In 2005, I had felt the war in Iraq & Afghanistan was going to be a long road to acquiring freedom for the people living in those countries. So many of our young men and women believed in the war, especially since 9/11 hit us right here at home. They were willing to fight and even die so that all of us could remain free. I wanted to do my part,SOMETHING that would make a difference. So I went to the internet looking for a website where I could get the names of some of our service men/women so I could write letters of encouragement to them,let them know that their fight was not in vain. I came upon Soldiers' Angels and joined. I was truly astonished by all of the people that joined. I joined the Letter Writing Team, The Baking Team, Sending cards to our wounded and then I came across Ladies of Liberty. Ladies of Liberty is for all the women that have enlisted. I usually received male names and wondered why there weren't any female names given.Each month I am given the name of a female enlisted and I send her a letter or card with a package containing essentials that are needed but not available along with word games, goodies, etc. We also can send letters/cards to other girls if we want to. Recently,monthly birthdays are sent out so that we can give something special to one or more of the ladies for their special day. It is so important that we support and show our gratitude to these ladies-they are someone's mother, daughter, wife, friend and they sacrifice so very much so that we can go to sleep each night knowing we are safe because of them. We are broken up into teams-I belong to Team 4. Paula Kendall and Sandi Halford are team 4 Leaders. They do a fantastic job keeping all of us up-to-date with mail-stops and monthly lists. And they are always there, whenever they are needed. Belonging to Soldiers' Angels is the most rewarding thing I have ever done. It takes dedication to fight for freedom and it also takes dedication to support those that protect us. You can also be assigned aservice man or woman by "adopting" them for their entire time of deployment until they are safely home again. The friendships that you build are truly wonderful. I still hear from some of them, after they had returned home. Sometimes they don't write alot, but they are very busy and just knowing that we back home support them, gives thems the courage to continue on. I now look at service men & women with a true pride of what America stands for. We must each do our own part to keep the rights we so fiercely fight for. Thank you to ALL our enlisted-without them where would WE be right now!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization. I had written to a soldier in Iraq and he sent an applique of an American Flag he wore on his uniform while fighting in Afghanistan as a thank you. I felt so very honored.

As a part of the Fairytale Brownies Customer Service team, I get the opportunity to interact with Soldiers’ Angels/Ladies of Liberty regularly. They are a wonderful organization, helping our men and women serving overseas get the items they so desperately need; items that are really hard to come by in a country so far from home. Soldiers’ Angels/Ladies of Liberty supports our female combat and support forces so generously, and by helping them, it helps the morale of all the forces deployed overseas. As a part of the effort, we have joined with the Ladies of Liberty to provide the women serving overseas with fresh baked brownies, so they can have a taste of home in a place that, sometimes, can seem so lonely. Those strong, courageous women of the U.S. Armed Forces serve daily for the freedom of our country, as well as the freedom and safety of the many nations where they are deployed. Their actions help to provide a safe world in which all of us can live and work every day. Our brownies are just a way of saying THANK YOU to all of the wives, mothers, significant others, sisters, aunts, cousins, and daughters.

The Great!

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

letters and emails of appreciation from all the soldiers, whose lives we've touched. We receive pictures, letters, emails, postcards, all telling us how grateful they are for a small taste of home.

I have been blessed to be a part of Soldiers Angels for awhile. When I read about Ladies of Liberty I joined right away. Women have always been a part of liberty, wherever it exists and wherever it is being born. Our women represent all women everywhere who want whats best for their families, friends and communities. With our women soldiers on the front line doing so many different jobs and interacting with local people wherever they may be, the world sees more of our heart. Women together can accomplish amazing things and our women reach out. I want to help them reach other women and children, families wherever they are and I want our women in the armed forces to know we support them and thank them for leaving their homes and families to help make a difference in this world.Belonging to Ladies of Liberty and Soldiers Angels is one way I hope I can make a small difference, make someone happy with a note, some soap, deodorant, such small things, but they do make a difference.

The Great!

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

I joined to let the Ladies know we support them and got much more from the notes and letters they wrote to me. The things they are doing wherever they are and their personal stories make each day more precious to me, I thank them for keeping me aware.

Ways to make it better...

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

Can't think of anything!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The chance to support our troops at what ever level time wise and financially I am able to.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

A broad range of volunteers, a true mix of our great country, all with a heart for others.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Do even more to fulfill their goal of letting " No soldier go unloved", assisting our soldiers, serving and wounded, and their families.

Ways to make it better...

No idea!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Out country is deploying even more troops, triple the troops mean triple the need and Soldiers Angels/Ladies of Libety are doing amazing things, but we need more people involved. We need more advertisement, free publicitiy!

One thing I'd also say is that...

They are doing an incredible job, keep it up!!!

I've been a member of Soldiers' Angels for several years, but joining the Ladies of Liberty Team has given me a unique opportunity. I have been able to support our military ladies, and gain their perspective on the challenges and rewards of serving our country. The work that the Ladies of Liberty team members do is far reaching. Many of these women, with the support of Soldiers' Angels, are doing amazing things to assist the citizens and children of Iraq and Afghanistan. I wholeheartedly applaud all of the volunteers who give so much of their time to support a very special group of women.

The Great!

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

being able to hear from the women serving in our military, and finding out how the support they receive helps them. The stories these women tell are inspirational.

Last September I was searching the internet to find a volunteer opportunity. I decided on Soldiers' Angels and joined the Ladies of Liberty team. This team sends letters and care packages to the female troops who are deployed. Something as small as a short note or a birthday card means so much to our soldiers. Mail call is their favorite time of the day. You can adopt one soldier or send as many cards or letters as you want to a list of soldiers the team leader sends every month. If you want you can also send one or more care packages, depending on your budget. You can do as much or as little as you want, but I found, once I started getting replies from the soldiers to whom I wrote, it encouraged me to send more. I think I enjoy finding a note in my mailbox as much as they do. Many of our soldiers are very young and it is their first time away from home or they are on their second or third deployment, so they really appreciate any attention they receive, just to know that the people of their country care about them. Soldiers' Angels is a very well run organization and the Ladies of Liberty team is warm, friendly and encouraging to it's members.

The Great!

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

I feel the appreciation of the soldiers that receive my letters and care packages through their replies of thanks from them.

Ways to make it better...

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

Soldiers' Angels is very organized and also open to suggestions. Having most of my experience through the Ladies of Liberty, I feel satisfied with their organization and their willingness to address our ideas.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

receiving replies from the female soldiers that my letter or care package has made their day.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I've only met my team leaders through email and facebook, but I find them helpful and encouraging. I wish there was a way to find other members living nearby.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

support our troops to feel cared for by their country, while they are out there risking their lives for us. To support those soldiers who have come back traumatically injured physically and emotionally.

Ways to make it better...

There had been a little more introduction to feel a part of a group.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

people's objections to the wars we are in and may feel they are supporting the wars if they support our troops.

One thing I'd also say is that...

these soldiers who are our sons, daughters, dads, moms, and friends will eventually get to come home. Until they can, they need to know that we care about them.

I've been a memeber of this organization since 2007, and I've loved every minute of it. I've met so many great American Heros, and amazing people that support them. I've been able to show my daughters the challenges of our military women. They've read about the different world that these women live in for approximately a year, and the simple things they have to live without that we take for grantide. We've been rewarded every month by letters of gratitude for the very people that we support and thank every day. It's an amazing, rewarding, sometimes tearjerking organization that I hope we can be a part of for many years to come.

The Great!

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

every letter I, or my children, have ever received back from one of our Ladies of Liberty.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

helping others that put themselves in harms way every day so that we can go to our jobs, restaurants, and activities safely.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

AMAZING!! I've "met" some of the greatest, unselfish, self-giving people ever made through Soldiers' Angels.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help so many that have put their lives on the line. It could make their days more comfortable, their jobs more rewarding, and help them to know that they haven't been forgotten, and that they are loved, respected, and missed.

I got involved with this organization after a friend's husband was deployed to Iraq and I helped her send packages to him. So when another friend told me about this organization I immediately became involved. Although I don't have much money I do what I can and love that I am helping someone who is over seas fighting for my freedom. I am really enjoying being a member of the Ladies of Liberty and honored to be helping the females who are giving us women at home a sense of what it is to be a strong, independent woman. Go get em soldiers!

When my Dad and 2 cousins were deployed together in 2003, our entire extended family joined forces to support them. We quickly realized that our family members were getting much more support than anyone else in their companies and that some soldiers weren't receiving anything at all so we adopted those soldiers, too. When my husband and I got married in 2004 (he's active duty USAF) we quickly realized that having the support system our families provide (3 of his siblings & 1 sister-in-law are active duty as well) is very unique and we started looking for a way to help those who weren't as fortunate as we are. We found Soldiers' Angels and after looking at other non-profit organizations to help the troops, we joined SA in 2005. We have adopted more than 10 soldiers, helped provide Easter baskets for wounded soldiers' families, brought Christmas goodies to the families staying near their wounded soldiers away from home, and adopted a deployed soldier's family at Christmas so the kids could have gifts while the family was struggling financially. It is so difficult to express how much it means to us to be part of something so amazing and humbling. To receive thank you cards from our young men and women, who are just grateful someone remembers they are fighting for us is unbelievable. We have grown very close to some of our soldiers, and one considers us his family. Some we only hear from once, but that one note or email makes our day. Each and every one has a special place in our hearts. My husband and I have been so blessed and Soldiers' Angels gives us a way to help and say "Thank you" to those who deserve it most and for that we are grateful.

The Great!

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

I've heard from a lot of our adopted soldiers who are so appreciative that we remember them. I hear from a lot of women who are grateful we help them with their unique needs and to have someone who understands how hard it is to be a mom away from her kids

Ways to make it better...

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

Give it more money and volunteers so it could reach it's full potential and accomplish all the things it intends to do for every soldier/airman/sailor/marine.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazing and so inspirational.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Ways to make it better...

nothing.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

One thing I'd also say is that...

Soldiers' Angels is truly amazing.

Three years ago a close friend was on his first deployment to Iraq. I was sending him weekly letters and monthly packages to help make his time a little easier. About two months in he wrote that many of his friend never got mail or packages- nothing. I then started to send extra letters and goodies for him to pass around. Hoping I could reach out to more troops I did a Google search and found Soldier's Angels. I now lead a team for Ladies of Liberty- a team that supports deployed females. In a world dominated by males, it is often hard for them to find things to make them feel like a woman. Sending them nail polish, perfumed lotion and all kinds of 'girly' items really helps to empower them and make them feel strong, yet feminine. I am also a member of the Letter Writing Team and write a letter to a different assigned soldier each week. I have met some wonderful men and women through this program and have unofficially adopted several soldiers who responded to one of my letters. It is not hard to feel forgotten when you are out serving our country and this program is a FANTASTIC and well organized way to let them know they they are our heroes and we are always thinking of them and support them!

The Great!

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

I have gotten over 100 responses back from the ladies we serve letting me know how much our support means to them. Often times the contact they recieve from Soldiers Angels is the only contact they get from home, so it really does change thier world!

I have been sending items of support to our troops since Desert Storm when my friends were being deployed. Now, twenty years later, I'm a little older and needed a vessel to be able to connect with & support our troops again. Through Soldier's Angels, I have been able to adopt troops to send regular items to and have also sent countless other troops packages of items they need, penpal type letters, and cards of encouragement & support. Sometimes I am even lucky enough to get a little thank you card back from them, which completely makes my day! Soldier's Angels is the vessel any proud patriotic American troop-supporter could benefit from! We 'angels' benefit because we have the satisfaction of knowing we are supporting those incredible individuals who selflessly sacrifice so much for us. I haven't joined the military but I can sure support & help those who have! I'm so grateful Soldier's Angels exists because, otherwise, I might not have been able to connect with and support all the troops that I have over the past few years. Any the staff of Soldier's Angels I've ever had dealings with has been absolutely fantastic, as well!
