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.

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!

This organization is exceptional in all ways. The response I have received from military soldiers is awesome. I have been a member for 9 years and love writing letters and sending birthday cards. I used to be able to send blankets and boxes but because of financial problems had to quit that part. But still love sending letter and cards and jokes. If I can make one soldier smile and laugh, I will have accomplished something.

I have been with Soldiers Angels for seven years and have been in awe of all that they do for our deployed soldiers. Well, the veterans, too. The deployed families, too. I keep thinking of all that they do, and have to keep adding on. I have sent thousands of letters and birthday cards and an occasional package. If I can make one soldier happy, I have done something right.

I have been with Soldiers Angels for over 8 years. Not often do I get a response from a busy, deployed soldier, but when I do, it is like winning the lottery. You know they are there and appreciating every effort of every angel. It is an organization that does so much for so many when they are far away from home. One girl wrote that mail call was like Christmas. Now, you can't beat that!! Putting smiles on lonesome faces is worth it.

This is such a great organization! I have been a member since 2009 and I have been treated with the utmost respect and friendliness! My group leaders are the best! It is such a blessing to send packages and cards and letters to those serving. Nothing compares to a letter back and knowing that you can give someone a bright moment.

I joined SA when I was 20 years old... almost 15 years ago. I have really enjoyed all the nice people I have spoken with and corresponded with. I am teaching my daughter, who is now 9, that there is so much joy in giving to a stranger and so much character it builds to have respect for our military family. This is a proud legacy I am instilling in my daughter and I hope she continues it. This is such a great organization. I really like knowing that a simple letter could possible brighten up the day for someone overseas that may need the little boost it provides. Thank you SA for all your hard work and dedication to our troops!

I have been an Angel since 2008. It just warms my heart to send something, letters, packages and cards to the soldiers. They have put their lives on the line and it is the least I can do. What a wonderful organization to participate in. Thank you…...

This is a phenomenal organization that as a team functions with lots of love and organization to give directly to our soldiers , their families and their supports on the field. I am so proud to have this team to honor those who give so much for all of us.

I recently joined Soldiers' Angels and am on both the Bakers Team and the Letter-Writing Team. I have been impressed with the responsiveness of team leaders when I've had a question. They are truly on top of this group! I mentioned joining the group to a friend who had lost a son in Afghanistan. She immediately knew the organization and was excited that I had joined. This is a wonderful service to our military. Bravo Zulu everyone!

My only son was killed in an accident 9 years ago and I so desperately needed something to busy my mind. I found Soldiers Angels and began writing. It brought me great comfort and pleased the Soldiers as well. Now I have lots of sons. Thank you Soldiers Angels.

This is a great group. At present, I am only able to participate with writing letters to our men and women in the Armed Forces, but it makes me feel like I am giving something back for everything they are doing for us. I am really impressed with the level of participation and the different types of events and types of help this group gives on an ongoing basis.
