I have been a volunteer for this wonderful organization since 2009. I have done several fundraisers, donation drives, and events. Everywhere I go in my Soldiers' Angels shirt, I am stopped by a veteran and THANKED for everything that we do. Soldiers' Angels is by far the greatest nonprofit for military that I know. They go above and beyond for our veterans, active duty, and their families.

I have been an "Angel" for a little over 2 years now. As angels, we adopt deployed military men and women and send care packages and letters of support for them. But that isn't all we do.

This year, over the Fourth of July weekend, I got the honor of coordinating a table in the famous
Luckenbach, Texas to spread the word about Soldiers' Angels. Over a 3 day period, I met hundreds of people that wrote their letters to any deployed hero, we laughed, cried and hugged for a constant 3 days.

A few stories that I will forever hold in my heart came from those three days. I met young men, that while they were deployed had an angel. They said those packages and letters meant the world to them. That no matter how horrible their day or week had been, their Angel mail always cheered them up.

I met a mother of a deployed Airmen. It was the first time in their life that they had been apart for her daughters upcoming birthday. I helped her add her daughter to the list to be adopted, and got permission to send her daughter some birthday cards. Well.... I ended up sending her a birthday in a box!

I also met the parents of an Army Ranger, he is currently on his 4th deployment. His 3rd deployment, he was injured by an IED blast. To say they were distraught, is understating it. We cried together for over an hour, and I promised to keep him in my prayers, and I have, and will forever.

Soldiers' Angels does more than adopt out our deployed military. They support the family left back home, they help wounded warriors by giving them laptops, and through Operation Harmony, help heal their souls.

I love being affiliated with such a wonderful organization. I do not do this for recognition, I never want anything back for volunteering. Hearing stories of how happy our heros are to receive our packages is all the thanks I need.

Soldiers' Angels is also very supportive of their volunteers. We get the help we need to spread the word, and gather more angels. Wingtip to Wingtip!

The Great!

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

The stories from men and women that have had an angel while deployed. Something a former Marine said to me, "It is one thing to get letters from support from home, but to get them from a complete stranger is incredible."

Ways to make it better...

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

Nothing.

I discovered this charity through a retweet by Leah Remini. It took me a few days to give it a try. I'm so glad I did. The work Soldier's Angels does is so worthwhile. I am very proud to bring some comfort to our soldiers. They make the whole process very easy. Also their store is a great easy eat to send a care package. I highly recommend Soldier's Angels to anyone who wants to help our service men and women.

Not only am I a volunteer of Soldiers Angels, but I myself am a proud Army Wife. My husband has told me stories of soldiers who receive no letters, no care packages, no love or support from their friends and family. Sometimes, these poor men and women don't have the family or friends to show their support, so it makes them feel even more alone in an unfamiliar state or sometimes foreign country. Some men and women silently suffer, while others make the devastating decision of taking their own life. They would rather die than be secluded and alone. Soldiers Angels provide our men and women serving our country with that love and support, that friendship, an ear for listening. To know they have someone who is thinking of them, praying for them, be there for them in any way at the drop of the hat, makes them feel loved, wanted and needed (and they truly are!). Soldiers Angels is a wonderful organization doing tremendous things for these men and women fighting for our country. I'm so proud to call myself an Angel :).

My husband was deployed last year. His angel was amazing. She sent him books and so many things to keep him busy. She touched me the most when she never forgot about me as the spouse and always emailed to make sure i was ok and if i need to even just talk. To us, that is the true definition of an angel. Thank you SA for creating something that is so important when we are away from our loved ones. You all will never know how much you really touch our families hearts every single day.

Soldiers Angels not only helps spread the word about getting care pkgs and programs to men and women serving our country to show our support and thanks, but also have programs for those who have served like older vets, new vets, and wounded vets. It's not just about Christmas care pkgs when everyone is thinking of them but letters during the lonely times away from family and between holidays to let them know they are supported back home and someone cares. After a long day fighting and rep the USA, they deserve a marching band but I know I can provide a letter to say Thank you or a pkg of fav cookies or even toothpaste (no corner store in those rocky mtns) with the help of Soldiers Angels. Don't think you can get anymore American than Red, White, and Blue to the heart of Soldiers Angels! As a vol through Soldiers Angels, I get to personally thank soldiers on the ground for all they do through SA Letter Writing Team. I also personally adopted a soldier through SA, putting a face behind the letters and boxes he receives from my family. Then there are the prog getting laptops to wounded soldiers in Hosp, Babyshowers for wives at home while the Dad's to be are serving overseas, and the list goes on ...

This organization is absolutely amazing in what they do. I have several friends and family members in the military. Some of them have received care packages and letters of support from members of the Soldiers' Angels, and they have repeatedly told me how helpful it was to them while they were so far from home. It is because of them that I joined the Soldiers' Angels myself in hopes to spread that same level of appreciation and support to other members of the military, especially those who may not have as much support from home. I actually heard back from some of those to whom I had sent letters telling me how much it meant to them to know they had my support and appreciation. Soldiers' Angels continues to do incredible things for the men and women of our military, and I am proud to say I volunteer through them.

My name is Robert Trickle and I am a Ranger from 3rd Ranger Bn. I just want to say that Soldiers' Angels is an awesome organization and I hope everyone supports them cause they sure do support us in the fight. I have been deployed 4 times to Iraq and Afghanistan during my career and each time we received tons of support and care packages from Soldiers' Angels. They definitely made a difference and boosted the morale in the younger generation. I hope everyone takes the word of a Ranger and gets out their to show their support. Thank you Soldiers' Angels.

I joined Soldiers' Angels about 4 years ago, maybe 5. I'd heard about it from a blog I was reading at the time and their mission to bring a piece of home to deployed soldiers through letters and care packages intrigued me. I checked out their website, read up on their organization, then put it under prayer to God. If I was going to do this, I needed to be sure I could fully commit myself to sending letters and care packages to the soldier I adopted. As they point out on the Soldiers' Angels site, this is serious business. After many months, I was sure that I would be able to support a soldier through my letters and packages. I can say that I've loved every single minute of my volunteer time with Soldiers' Angels. I've never needed them, but I know that if I had questions or needed support, someone from Soldiers' Angels would be there for me. They've grown and adapted over the years I've been with them, and they only seem to get better. I only wish I could afford to do more to support their efforts to uplift our military men and women and their families. As for what I've gotten out of my experiences...well, words aren't adequate to describe how much I've received by volunteering and by serving those who serve our country. When I sit down to write a letter, I give a piece of myself and my little life to a stranger, hoping it will take them out of their day for just a few moments. Perhaps bring a smile to their day. Having to stop and really look at my life every time I write to my soldier, it makes me see how blessed I am and how much God pours out his love for me. How could I not share those riches with someone who's far from their own family and friends? Since volunteering with Soldiers' Angels, I've found it's imossible to stay mired down in self-pity or self-absorption when I know my adoptee has given up more than I've ever been asked to give up...and they volunteered to do so. Soldiers' Angels has provided me with the priecless opportunity to serve those who serve all of us in this great nation. I can never thank them enough for allowing me this time to do my tiny part in giving back to our military.

The letters and emails I've received back from some of my soldiers has made me that much more appreciative of them and all they do.

It would be nice to be more connected locally; to know if there is a local leader for Soldiers' Angels and if there are any activities for the organization that I could participate in as they come up.
