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.

I am currently deployed out in the persian gulf and this organization has been very generous and supportive to me and my ship. I really appreciate the individuals from this organization that have sent care packages and letters of support. It's hard being out here in the sand box but these letters from home really reminds us why we choose to serve.

I love having a angel to talk to when things are getting me down. They listen and give great input when need. They will always be my angel. My husband loved getting father day cards. Made him feel important and not just the person in the background.

When my husband was injured soldier's angels donated some clothes to him. I never thought about what was on that shirt. It's been 5 years now and I recently found soldier's angels when we didn't know how we were going to survive. His injuries had progressed to where he is unable to work and some days unable to get out of bed. Since finding this organization, I have found support that I have desperately needed. My husband has realized that he is not alone. We have become a stronger couple and before we were almost to a point where we were ready to give up. This organization has given us both hope. Where all was lost a few months ago. I am so very thankful that I found them.

My husband was adopted by Soldier's Angels while he was in Iraq. Since he was injured, the Soldier's Angels have adopted me on holidays such as Mother's Day, and my husband during Father's Day. We have received wonderful letters, and even a few gifts. These Angels are selfless and have really touched our hearts.

These folks are angels, no doubt about it. I have been blessed to receive their help, and their beautiful cards and letters, as I prepare for the birth of my first child. My husband is deployed again, and things are stressful. Having the blessings that these folks provide, and the encouragement of their beautiful letters, has made a huge difference. I will return the favor and become a volunteer once my husband is home and we are past the initial burden of a newborn. I cannot thank these folks enough. They are truly blessed angels!
