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

We have been receiving some wonderful comments from our soldiers about the support they are receiving from all of you.  We wanted to share so that you all know that you are making such a huge difference in their lives.

Sorry for the brevity but my down time is rare and I usually use it to sleep. I want to thank you for providing this service. It is truly remarkable to have strangers back home reach out and give us some cold comforts from home. Connecting people like that to us out here is truly a great cause and I have had nothing but great experiences so far. Thank you for what you do and who you are.


The supporters that I have are great. They constantly reach out to me and ask if there is anything I need. They said they sent me some packages. Our mail system has been jacked up out here and I have not received the packages yet. I feel bad at times because lately I have not had the capability to reach back out to them. But they are nice people and I appreciate them caring enough to take time out of their days to support myself and my fellow comrades.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to reach out, its greatly appreciated.


First I would like to say thank you all so much for all of the support. Everything with the sponsors that have emailed or mailed things out to me are great. I can absolutely say that they go above and out of their way to make sure they send exactly what I want and my favorite things. I have a few that have emailed me and they are just very easy to talk to, that person to talk to when you need it.


I just wanted to send you a short response about your program. It has been really great and the personalized support from each person is awesome. I’ve been blessed with some great supporters. I’ve received a few packages and I really enjoy the letters/emails. It’s nice to have someone to actively write with while we’re out here. Hand writing letters is almost like a lost art especially with social media. That’s why I really like this program and thank you very much for hosting it


Thank you for reaching out. I want to start off by saying thank you for all the support the guys and myself are getting. I get my letter every week and a few packages already. There isn’t a whole lot that I do need here. I’m a little used to it…it’s my 5th deployment. I just wanted to get all my guys signed up and show them how easy it really is and that there are people out there that care what we do. Keep up the great work….you guys have done so much for the uniformed services for years now and we thank you.


All those who have contacted me are awesome. I feel like I’ve made a few friends and I look forward to hearing from them. It’s less lonely. I want to thank you all for volunteering and making the lives of those of us out here less stressful.


You matched me up with some incredible people….The packages everyone sends light up my face and the guys in my unit love when I get packages from them because they know some goodies are in them. I’ve told everyone, actually our supervisor turned us all on to the idea, and some of the guys are part of this great AAUSS journey as well.
Thank you all so much for setting aside time to make sure we’re reminded of the joys of home. With technology how it is it’s still fairly easy to communicate to loved ones, but having complete strangers love and support you is just the icing on the cake. You, and your team are forever in our debt. We love you all.
