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.

Soldiers' Angels is an amazing organization doing great things for military and veteran families. They reorganized two years ago and they have been growing like crazy. It's so great to see all the great things they are doing!

I have been a part of this wonderful organization since about 2004. I have seen it grow by leaps and bounds, expand it's programs to include active duty, families, children, veterans, K9's - if it is part of the military, there is a program for it. It is without a doubt the most rewarding volunteer opportunity you can be involved in.

I have been a member of the Soldiers' Angels organization for 10 years now. It is the most rewarding experience I have ever had concerning our troops. I am a daughter of a Korean War Veteran and this is one way I thank him for his services as well. I have adopted deployed soldiers throughout the years, even had the honor of meeting one. I have written more letters than I could possibly count, sent care packages and cards, my grandchildren even write to the troops. I also am privileged to send out extra support to other veterans, families of soldiers, care takers, and much more. I honestly cannot imagine not supporting all of them. This organization has been a true blessing in my life by giving me these opportunities. Even if you never receive a response it is a rewarding experience just knowing you are giving your time to another life which is the most precious gift we can give.

Soldiers' Angels is an organization that completely supports our service members who are and who have served overseas via letters, packages, emails, blankets, food, etc. I am so proud to be a part of this organization for the past 5 years. Not only is the service member supported, but the family at home as well. They have community drives to bring awareness and support to our service members, veterans, wounded warriors, and the care givers to those warriors. Veterans who have long been forgotten are now being remembered at VA centers across the nation. Whatever it takes, they are working to fulfill their motto: May No Soldier Go Unloved.

I have been writing letters, sending cards and packages for Soldier's Angels since 2005. It is a great organization and great support for all of our military, especially those deployed. I encourage people to join this team. I know those in the field that receive anything are so appreciative and it lets them know they are not forgotten while away from home.

I have been with Soldiers Angels for 2 years. Sending love from home in personal cards and letters to our soldiers is wonderfully rewarding. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful organization to make all of this possible. Thank you to all of the people who make this all work so smoothly.

I joined Soldiers' Angels in late August 2015 and I have found joy in my participation. I am on the Letter Writing Team and Card Writing Team. I have an Epal whom I correspond with by e mail and letter. It is a wonderful opportunity and when you receive a free letter back, its so rewarding. This is the best volunteer opportunity for me and I hope that one day I can meet at least one of the deployed soldiers Ive been in contact with.
