Address:

2700 NE Loop 410, Suite 310 San Antonio TX 78217 USA

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.

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.

I just joined and so far I love it. I love the fact that I might be able to brighten a soldier's day with my silly antics and crazy life. This is a great organization doing great things for soldiers who may not have a family to send them things. We owe so much to them, and I am happy to participate and contribute in any way possible!

I just joined SA this year in March! I have always wanted to be part of a organization like this one. The LWT is a great team and everyone in this community is such wonderful people. You are not only meeting new people who are deployed but you are also meeting new people whom have the same interest as you! I enjoy writing letters to those who are deployed. Whenever I needed help or have questions to ask SA would always respond back few hours later. I am posting a picture of my first letter I wrote in the LWT! I am so happy I joined this organization!

I've been part of Soldier's Angels for about five years now. What a great organization that reaches out to help our Soldiers overseas, their families here in the states, and our Vets who still need that support! They have a support group through e-mail and facebook which gives you so many ideas what to include in our boxes which go overseas to soldiers. It's a great feeling to "adopt" a soldier overseas, and send them letters and boxes of goodies for them to share with other soldiers. It lets them know that we care, and they're not forgotten! Love this organization!!
