The City of Atlanta Department of Watershed Management sent 3 large care packages to a group of 33 soldiers after signing up with Project Frontlines over the holidays. They all pitched in (even the sales clerk at the store they purchased the items from) and were able to send stationary, pens, personal hygiene items, food, and more. They are already working on a game plan for the next time the adopt from Project Frontlines. We would like to give a huge thank you to The City of Atlanta Department of Watershed Management along with Commissioner Kishia Powell and Communications Director Lillian Govus for their support and the smiles they brought to their soldiers faces.

Happy 12th Anniversary to 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.
Our mission: To honor active US military personnel, Adopt A US Soldier is a 501c3 volunteer-based organization that connects supportive civilians with deployed troops and offers a channel by which to communicate encouragement and express gratitude to the brave men and women serving our nation and the world.
Finally, we thank our donors who allow us to send additional items such as board games, sporting equipment, healthy snacks, hygiene items, reading items and much more.
Enjoy some words from our troops and thank you for helping AAUSS continue to grow!
“Well I think you all have the best military support known. I wish more soldiers knew about the program. My group just got out of the field a couple days ago and with my profession I couldn’t tell my sponsors. But its okay. I know someone is there for me. I can’t disclose my location but we’re always ready and i use my supporters fuel as motivation. Thank you all and for all you give!!!”
“Everything is doing good they are all helpful of keeping my motivation up and you guys and theirs support help us a lot being away to our family.. Thank you guys for your support”
“sorry if I haven’t responded lately we have been moving around from different bases and some of them have lil or no internet access. I have had support from the people with things they have sent me for moral and I would like to say thanks a lot from the bottom of my heart”
“Thank you all for your support, as far as feed back on the support it has been amazing. the supporters that were assigned have written letters and sent packages with more than we could ever expect in them. This has been an amazing experience.”
Yes I have been receiving a few packages, I haven’t had time to write to anyone about receiving anyone’s yet. I’m sorry for that, but everything that I have received I have split between parts of the platoon. The platoon and myself could not thank everyone enough for everything everyone is doing, if you could be able to relay to them everything I am greatly appreciative. Like I said I’m sorry I haven’t had to to email them, days have been long and will be long for quite some time.”

Everything is going well, thank you so much for checking in. I’m keeping in touch regularly with everyone and they have all become great friends already, some that will be around my entire life I’m sure. The support is great, the friendship is better, it’s made for a great experience. Thank you and your team for this support system, it’s kept spirits up around my entire unit and has made deployment easier.
You have sent me some wonderful supporters. Each one has helped me along my way and knowing someone cares at home means a lot. From one supporter I am learning German, another supporter keeps me up to date on the news at home, and my third supporter checks in on me to make sure I am doing well. It really means a lot, and thanks for everything you, Adopt a US Soldier, and volunteers have done/are doing.
I would just like to say thank you for all your support that you have been providing me! The support that you have given me has truly been a blessing. I didn’t really think that you could grow to love someone that you have never met before, but I had a sudden change of mind as soon I started talking to them. Their words of encouragement are very thoughtful and the fact that they show me love is amazing.
Everything is fine, been getting great support from the adopters. They have helped lift my spirits with great gifts and conversation! Thank you again for everything.
Everyone who has been assigned to me has been great. I feel bad because I’m in the middle of studying for my upgraded training and I’m super busy so I have not been able to get back to some of them.
Everything is going great with my supporters. They do a great job of keeping in contact with me and making sure I have what I need. I appreciate you taking the time to check!
Thanks for your correspondence. I am very delighted with the supporters that I have encountered. The patriotism of our country is amazing. I love the range of different people that were assigned to me. They have definitely boosted my morale. Thank you again for your amazing work
They are all amazing people and I appreciate every email as well as package I receive from them. These people remind me of home and remind how much they appreciate what I do and it makes it worth it in my eyes. I love this company and what they do and i wish more people were like those who volunteer as well as those who founded the organization. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO
I have had great support from my sponsors! I have even received two care packages. I had American flags flown in an F-22 Raptor in a combat mission to send back to them as thanks. Thank you for this amazing program!
It has been a wonderful experience so far and I would like to thank all of the supporters and to the staff as well.
First let me say thank you all for what you do and thank you so very much for your support. What a great program you have for us service members and just knowing that you have such a great team of volunteers willing to give of their time for us. I sometimes feel that you all are doing more for us than we are for you.
I have had wonderful support from your team of volunteers and currently have 3 supporters writing letters to me. I do want to say that they have been fantastic. I feel kind of bad in that I’m not a big letter writing kind of guy and am doing my best to return letters back to them as time permits. I do very much enjoy reading their letters and will continue to do my best to respond as soon as I can to them.
As the end of the year approaches, we want to thank our many donors for their donation either through Paypal or to our mailing address. We have been able to send many packages to our troops overseas which included hygiene, snacks, coffee, gaming systems, board games and sporting equipment. Without your support, we would not have been able to provide these items.
