Mission:

Soldiers' Angels is a volunteer-led 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and their families. Founded by the mother of two American soldiers, we have hundreds of thousands of volunteers assisting veterans, wounded and deployed personnel and their families in a variety of unique and effective ways. Soldiers’ Angels responds quickly to requests for support and provides individualized, immediate assistance.  It is a “one-on-one, get it done quickly” organization.  Our volunteer Angels at home adopt individual deployed troops and stay in touch throughout their deployment. Wounded soldiers and their families are asked what they need, and Soldiers’ Angels responds in a hundred different ways:  voice-activated computers; financial assistance for loved ones to stay with their wounded family member; phone cards to call relatives who can’t visit as often as they wish, etc.  Both the organization and the program have grown, but, unfortunately, the needs of our deployed soldiers and their families are growing even faster. This is especially true for our young men and women who are wounded. The government is providing first-class medical care for our wounded soldiers, but it will never be able to provide all of what they deserve and so many services desperately needed by their families.  Soldiers’ Angels works closely with the Department of Defense, the nation’s major veterans groups and a variety of other military support organizations to make sure these brave young men and women who are being helped.

the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, their families, and Veterans of all eras.

Reviews for Soldiers' Angels

Rating: 5 stars  

Soldiers' Angels is a wonderful group that is totally non-profit and cares so much about our Veterans; deployed and all military families. I am part of the Letter Writing Team and I write letters to our deployed men and women of the armed forces. I appreciate all that our military does for us to keep us safe & free and this one way I can give back to them! It's totally a volunteer position and I love it! This organization really cares and I will keep supporting it!

Soldiers' Angels is such a great organization. I am able to support my country and our great soldiers while at the same time work with great people, be creative, and practice writing and communication skills. The organization supports our troops and we all support each other. You can just step right in and get going making a difference right away like I did.

I joined the Letter writing team through Soldiers' Angels back in April and fell in love with the whole idea of writing. Being an English major, I've always had a passion for writing but I've become more accustomed to writing to strangers. Every time I receive mail, I have a smile on my face, especially when soldiers tell me how much they laughed at my letter writing.

I now am a Group Leader of the Letter Writing Team and couldn't be more proud! I hope to encourage new people to write and to make letter writing a hobby again :)

I am a volunteer with Soldiers Angels and am on multiple teams. I retired from a career after 29 years and was looking for a way to work with veterans. I am so lucky to be able to volunteer at the VA hospital here in Denver Colorado. I am so lucky to have contact with veterans and it is so rewarding. I look forward to each time I am at the hospital or at an event.

My story is a little bit different, in that I have been a volunteer for Soldiers' Angels since 2006. We have shipped over 60,000 Christmas stockings to Iraq and Afghanistan. Now we are supporting the VA's in Georgia as well as working with Google to provide laptops to our brave soldiers that have been wounded. This picture was taken May 22 at Trinka Davis Veterans Village in Carrollton, GA. The award is a proclamation from our governor.

I have been with Soldier's Angels since 2006 and my favorite part about this organization is the direct contact we get with each service person we support. I have served on the "Deployed" Team since 2006 and earlier this year joined the "Letter Writing Team" in an effort to extend my gratitude to more Soldier's.
It's a great group and I am Thankful!

I've been adopting soldiers since 2011, and I enjoy it very much. SA's does so much for our service members and vets which makes me proud to be a part of this great organization.

I'm a volunteer at Soldiers' Angels and I love it, I love working with the men and women who protect our Country! It's a amazing organization to volunteer for, with all they do for the soldiers and their families, like letter writing, blanket making, packages, baby showers , and much more. A true organization that helps our heroes!

I saw information about Soldiers' Angels on Facebook and looked them up thinking, it was something I could do. And now I'm doing more than just writing letters, I 've adopted soldiers and feel like they have helped me more than I have them. It's a great opportunity to help service men and women and a wonderful organization to do it though. I have been very happy working with Soldiers Angels.

Joining Soldier's Angels has been one of the most rewarding thing I have done. My son as a formerly deployed soldier recommended Soldiers Angels to me when I wanted to do something for the troops. He said when deployed he was impressed by the care shown by Soldier's Angels. Good all around.
