Soldiers Testimony & Letters


A Word From Our Troops

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.

A Word From Our Troops

Thank you for taking the time to email me to check in! Me and everyone out here are doing well and I have gotten so many emails nda letters from people who are supporting us its amazing. Thank you for having such a great program for all of us deployed!

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

All of them are great. They keep me some what sane lol. I thank you for everything y’all do there.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Everything has been great so far. Sometimes I don’t have the internet access that I’d like, so it makes getting back in touch with you all difficult. I do appreciate what you all have done for me and it’s nice to know that we are appreciated. We don’t always get the appreciation that we need, even from our loved ones at home.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Our experience has been wonderful! Such helpful and caring volunteers.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

My sponsors are great. They stay in touch to see how I’m doing. They share great stories with me and I do the same. I have already helped two people sign up for adopt a soldier. They already got sponsors. Thank you for your support.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

I have received nothing but outstanding support from all of your volunteers that has been assigned to me. They have either emailed me or have sent me actual personal letters, which are great. I responded to all of their emails, and letters, except for one, in which I will be sending a response next week. I have been busy the
last couple of weeks due to our missions, but your supporters are great, in which I definitely extend my gratitude.

I will post your flyers in the common areas of our Soldiers. Thank you again for your assignment of support personnel and for me to be adopted by your supporters.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

I just received another package from my supporters today! We had a few missed emails due to my strict GOV work-related account, but I have corrected that by adding the supporters as contacts. Aside from that, it is great being able to communicate with people from all over the World. Them giving us a glimpse of their lives and the freedoms we are protecting is really an eye-opener to several of my co-workers! It is a tremendous honor to serve our great Nation! For everything you ALL do in support of us, THANK YOU!

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Apologies if I am just now responding to your email, it’s been crazy busy these past few days. My supporter is great! I have received a wonderful package, I do appreciate y’all so much. You and your team who volunteer to do such great things to troops are just a blessing to all of us. We can’t thank y’all enough for all the things you do for us. We appreciate you greatly!

Again, thank y’all so much for the support. The things y’all do make our deployment bearable, knowing that there are people who support and appreciate us troops.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

I would like to say on behalf of the seabee units, thank you. It is nice to hear from volunteers and see their support. It is my first deployment and did not expect to receive all these items. It is a morale booster to see that people care about us and makes our lives easier when we can get things like soap, toothpaste, snacks, etc in environments where we do not have access to a store. From all of us, thank you.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

In reply to your email, the supporters are doing an outstanding job of supporting me and other service members here in Afghanistan. I personally have been getting emails and care packages in which I have been distributing out to the Soldiers here.
From our Command and especially myself, I thank all of the volunteer supporters for their thoughtfulness and gratitude. Thank you and your organization also for your time and consideration.

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.

A Word From Our Troops

Wednesday, October 26th is the National Day of the Deployed.  This day is to honor all those that have been and are currently deployed including their families and loved ones. Here at AAUSS we do everything we can to help make their deployment a little easier on them.  Below are some comments from our troops that we have been honored to support throughout their deployment. 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The supporters are great, I received a box .... and she sent me even more than I could ask for. She’s a great lady and very nice. I received an email from my other supporter saying they are putting a box together to send over here. I really appreciate everything that you all do for the troops around the world, it doesn’t go unnoticed. I will also be sure to share the flyer so others can receive the support I’ve gotten so far. Thank you again.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Your organization is great and I have received several letters and care packages. Unfortunately I do not have envelopes to send replies and give your people my sincerest thank you. Our internet connectivity is very bad out here. Also it is terrible that I am not available often. I really appreciate the letters and care packages and I share them with my soldiers. They really appreciate them also. Please get this message to your folks as I do not want them to think that i don’t appreciate their efforts and donations. Please continue to do what you guys do for our soldiers who are deployed in harms way and show them they are not forgotten. Thank you again.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Sorry I’m so late in responding. I have been a bit busy the past week. I’m happy to say that all of my supporters are very friendly and I’m really happy that I’m getting to know them. Thank you very much for providing us soldiers with a support system like this! People like you make Deployments much easier on us.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

I have had a wonderful experience with all of the sponsors, they are very kind and are great people. I honestly have nothing negative to say about them at all! Very caring and kind! I was really nervous to do this…something about asking people they never met before to send stuff here made me nervous but the squashed that nervousness and I feel like I’m talking to a family member!

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

I think the program is amazing and everyone is so kind and help me get through the day! It’s so amazing that people are willing to help soldiers out.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

The supporters are amazing and i appreciate everything they do. Thank you so much for an amazing organization

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

I must extend our sincere thank you for everything that you have done for us. You truly lifted our spirits and you were a constant reminder that there are people that care for us and believe in what we continue to do over here.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Great program all the supporters with this program are very nice and giving. I really appreciate the letters it’s really a morale booster.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

My experience with AAUSS and the supporters assigned to me has been amazing! I’ve gotten emails from 4 or 5 different amazing people with so much love & care. Several of them have offered to send me care packages and they keep me updated on recent events and such. I’ve told many of my shipmates about this program and already a few have signed up.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Everything has been well with the supporters. They have been really nice and I’ve talked to more than one. They’re super nice and encouraging. I’m really enjoying having someone to talk to and learn about them.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Greetings, so far everything has been great! I have been keeping busy trying to write everyone emails and letters thanking them for the support they have given us, and of course I have to do a little work every now and again… we help plenty others with our care packages!

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

The supporters you assigned me are great, we have so many great talks. It really brightens my day when I see that I have an e-mail waiting for me from one of them. Thanks for the support.

****A Few Words From Our Troops***

We have gotten some great feedback this month - thank you to all of our supporters for the awesome job you are doing supporting these guys and ladies!!!!

***************************************************
“I must say that the support has been incredible. It is such a surreal feeling receiving a package from someone back home and reading their letters and pictures they send, all the love and support. It really makes the guys here just feel different. We are trying to get a photo together so we can send it but it has been rather difficult since our mission times vary but I promise we’ll get you one! The supporters have been nothing but awesome. They have written and have shared their pictures. They truly are wonderful persons. I must thank you for everything you have done for us. I know my guys are really appreciative of everything they have done. You can see it on their faces when they get a letter or a package.”
