Sign Up to Adopt A US Soldier

Adopt A US Soldier allows you to show your support for our deployed troops.
You can choose to Adopt A US Soldier by sending a weekly letter or post card and optional care package to a single soldier for the duration of their deployment OR register through Project Frontlines for a one time donation to a unit.

Your support makes a huge difference to the soldiers who will appreciate your support more than you could ever know.

You can now choose two different ways to support the deployed troops through Adopt A US Soldier.  You can adopt an individual military troop member and support him or her through sending weekly letters/cards, and optional care packages to your soldier for the length of their deployment, OR you can sign up for Project Frontlines for a one-time or short-term support only.  Both programs will help you show your support for deployed troops that will appreciate your support more than you can imagine.
