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 have participated as a volunteer for two Soldier'so Angel's teams and have found the nonprofit to be well organized and efficient. Coordinators are responsive and helpful, and my efforts seemed to make a significant difference to the soldiers.

I love volunteering for Soldiers' Angels. The soldiers always find time to write such a gracious Thank You note and this alone is enough for me to keep writing/sending. This organization provides you with the necessary tools to brighten that soldier's day/week!

I cannot express how grateful I am that this organization exits. I have been writing to soldiers since the Vietnam era and most of the letters went to male soldiers. This organization caught my attention with the teams dedicated to the female soldiers. I belong to Ladies of Liberty, Letter Writing Team and Birthday wishes. Writing to these women make me very humble and proud of what they are sacrificing daily. Also many of the women I have corresponded with have stayed in touch until they are stateside.

Love love love what this organization does! I also love that you can jump in and serve at various levels. Right now I don't have a ton of money so I do letter writing team but I have done care packages in the past. These men and women serve our country and are so not cared for like they should be. Soldiers' Angels also has a great website which makes it all so simple to see your people you're serving and working with as well as your own team. Highly recommend jumping in!

Serving those who are serving us in the armed forces is an amazing and rewarding opportunity to give the gift of support and encouragement. This is a great way to recognize and honor their selfless dedication and devotion to our country and all of us and let them know we have not forgotten them. Sometimes it paves the way for lasting and true friendships.

I have been a member of soldiers angels for several months. This organization provides civilians with the opportunity to directly connect with deployed soldiers, wounded soldiers, military families, caregivers to the wounded. We are able to support our service men and women in so many ways - the least they deserve. I was surprised by the rapid and enthusiastic response I received from the volunteers who are group leaders. They help guide you through every step. I handle the cost for shipping and mailing, etc. - reporting to the organization. I wanted to reach out and support the members of our military and their families and am so happy I found Soldiers Angels.

I have less than a full year with Soldier Angels but have thoroughly enjoyed every day of my time with this organization. The opportunity to send letters, packages, cards and well wishes to our soldiers who are fighting to keep our country free is quite fulfilling. We can't all do our part IN the military but we can all do our part FOR the military!

I signed up in November of last year because I was looking for a place to send cards to our Veterans and Soldier's for Christmas. I think this is a wonderful program and I really enjoy sending cards and Care packages to those who have and are currently serving. I feel as though it's a small thank you on my part for what they do and have done for us and our Country. I'm happy that I can do a little something to bring a smile to someone's face even if it's just a birthday card and being a Soldier's Angeles Volunteer allows me to do that!
