it is simply one of the best things I have ever done in my life.

The Great!

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

meeting soldiers that I have supported. They have expressed gratitude for my support. I know that my support meant something to them. The letters of gratitude from many others, I have kept all these years....they still bring a smile to my face. I KNOW that what little I have done has made a difference.

Ways to make it better...

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

simply advertise more so that more people would know about this wonderful organization!

It has touched me deeply due to the people that I have met.

AnySolider.com has provided me with a wonderful avenue to show support to the troops who sacrifice every day for our freedom! I first became aware of the organization when my daughter's fiance was deployed to Afghanistan (he's still there). He has a lot of support from home and I wanted to offer something to show my appreciation to others who might not have the same support. Hello....AnySoldier!!! The site is so easy to follow, extremely professional and just plain great!

Any Soldier is a wonderful organization that allows people to show their appreciation for our deployed military personnel. The website is easy to use and offers helpful tips for sending support to the troops. I have supported many through the organization and have made some lifelong friends. Any Soldier is one of the best Troop Support Organizations out there. A big "Thank you" to them for caring about our Armed Forces!!!

I've been involved with this charity for about 4 years. Never once have I been disappointed in the job that it does to provide the support and comfort of home to our national heroes. By providing a point of contact, thousands of military personnel are served with needed items of food, clothing and other support.

"I needed sheets", one young man wrote to me, " and low and behold...you sent sheets!"

Another one said, " I don't know what my future would have held, had it not been for your love and support."

All of this made possible thru the AnySoldier organization providing the names and addresses to us, the volunteers on the support line.

The Great!

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

Contact with individuals once they return home...their stories are amazing.

My son Scott and Brian Horn were stationed together in Italy and Iraq when I became aware of Any Soldier and I think it is an Amazing group that reaches out to support our soldiers with their needs and wants through letter, cards, personal items and snacks while they are away from their families serving our country. I am proud to know Marty, Sue and Brian and I applaud them in their efforts over the years in supporting our military! Everyone needs to get involved and help this group out, you never know how many lives and hearts you will touch! Thank you to the whole Any Soldier group for touching my life!

Have been with this group for 1.5 yrs. I find it unique & special b/c one of its main goals is to get letters/cards/packages into hands of individual troops receiving little or no mail/support from home; a terrible experience when surrounded by others that do - and in a dangerous place & time. Website is full of HELPFUL information & guidelines; no need to search the net for more info.; it's all here. Support available via Forum & FB page. Come join us! Once you do, it's hard to stop b/c you know you're making a difference - whether in the lives of a group, or 1 soldier feeling alone. Heart-to-heart.

The Great!

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

I've received many cards/letters/emails from soldiers who've received my cards/packages. I know I've helped support soldiers w/ no family support abroad; the reason I joined in the 1st place. Making a difference - 1 soldier at a time!! :)

Ways to make it better...

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

No change - but hope that it continues to thrive after troops are home from Iraq-Afghanistan. There are soldiers - all over the world - that need this type support far from home.

Anysolider allows the general public to directly support the troops serving abroad. It feels great to be able to read the stories of the soldiers and send them the items they request.
