Soldiers Letters to Home and Volunteers Letters Back
Adopt A US Soldier receives hundreds of letters of praise and thanks from both our deployed troops and our supportive volunteer citizens. These testimonials help to show how much good a kind word, a supporting letter, or a special project to honor our troops can actually do.
Here you’ll find actual letters written to Adopt A US Soldier and its volunteers describing exactly how much difference just a supportive letter, or a care package from home can make in the life of a soldier. You will also read touching stories by the volunteers of Adopt A US Soldier detailing how positive the experience of adopting their own soldier has been.
It’s time to share some happy words from our troops about how great you are all doing. As you know, you may or may NOT hear from your service member, but it is always important to keep sending letters through the mail. If you can send packages, great but it is not required. We check in with our troops every so often and we do not always hear back, but from the ones we do, THANK YOU everyone for what you do. Your words of encouragement and gratitude do make a difference.
“So far I have met three wonderful and friendly adopters who have
provided me with everything I could’ve asked for, and more. The program is amazing, and It’s truly a blessing for soldiers who may be experiencing a difficult time on deployment. I, along with many of my colleagues are grateful for the program, and support it 100%.”
“My supporters have been great! I’m very appreciative with the letters I’ve been receiving. It’s people like them that keep me going and keep me motivated Thank you so much.”
“We have been emailing back and forth. I understand that it takes some time for packages to get here. So far I have gotten one and it was amazing. I did not ask for much but she sent way more than what was asked for. Lots of necessities that I needed a lot more than I thought.I have told many other soldiers about the program and even gotten a couple of people to sign up as well.I appreciate everything so far, thank you so much for your continuous support.”
“Ma’am, it is going great! My supporters are great and I am receive the support I need. I have nothing but positive things to say about my supporters and the program. Thanks for the support!”
“Thank you so much for all you do, we all out here love you, sorry its a little harder for us infantrymen to find time in our schedule to reply back as often as we like, but you find time to make sure we are taken care of out here. thank you again we all love you and what you do.”
“The supporters I have are absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much. They have really made this deployment an infinitely better experience.”
“Hello, thanks for writing. I want to thank you all for all your support and for what you do for us, this is an amazing thing you guys are doing. I have soldiers that do not get a single letter in the mail including myself, and it is so nice and uplifting to receive something from someone that cares. Thank you so much again. I have shared the website with my soldiers and they also liking it a lot. I think this is a great program and want to thank you again for all your support.”
“I know all the soldiers in my section truly appreciate the outpouring of support we have received during the past few weeks. It is great to know there are kind people out there willing to assist in anyway they can.”
“I have received so much support from my adopter! Thank you for
connecting the two of us. She has made my deployment so much more enjoyable. As a single Airman, I receive little mail from family so it is really nice to have someone care so much that I am out here and send loving messages and goodies. Thanks again!”
This program is awesome! I appreciate all of the people that show their support to us by sending letters or emails or packages or whatever it may be. I appreciate all of it! There is one supporter that has written me many letters but it’s hard for me to get to a post office or anything like that to send actual written letters instead of emails.Many of the guys I work with do the same program and they love it as well. Thank you so much again!
I just would like to say that the Adopt a Soldier program has well exceeded my expectations and I must say I am a bit overwhelmed with the turnout of packages I get lol. It’s great to know that there are still kind and generous people in the world considering the state of the world these days. I’m a platoon sergeant over here and I let all my soldiers know to take advantage of this grand opportunity to interact with some of you kind people. I would just like to extend my deepest appreciation for all that you do. Happy holidays and may God bless you.
My supporters are amazing and couldn’t ask for anyone better. I really appreciate everything you guys do thank you so much. It helps so much and makes me happy that people care this much for what I do. I hope you had a great holiday!
All my supporters are doing amazing. Thank you so much. They are helping me get through the holiday season and this deployment with a smile on. All of my supporters are supper supportive. I had no idea how big this program was till I received a letter from a mother with four kids in England. My fellow deployers already have support (we pass good things around fast) signed up. Thanks a lot.
My supporters are great, and we get along great. A lot of them are my age so we have things in common and there’s a lot to talk about. They are all very nice and constantly email me and check up on me. Thank you for the organization you represent. It truly is a great organization that definitely helps moral through the troops!
Thank you for contacting me and for all the hard work you do for our Troops. So far, my supporters have been phenomenal. I regularly get emails and letters from them and they have gone above and beyond with care packages. It is incredible that people who have never met me put so much time and effort into ensuring that I have everything I need. I could not have asked for better supporters! I have shared the flyer with my Troops. Thank you again for all that you and AAUSS do for our country!
Thank you for all the support and the support from the volunteers is amazing! The supporters are very helpful and willing to assist me any way they can. The AAUSS truly brings smiles to everyone’s face out here. We have a few in my unit who are enrolled but I will spread the flyer so other troops can participate as well. Thank you very much for all you do. I hope you have a great New Year’s!
Thank you for checking up on me Debbie. I am definitely getting the support I need. It’s definitely made me feel a lot closer to home than I really am. It’s made things a lot easier too because I missed Thanksgiving, my birthday, this upcoming Christmas and New Year for the first time. I’ve also been living out of my sleeping bag for 2 months and one of the adopt a soldier volunteers gave me a blanket . It’s really helped. Thank you
Good day. My supporters are great. They all email me and tell me about their days and it takes my mind off of not being in the states. They are always asking how I am doing and if I need anything. They are more than just supporters they are friends. Thank you for pairing me up with them.
Thank you for your support and my supporters are amazing and regularly communicate with me. They are caring and share wonderful stories of back home that greatly increase my moral. Again Thank You and I will gladly pass along the flyer. v/r David
The adopt a soldier program is great! I’ve been enjoying emailing back and forth with my supporters. They have been very kind, checking in on me and responding to my emails. A big thank you to all who are involved in the Adopt a Soldier Program. -Shane
Thank you and some have made contact and I will share and thank you guys for all y’all do for us soldiers.
I’ve been in contact with some great people stateside as well as overseas and they’ve really made it easy to take my mind off this deployment. I really appreciate everything they’re doing! I’ll be sure to pass the word around about AAUSS because I’m sure there are plenty of people out there who would like to sign up! Thanks again, Peter
Everything has been incredible. Thank you so much for everything your organization does in support of the troops. I appreciate it ! V/r Lonnie
Everything with this program is great. I signed up for it with no expectations but I am definitely pleased with the support that the program gives to us soldiers. It is greatly appreciated on my end for sure.
Hello. Yes everything has been going fine. The families are really nice and love what they do, great supporters
I have a few supporters and they are ALL wonderful. I get e-mail and care packages and cards all the time overflowing with love. I have been very happy. I only wish I knew about this program sooner! I also had many of my friends sign up for it that are out here deployed with me. Thanks so much for caring for us! V/r, ABH3(SW) S
Just wanted to let you know that I’m getting the support I need and I really appreciate it! Some of the sponsors have been sending me goodies and things to keep me busy or make me laugh! Hearing from them is a blessing! Thank you for supporting us as well!
Thank you for checking up! Things have been wonderful and overwhelming! I cant thank those enough who have taken the time to show us support! We appreciate it more than words can explain!
Thank you again!
The AAUSS has done a lot for me thus far. I was first welcomed by Dani who has introduced me to a couple of loving families. She also pulled some strings to get myself and others a box of cards to play magic the gathering. I was also told she contacted my favorite sports team and they will be sending me a care package out here. I’ve requested to be in contact with as many children as possible that want to write soldiers. I have one class that will be writing soon once school starts and also a Sunday school class. I am fully supported out here and thanks again for your awesome organization.
You guys are indeed angels because u guys are doing an awesome job over there God bless u all in everything u guys do, you guys are very nice and helpful and I appreciate that. Thanks.
Your supporters have been amazing. Thank you for everything you have done. It has made my deployment much easier. I never knew so many people cared about us.
Hey there, thanks for the e-mail. I received one earlier but was just too busy to get to it. Things are going well and the supporters I was put in contact with have been very supportive. This program is wonderful and I have even referred many of my fellow soldiers to this sight as well. Thank you very much.
