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.

Soldier's Angels leaders are incredibly helpful with questions about how the different programs work. Different volunteer groups allow you to choose a form of soldier/veteran support that best fits your desired time and financial commitments. I've adopted two soldiers over the years, done the card writing team, and most recently joined the sewing and craft team. Volunteers also share ideas, questions, knowledge, and pictures of crafted items/ care package contents within Facebook groups. It's nice to see what everyone else is working on despite being very geographically diverse. All around a GREAT organization to support an amazing group of people.

I joined Soldiers Angels team in February of 2015 and it is an honor to be among such caring individuals that give of not only money but their time so selflessly month after month and pay such attention to detail to the boxes that they fix for the soldiers they try to give a gift that the soldier will remember if only for a fleeting moment of time. They help in so many different ways, if even with just a letter of support from home. It is a honor to be of this group and hope to continue for many years to come and hope I can continue to encourage more like minded souls to join this fine group of Men and Women to give of themselves for our service personell.

Soldiers Angels is a great organization. I have many family members and friends who are or were in the military. Talking with them I know how important an organization like this is. My adopted soldiers are very grateful who what I do and for what everyone else does as well.

I joined Soldiers' Angels in May 2015 as I wanted to show my support to our military. I have sponsored three deployed soldiers and it has been such an honor to be a support and encouragement to our service members. This is a wonderful organization that does amazing work for our country and should be recognized as such. I'm so thankful I have been added to this great family!

As a Gold Star sister, I am honored to be able to write to the men and women who are serving our country and protecting us all. I am thankful to be associated with the Soldiers' Angels organization as this program is such a blessing to not only the soldiers who are receiving the letters/cards etc but also to the ones who are able to send appreciation and love to them through the mail.

I've been a member of Soldiers Angels now for a little more than 4 years and it's given me the opportunity to help reach out to our service men and women and thank them for their service to our great country. It's also given me the chance to touch the hearts of their family members at times by way of sending a card for one reason or another. I've also sent crochet lap blankets to several veterans hospitals with the help of Soldiers Angels. Sent my handmade Christmas cards to over 300 injured soldiers that otherwise I would not have had access to had it not been for Soldiers Angels contacts. The amazing work done by and through Soldiers Angels can't be measured by counting votes or headcounts . . . but by the hearts they touch through each Angel connected to this organization. I'm proud to call myself one of those Angels!

I have been with Soldier's Angels for a little over month and it is so rewarding to know we are making a difference in the lives of the men and women serving for our country around the world. Every little bit we can do for these brave soldiers means the world to them, and it makes a difference in their days. It's a great organization and does such good work!

I am proud to say that I have been with Soldiers' Angels since 2008. I've seen how this organization goes all out for the Soldier, as well as the Family and Care Givers. They are quite diversified, having many Teams to choose from to be able to do so much from adopting a soldier, to just being a part of the Etter Writing Team which consists of writing letters to our Soldiers showing them our Support helping to boost morale, Card Plus Team cards from Birthdays for a soldier, or WWII Veteran, Get a well, send some TLC and so much more. Just as there are many other teams. This organization has a Heart of Gold doing so very much for the troops also for their Silder's' Angels, should they need a time of leave it is except able and your position is deactivated once able to return. I have been with SA for a long time enjoying all they do for our Trooos in many ways.
