Any Soldier, Inc. is a wonderful organization. I first used the site to find addresses for a charitable project for my son's school. It was wonderful for the kids and adults alike. The kids got so excited to send letters and goodies to soldiers around the world. It was such a hit that we continued doing the project. Now my son is in high school and we continue to send to soldiers on a personal level. It is such a good feeling to support the soldiers who are so far from home by sending "feelings of home" in cards, letters, goodies and mostly support. We have gotten several unexpected notes back from soldiers thanking us for the support. This is a fantastic organization. I wish everyone would adopt a soldier on Any Soldier, Inc.
Clearly, this Organization has helped Thousands of deployed personnel over the globe. It has helped provide acute awareness of the basic needs of all branches of U.S. Forces; while telling specific stories written directly from those deployed.
I have been supporting this organization through Iraq and into Afghanistan. The satisfaction derived from my personal involvement has been overwhelming. Many of those supported by me have corresponded directly and even visited my home after their return home. The emotional highlight of a very rewarding experience.
Anysoldier.com makes it feel like Christmas all year. It feels so great to give to our soldiers, marines, sailors, and coasties. The News does not given many details on what they are going through the or number of them that get killed and wounded every day. Remember the Vietman "conflict"? The caskets coming off the planes on the News every night? None of that here - the politicians want everyone to forget our sons and daughters are fighting for OUR LIVES.
Remember those who fight for you, and let them know it! Send a card, a letter, or a care package through www.anysoldier.com. You will get back more than you give!
I have been supporting Any Soldier for about four years. I have sent letters and packages to many of our troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan. It makes me feel so good to feel that I can do a little to help those who are making such huge sacrifices for all of us. I have recieved many letters and e=mails from the troops telling me how much it means to them to get a letter or box from home. I think it is important for our troops to know they are supported by the people back home, and Any Soldier gives me a way to show that support.
Since retiring from teaching school, I have been sending care packages to deployed troops. AnySoldier is the organization I use for contacts with deployed troops. I am very pleased with the work they do in monitoring their website and in encouraging volunteers. They always provide helpful information and updates. They are exceptional in their focus of providing comfort and care to our troops.
I've been blessed to help Anysoldier.com since it's conception in '07, by writing letters and sending care packages to our service men and women in Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas of depolyment. Soldiers who do not receive support from family, receive it from thousands of generous volunteers. They give of their time and money to bless our military in harms' way. We become addicted, especially when we are surprised by having a soldier write us to thank us for our support. It is them who deserve the "thank you". Any Soldier Inc./anysoldier.com is an awesome non-profit begun by a wonderful military family...the Horns.
I have been sending packages and letters to men and women serving in our Armed Forces for about 5 years through Anysoldier.com. Marty Horn and his family started this site in order to provide an avenue for the general public to send care packages and letters of support to the people serving in harms way. The troops can submit things that they can not get where they are located, or things that would make their lives a bit easier. Letters are the most requested items. We can then go though the lists of contacts and pick one that we can support, either because we can provide the items they need, or because their note touches us in some way. It gives us a chance to feel as though we are doing something to help them.
