Anysolider allows the general public to directly support the troops serving abroad. It feels great to be able to read the stories of the soldiers and send them the items they request.
I have been sending letters and packages through Any Soldier for 3 or 4 years. I love that you can choose your own soldier and are not obligated to send "stuff" on any kind of time-table. You can send just cards & letters if that's all you can afford to do. You need to donate to AnySoldier from time to time to be able to keep receiving names/addresses and I completely understand the reason for that. Whenever you have a question, someone answers it in a timely manner. This organization is an excellent one!!
I had been looking for a website for a while to help support troops and finally found anysoldier.com. I have found this website to be awesome. It is a great way to support our troops overseas with the things they actually need and LETTERS :). This website helps us here in the states to show our love and support to our troops. To complete STRANGERS. God bless. :)
I have been a supporter for countless years it seems. My family has a long tradition of military support with my father, husband, and now daughter all serving. Anysoldier is great for getting a personal connection established when you don't have a current relative sent overseas. The information on the site is enough to get a 'snapshot' of "your" person without invading privacy or Operational Security. While it would be wonderful to have a regular correspondance with "your" serviceman everyone must start with believing it IS NOT going to happen, just due to the nature of war. So any reply is treated as golden, and the anysoldier forums lets you share that joy with others who understand. And lets you hear 'news' even if "your" contact can't write.
The first time I came across the Any Soldier website I was mesmerized by the stories and content. The site is done extremely well, easy to use and the follow-up is immediate. As you read through the wish lists it is virtually impossible to choose just one, but my budget doesn't allow me to pick more than that at a time. I think that Any Soldier is supporting an amazing service for our troops and us at home. I have done other troop support services but this one is the easiest to use, and since you commit at will, it doesn't need to be a hardship.
AnySoldier is one of the best sites I've seen in a long time and the cause is SO worthwhile. The site is well organized, with tons of information and how-to's. There is more than one way to help - send boxes, cards, letters, donate money, etc. This is OUR military and they need to be supported for the sacrifices they make on OUR behalf. I feel that if I can do a little something to brighten THEIR day, then I have made a difference in the life of a soldier. Won't you make a difference too?
I have used Anysoldier.com to adopt deployed military members for the last few years. It is an awesome site that allows our brave men and women to connect with Americans at home who want to support them and let them know we honor them and their mission: to protect American freedom and interests. Addresses and information on what each contact needs are readily available -- actually only a click away! I have received immense pleasure at supporting these brave Americans, and I have not had a single issue with the site. I have recommended the site to others, and will continue to do so. Anysoldier is an awesome organization, and I applaud all they do to support our service men and women.
Any Soldier provides contact information s members of the general public can support deployed military members with care packages and letters. In the 7 years that I've been using this service, I have sent hundreds of care packages to our men & women serving in varous dager zones overseas. The contacts I have made have enriched my life immeasurably - they are always so grateful for anything and so self-effacing about their service. WHat has touched me most is how so many of them request items for the children in these war zones. Their generosity has helped provde school supplies, warm clothing, toys and sports equipment. They ask and the public always responds with an out pouring of gifts that say as much about the hearts of the people who support this program as it does about the contacts it provides. I will always be grateful to the Horn family for setting up this wonderful website, I always make a point of mentioning it whenever anyone asks me why I'm buying all the snacks and hygiene items I send over. I figure that the more people who know, the more support our military will receive. Bravo Zulu to Any Soldier!
This is a great charity because it helps soldiers get a direct link to people wanting to support them. I know a lot of people support and want to help our troops overseas but have no idea what they need or even how to get supplies to them. Any Soldier has provided the much needed link and brightened both the volunteer's day as well as the soldiers'.
