Welcome to Adopt A US Soldier

Adopt A US Soldier is a non-profit organization that seeks volunteers to help show the brave men and women fighting for our freedom that their sacrifices will not go unnoticed. It connects supportive civilians with deployed troops and offers a channel by which to communicate encouragement and express gratitude to those brave men and women serving in the United States Armed Forces.


Staffed fully by volunteers, AAUSS has helped thousands of soldiers find friendship, support, and a much loved and needed touch of home.

Adopt A US Soldier is active in over 170+ countries/ territories/ independent states with over 1,000,000 active volunteers supporting our troops by adopting a soldier. It is very easy to do and more rewarding than you can imagine, and you will show a soldier that you support them and cherish your freedom. We ask that you send your soldier a weekly letter or postcard for long term adoption because a letter is like a hug from home!!

                                                          Your support makes a difference!

A Word from our Troops!

“Good Morning,

My sponsors are great. I am very busy with my missions. However when I get the time to be back in the office they’re always there to check in on me. That really puts a smile on your face. It’s like when you’ve had a hard day at work in the states and you can go home and tell your family how your day was. They’re my family.”


“It’s hard being away from home and my kids but it’s great to know that people do care about us out here. I’ve talked to a lot of my shipmates and got them to sign up as well. I know we’re not boots on the
ground but months at sea is a beast all on its own and this has helped out a lot. Thank You!!”

I really appreciate your time and efforts with the Adopt a Soldier program.  It has been great.  I don’t know why I even signed up other than one of my co-workers told me about it.  I had several people reach out to me, but I just can’t keep up with them.  There are actually too many and I feel really bad about not getting back to them yet.  I am very busy and just don’t have enough hours in the day to maintain communication with all that reached out to me.  I am thankful for the all of their responses and hope that your organization can impress upon them that we are busy over here, but greatly appreciate their kindness and support.

Thank you.

Wishing Everyone a Wonderful and Safe 4th of July

We want to wish everyone a wonderful and safe 4th of July. Remember why we have this day and those that fight to keep it that way!

New or checking out Adopt a US Soldier?

We have two programs. Both are found under the “adopt a soldier” tab. You can adopt a soldier throughout their deployment or you can sign up for Project Frontlines which is a short term or one drop to a unit in need.

If you have questions, check out our FAQS. After you register, you can access our “forums” to see many pinned topics to help with supporting our troops.

A reminder of just how precious a letter is

As much as I love technology and emails it is still nice to receive letters via snail mail.  The progam really does make a difference to many ...

“As much as I love technology and emails it is still nice to receive letters via snail mail. My friend also sign up and he has been talking with a few people. He really didn’t have anyone that would send him stuff before but now he is getting more then I think he knows what to do with. I have seen first hand how amazing the adoption program is. I have been talking with my wife and I think that once I am back we are going to sign up and get a few soldiers ourself. The progam really does make a difference to many of these guys. I just feel like I have to give back now that I have received.”
