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

My husband and I have been Soldiers' Angels since about 2006. It brings us joy to know we are helping someone in the military in a war zone by writing them and sending them care packages. The responses we receive for our efforts are worth more than we could ever give. Through Soldiers' Angels we are connected with men and women in the military. Otherwise we'd never know how to connect. And, the volunteer leaders are fantastic. If we have a question, we know where to go to get an answer! Jackie and Bill Eadie

soldier Angels is an awesome group, I was very excited to become a volunteer, the soldiers appreciate getting letters and boxes, when they get letters and boxes they know that there are Americans back home thinking of them and Praying for them , this organization does so much for our Soldiers as well as Veterans and wounded Soldiers, I am so glad that Imam apart of this, I have written and sent boxes to many Soldiers through this wonderful organization, some have written back, emailed back and some have not, even if they have not responded back I still adopt Soldiers and write to them and send the packages, MAY NO SOLDIER GO UNLOVED.

I have never been involved with a non-profit before Soldiers' Angels. Somehow I started following them on Facebook and then realized to go check out their website and saw I could support our troops besides just care packages. Knowing that these soldiers really appreciate hearing from back home. I have always been drawn to the military, was not lucky enough to have a strong military (step-dad a reserve Navy). I felt the need to do something else to show that I am always thinking of them. This is such a great non-profit.

I followed Soldiers' Angels on Facebook before I realized the website. I always wanted to do more to support our troops and our vets. It was nice to know I could still show support by writing letters (and a few care packages to the soldiers on my list). I loved it so much at I even adopted a soldiers. I'm fairly new to writing so I haven't heard back from anyone. But, that's not why I'm doing this. It's to show my love and support to all that service.

This is a very special non profit. Supporting the troops while deployed is no easy task since there are thousands! I help because I want to make sure each and every soldier knows their service is appreciated.

As a wife of a veteran, I was so excited to become a volunteer with Soldiers' Angels! This amazing organization does so much for our veterans and deployed active duty personnel. I have had the pleasure of helping at several events and it is wonderful to see the difference this organization makes for our veterans and service members! I am proud to be an Angel!

I joined Soldier's Angels based on its commitment to serve deployed soldiers, veterans, and wounded soldiers. The soldiers are truly appreciative to get letters and care packs from the volunteers in this organization. This is one of the few charitable organizations where most of the financial support goes directly to the soldiers in the field and not administrative costs.

I have been writing letters and adopting soldiers since December 2012. I have so many family member who are or were in the military and know first hand how important letters from home are. I can tell from the letters and communications i receive back, that the troops really do appreciate the cards/letters/care packs -- even if they are from people they do not know. This organization allows me the opportunity to express my thanks to the troops on an individual basis, and to let them know how important their work is to America.

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

would want at least the postage on my care packs to my adopted soldier be tax deductible.

I have been a volunteer for only a short time but enjoy it very much the soldiers appreciate everything Soldiers Angels does and stands for. It is a wonderful organization and has touched the lives of so many, and many in a time of need. If it's just a friendly letter or a awesome care package it puts a smile on a Soldiers face you never know if that's just the thing they needed to get thru that day.

I have been a volunteer for almost two years now. This agency does wonderful things for our troops! They have a variety of ways to help out and are great with communicating what the agency has been doing. The customer service folks are quick to help you with your needs. It's so rewarding to be able to do the work of a soldiers' angel with this group.

I have been a volunteer with Soldiers Angels for 3 years and have thus far adopted 4 soldiers. This is such a worthwhile organization. The soldiers are so appreciative of the letters and packages sent to them. It means so much to them, and I can't tell you how much I enjoy supporting our troops through Soldiers Angels. I shall continue to adopt soldiers for a very,. very, VERY long time!
