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!!
As we spend our day thankful for the many friends and family, take time to thank the ones who are not home this year with theirs. Here is a post from last year and just some of the faces Adopt a US Soldier has supported.
Thank you to our military and their families for all the sacrifices they make each and every day.
We want to welcome everyone to our AAUSS family and supporting our troops deployed. Over the last two weeks, we have had a SURGE in supporters especially to meet the holiday mailing deadlines.
However, we must report that at this time, it will be on average about 3 weeks from current signups(now or in the recent past) to receive a service members name due to this surge. We appreciate your patience and understanding as our volunteer staff works through this busy season to meet this demand while enjoying time with their families.
Please make sure you signed up for the correct program. If you did not want a long term adoption, please send us an email to fix this.
1) Long term adoptions: You agree to send letters every week for the next 6 to 12 months while your service member is deployed. This program is not just for the holidays!
2) Project Frontlines: This is for the one time or holiday cards/packages.
Each program is a different registration and you can register for both.
Thank you again for supporting our troops and patience as there are so MANY that want to show their gratitude and support to our deployed troops.
We would like to wish everyone serving today or in the past a wonderful Veterans Day! We honor and appreciate the sacrifices you make each day! Take a moment to list to Jeff Batson’s song, March On. We have paired up with Jeff to spread the word about AAUSS.
If you have recently registered or about to, please understand we have had a SURGE and we mean a SURGE in new supporters registering which means 200 to 300 per day. Although we have seen an increase in the number of service members registering, it may take up to 3 weeks to get your service members information.
We do understand their is a postal deadline and are adopting out as quickly as our service members voluntarily register.
Please remember that a long term adoption is a commitment of 6 to 9 months with weekly letters to your service member.
We do NOT guarantee you will hear from your service member but we ask you to support them throughout their entire deployment.
If you have a service member with us or know of anyone deployed, please ask them to have others deployed register with us so we can meet this surge of supporters.
Please know that our volunteer staff is working hard and be kind when emailing them as they are work extremely hard during this time.
Thank you for your interest in adopting a service member!
