I was involved with AS for a number of years. Donating, time, monies and a lot of love. That all crashed after reading the dollars both Marty and his son collect from the AS site. I found those amounts to be completely out of line. You can review the taxes and incomes through http://www.charitynavigator.org/ Because the Any Soldier Inc. site does not take in 1 million dollars, you must look at their info using unrated category or EIN # 20-1240385 .
Form 990 Revenue Income Amount $241,418
Wages for 3 employees $ 142,729
Assets including in home office, equipment, furniture, etc. $ 45,808
Disheartened supporter-2014 not posted yet but I expect similar findings. :(

Last year I found out about Any Soldier and sent a 16 oz package to a soldier who was from my state. This year I found out that he had been discharged in 2006! I intend to send a package soon, but I am going to make double sure that the recipient is still in the service!

This site is marvelous and I came to learn about it through a church connection. My connection met the founder, a vet himself, and found that the organization was genuine....It is a fabulously designed website where a donor can select the troops who are to be the recipients, thus establishing a quasi-personal relationship. Supporting our troops is SUCH a worthy charitable activity. I highly recommend people visit the site, select a place to send a package or simply letters to the troops, and remember to donate at least a little something to the site for all the work that the organizer does.

I found the anysoldier website listed in a July 2012 issue of Woman's World magazine and promptly checked out the site. It was easy to navigate and in less than a week, my son and I have mailed out 3 care packages to troops in Afghanistan. It's so easy to help the troops....you just click on their names and they tell you what they need. I like that we can send their immediate needs and wants directly to them. What a great site and my son and I plan to send at least one box per month out.

I wanted to send Christmas packages to the troops in Afghanistan. I was leery after reading about various scams doing this sort of thing. I took a chance and I couldn't bee more satisfied. I didn't expect to receive correspondence confirming my packages had arrived, but I did! I received six letters from one of the platoons I chose. I chose according to their requests. I send to the Forward Ops positions that do not have immediate access to a base or PX. You can tell how in need these guys are when all they ask for are warm socks and thermals. I will continue to send packages until everyone is back home. God Bless America and God Bless our Soldiers!

This has been the best avenue to support our troops. I've been sending care packages to all services since Nov 2004. It's the best way to reach out to our military guys and gals living in tough conditions in Iraq (B4) and Afghanistan now. I hear occasionally from them and it makes my day. They are the greatest and it's the least I can do for their service to this country!

I have been sending CARE packages through the anysoldier site for about 5 years now. I started out with general toiletries etc and responding to special needs. I found a niche with recording TV shows and so far, that's worked pretty swell. I get a kick out of thinking about the folks opening an envelop and seeing a whole season of American Idol! I've also made some good friends from this site...sometimes we stay in touch after they are finished with their deployment, sometimes after they get out of the service. I'm just packing up some Christmas stockings...kind of a pun....I got some Army socks on eBay and stuffed them with snacks, secured them with red velcro ties and a candy cane. I think every little bit of that be will be used.

My husband is home after 3 deployments and we're acutely aware of how lucky we are to have him back... and what it means for the other guys and gals still out there.

Every few months, we send a box of goodies to the troops and the Afghan people as a reminder of our blessings. Anysoldier.com has put us in contact with great soldiers in remote regions who truly need your support. What an awesome program! :)

I've done a lot of charity work, but none has fulfilled me like 'Anysoldier.com'. These men are on the front lines, seeing their friends killed or injured; even committing suicide. They need to know that we have not forgotten them. This website is extremely organized and informative; it contains all the information you need to donate to this cause. I have made lasting friends through this program. They are so appreciative of anything and everything I send. I hope my letters have brought them some sunshine.

I had started using anysoldier after watching the christmas card movie. It is very informative and fairly easy to use. Addresses are good, and the ones that have time respond and seem very happy to get stuff from home. Good outreach site for our troops,and alot better than other similar sites.
