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!

Do You Have Holiday Cards for Our Troops?

This is the first year that Adopt a US Soldier will be collecting your holiday cards for our troops.  This is only if you do not want to send the holiday cards overseas yourself.

If you wish to send packages or other stuff, you MUST register for our program and send it to the person or contact person assigned to you.

Here are the rules:

1) Write a card or several cards like you do to your family and friends during the holidays. Include kind words for the holidays and supportive messages.

2) Do not seal the cards.  Do not put a stamp on each one. Do not address them. Just put them all in one package or envelope.

3) Send all cards with appropriate postage to the address below. Any boxes without the proper postage will be returned so it is important to make sure the USPS weighs your package and affixes this postage.

Adopt a US Soldier
PO Box 630887
Highlands Ranch, CO 80163

4) All packages of cards should be received by November 30. Any packages received after November 30th will not be sent overseas and possibly returned.

We would suggest that you send all packages of cards by November 20th to make sure they reach us by November 30th.

If you wish to send cards after this time, you will need to register for our program and click on Project Frontlines.

Thank you for brightening the day of our troops during the holidays.
