I joined Soldiers' Angels in memory of my son who died in 2009 at the age of 12. He was a huge supporter of our troops despite not growing up in a military family. When looking for an organization to devote time to, there were many, SA stood out above all others because of their vast opportunities and sense of community. The system is easy to use and there is always someone willing to answer a question if something comes up. The closed Facebook groups are a great resource as well. I have been fortunate to receive many replies from service members and they show so much appreciation for all the volunteers.
I'm forever grateful that I found Soldiers' Angels in 2007. I'm on 3 teams and it gives me a chance to do something for our active duty men and women and veterans, which means I'm doing something for my country. I'm from a military family that goes back to the American Revolution and that means the world to me.
Soldiers' Angels is a wonderful group that is totally non-profit and cares so much about our Veterans; deployed and all military families. I am part of the Letter Writing Team and I write letters to our deployed men and women of the armed forces. I appreciate all that our military does for us to keep us safe & free and this one way I can give back to them! It's totally a volunteer position and I love it! This organization really cares and I will keep supporting it!
Soldiers' Angels is such a great organization. I am able to support my country and our great soldiers while at the same time work with great people, be creative, and practice writing and communication skills. The organization supports our troops and we all support each other. You can just step right in and get going making a difference right away like I did.
I am so glad to be a part of this organization! I love writing and feel I can truly make a difference with my letters. It's so beneficial knowing that I'm bringing a smile to those who are fighting for our country!
I joined the Letter writing team through Soldiers' Angels back in April and fell in love with the whole idea of writing. Being an English major, I've always had a passion for writing but I've become more accustomed to writing to strangers. Every time I receive mail, I have a smile on my face, especially when soldiers tell me how much they laughed at my letter writing.
I now am a Group Leader of the Letter Writing Team and couldn't be more proud! I hope to encourage new people to write and to make letter writing a hobby again :)
I volunteer with this organization, and it is wonderful! I am so glad I found them. They do tremendous work for veterans I am always amazed. Please consider joining them.
I am a volunteer with Soldiers Angels and am on multiple teams. I retired from a career after 29 years and was looking for a way to work with veterans. I am so lucky to be able to volunteer at the VA hospital here in Denver Colorado. I am so lucky to have contact with veterans and it is so rewarding. I look forward to each time I am at the hospital or at an event.
My story is a little bit different, in that I have been a volunteer for Soldiers' Angels since 2006. We have shipped over 60,000 Christmas stockings to Iraq and Afghanistan. Now we are supporting the VA's in Georgia as well as working with Google to provide laptops to our brave soldiers that have been wounded. This picture was taken May 22 at Trinka Davis Veterans Village in Carrollton, GA. The award is a proclamation from our governor.

I have been with Soldier's Angels since 2006 and my favorite part about this organization is the direct contact we get with each service person we support. I have served on the "Deployed" Team since 2006 and earlier this year joined the "Letter Writing Team" in an effort to extend my gratitude to more Soldier's.
It's a great group and I am Thankful!
I've been adopting soldiers since 2011, and I enjoy it very much. SA's does so much for our service members and vets which makes me proud to be a part of this great organization.
