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!

Options for Christmas Cards

Last year, we collected Christmas cards for the troops. However, WE WILL NOT BE COLLECTING THEM THIS YEAR.

We know many enjoyed doing this and we were excited to collect more than 27 flat rate boxes last year.

So, if you are wanting to send cards this year, I would suggest you do a search online or even through Facebook. Two options did pop up, but we did not look at the programs in depth. A reminder is to always check the program out to make sure it is what you are looking for when sending cards to our troops. And, pay attention to deadlines from that organization.

We appreciate your continued support to our troops and being a part of AAUSS.

Yes, we are turning a year older and still growing strong. We thank our many supporters from around the United States and world for helping to share funny stories, their daily lives and care packages with our deployed troops.

We thank our service members for EVERYTHING. The sacrifices they give each day home or deployed.
