Location: 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.
Target demographics: the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, their families, and Veterans of all eras.
Geographic areas served: the United States and around the world
Programs: - Adopt a Soldier: Individualized support throughout deployment - Angel Bakers: Homemade treats for the deployed - Chaplain Support Team: Help chaplains support the troops - Ladies of Liberty: Extra TLC for deployed females - Letter Writing Team: Personal letters for the deployed - SA Germany: Supporting medevac'd wounded/ill and medical staff at Landstuhl - Valour-IT: Providing adaptive laptops for the severely wounded or injured - VA Hospital Support - Living Legends: Comforting the loved ones left behind when a warrior falls on the battlefield - Operation Top Knot: Handmade gifts & virtual baby showers - Adopt-A-Family: Holiday adoption program to support a family's holiday needs - Women of Valor: Support to female caregivers of Post 9-11 wounded, ill and injured service members. - Sewing Team: Handmade blankets, scarves and pillowcases - Cards Plus Team: Extra TLC for soldiers and families

I have been an angel for a long time. It blessed me just as much as the soldiers when I am able to send a package. Keep up the food work angel s!

I discovered Soldiers Angels in a women's magazine around Christmas, 2004. The article showed how to support our deployed military with letters and care packages. I thought this was something i could easily do and have been involved ever since with many adopted soldiers and worked on many teams. It is wonderful to hear back from these folks and know that we have made a difference in their day, many times with something as simple as a card. Check out our web site and join us.

After writing letters a few years ago; I joined the letter writing team again this Spring. My most memorable letter was from a soldier who I had started to correspond with (it was truly like having the old fashion pen-pal); we had exchanged a few letters and in one I had let this soldier know I had not written because my grandmother had died so belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! The next letter I received came in a huge envelope... because of the joy I had brought her and her unit with my letters they sent me the Flag that flew over their unit!!!
I don't write to receive letters back... I write to thank those who serve; however, the thank you and thought that went into their response was so moving!!! If I can make a soldier smile for a few minutes then that is why I write.
I have explored other areas Soldiers' Angels services and believe that the organization is such an inspiration!!!

I joined this great group last year and love being a part of it. It has helped me to feel useful. My husband is retired from the Navy and I wanted to give to our men and women who are serving this great country and Soldiers' Angels has let me do this. I have 2 soldiers adopted right now.

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

Nothing. It is perfect as it is.

I became an angel last year and haven't looked back. No wing that you can help a military family or bring a smile to a soldier's face whiles tout on deployment is one of the best feelings.
Soldiers' Angels have so many different teams you are sure to find the perfect one for you. The charity support so many men and women in the service and take their job ver seriously, ensuring that they get what's needed.
I'm humbled and proud to be a part of such an amazing group.

Our family has volunteered with Soldier's Angels since we met their founders in 2007. SA is a high quality organization with a true heart for our military and their families! Highly recommended if you truly want to help our troops!

I have been a Soldier's Angel since 09. It was only through Soldier's Angels that I was able to adopt our men and women in uniform and send a monthly box of cheer. It is also through them that I am able to reach out to Chaplains every month and help with their needs and wants as well. Soldier's Angels also has a wonderful letter writing team whereby I am able to write and offer words of thanks. There are so many teams to choose from, there are so many ways to help our deployed. Soldier's Angels is the way to go.

Soldier's Angels has such a wide variety of teams that it is possible for just about everyone to help our men and women in uniform. The organization takes their business very seriously in protecting our heroes and getting what is needed to them at the same time.

I have been a member of Soldiers Angels.org since Memorial Day, 2007. I had seen something on our local news channel about Soldiers Angels a few weeks before. Went to Ft. Logan, our Natl. Cemetery, over Memorial Day, and after visiting my folks(my mom was a Wave during WW!! & my dad was army until he was medically discharged) and my husbands parents (dad was in the Navy in WW!!) decided it was time to "do more" for our military troops and their families. I started by "Adopting" a soldier, then a year later also joined the Crochet Team (now part of the Sewing Team) since I enjoy crocheting and how many hats and scarves does one really need!? LOL Then found the OTK Team - they do virtual baby showers for military families.That allowed me an outlet for the blankets and dolls I enjoy sewing. A few years later I "adopted" a family for the holidays. And, just this past spring I discovered the Cards Plus Team, the Chaplains Support Team and the Angel Bakers. I enjoy baking and can now bake to my heart's content and then send it away. This organization has gone thru many changes over the years, but the core belief of "may no soldier go unloved" has never changed. I am proud and humbled to be a member of Soldiers Angels. a proud.angel
