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!!
Friday, February 5th is Adopt A Us Soldier’s 11th Birthday! It has been an incredible ride. Thank you to all the wonderful supporters, ambassadors, volunteers, and of course soldiers that have made this program great. So in celebration here are some photographs of some of the soldiers that have been supported by this program and comments from soldiers as well!
I have had nothing but great experiences with your organization. Every time I deploy I sign up and every time I never have anything to complain about. The people that I get to meet are so nice and so supportive. They not only help me but send things for my guys that are out here with me. I would like to thank you guys for all that you do to support the soldiers that are out here.
Omg they are all great. All my support has been great, my soldiers and my self are happy, your guys have a great program, and all of you are blessed and love you guys in every way. Thank you for everything. I can’t say it enough.
This program is awesome! I appreciate all of the people that show their support to us by sending letters or emails or packages or whatever it may be. I appreciate all of it! There is one supporter that has written me many letters but it’s hard for me to get to a post office or anything like that to send actual written letters instead of emails.Many of the guys I work with do the same program and they love it as well. Thank you so much again!
I just would like to say that the Adopt a Soldier program has well exceeded my expectations and I must say I am a bit overwhelmed with the turnout of packages I get lol. It’s great to know that there are still kind and generous people in the world considering the state of the world these days. I’m a platoon sergeant over here and I let all my soldiers know to take advantage of this grand opportunity to interact with some of you kind people. I would just like to extend my deepest appreciation for all that you do. Happy holidays and may God bless you.
My supporters are amazing and couldn’t ask for anyone better. I really appreciate everything you guys do thank you so much. It helps so much and makes me happy that people care this much for what I do. I hope you had a great holiday!
All my supporters are doing amazing. Thank you so much. They are helping me get through the holiday season and this deployment with a smile on. All of my supporters are supper supportive. I had no idea how big this program was till I received a letter from a mother with four kids in England. My fellow deployers already have support (we pass good things around fast) signed up. Thanks a lot.
My supporters are great, and we get along great. A lot of them are my age so we have things in common and there’s a lot to talk about. They are all very nice and constantly email me and check up on me. Thank you for the organization you represent. It truly is a great organization that definitely helps moral through the troops!
Thank you for contacting me and for all the hard work you do for our Troops. So far, my supporters have been phenomenal. I regularly get emails and letters from them and they have gone above and beyond with care packages. It is incredible that people who have never met me put so much time and effort into ensuring that I have everything I need. I could not have asked for better supporters! I have shared the flyer with my Troops. Thank you again for all that you and AAUSS do for our country!
Thank you for all the support and the support from the volunteers is amazing! The supporters are very helpful and willing to assist me any way they can. The AAUSS truly brings smiles to everyone’s face out here. We have a few in my unit who are enrolled but I will spread the flyer so other troops can participate as well. Thank you very much for all you do. I hope you have a great New Year’s!
Thank you for checking up on me Debbie. I am definitely getting the support I need. It’s definitely made me feel a lot closer to home than I really am. It’s made things a lot easier too because I missed Thanksgiving, my birthday, this upcoming Christmas and New Year for the first time. I’ve also been living out of my sleeping bag for 2 months and one of the adopt a soldier volunteers gave me a blanket . It’s really helped. Thank you
As we spend our day thankful for the many friends and family, take time to thank the ones who are not home this year with theirs. Here is a post from last year and just some of the faces Adopt a US Soldier has supported.
Thank you to our military and their families for all the sacrifices they make each and every day.
We want to welcome everyone to our AAUSS family and supporting our troops deployed. Over the last two weeks, we have had a SURGE in supporters especially to meet the holiday mailing deadlines.
However, we must report that at this time, it will be on average about 3 weeks from current signups(now or in the recent past) to receive a service members name due to this surge. We appreciate your patience and understanding as our volunteer staff works through this busy season to meet this demand while enjoying time with their families.
Please make sure you signed up for the correct program. If you did not want a long term adoption, please send us an email to fix this.
1) Long term adoptions: You agree to send letters every week for the next 6 to 12 months while your service member is deployed. This program is not just for the holidays!
2) Project Frontlines: This is for the one time or holiday cards/packages.
Each program is a different registration and you can register for both.
Thank you again for supporting our troops and patience as there are so MANY that want to show their gratitude and support to our deployed troops.
We would like to wish everyone serving today or in the past a wonderful Veterans Day! We honor and appreciate the sacrifices you make each day! Take a moment to list to Jeff Batson’s song, March On. We have paired up with Jeff to spread the word about AAUSS.
