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!

Happy Thanksgiving 2017

Happy Thanksgiving!
At Thanksgiving, we enjoy time with friends and family and think about the many things we are thankful for during this time of year. I want to take moment to say thank you to so many:

*Thank you to the volunteers of AAUSS who work full-time jobs and have families, but find the time each day to continue to answer emails, help with adoptions, assist with Facebook and forums and so much more.

* Thank you to our supporters for the support to our deployed troops overseas with letters and/or packages. In addition, we appreciate your patience and kindness during our busy times of the year like now. And, thank you, for the wonderful ideas you add to our page to help others.

* Most of all THANK YOU to our men and women in uniform. The sacrifices each hero makes including deployments ....a simple thank you does not say enough. We appreciate and support you!

I’d also like to share some thank you words from our troops! Have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!
AAUSS President

“I can’t say enough good things. Me and my people are overjoyed with the things you were gracious enough to send us.”

“Thank you to you and the family’s you set me up with. It was a great help to me getting through the deployment being away from my family and loved ones. It is great knowing there are so many wonderful people out there eagerly waiting and wanting to help service members.”

“Am thankful for this program and the people that make it come to life, I been in contact with two great supporters that write me often and cheers me up. I don’t reply as much as I want to do to some restraints here, but am happy always to receive mail from them. Thank you for this great service”

“I would like to thank you and the AAUSS program for adding an element of joy to my deployment. Two of my “adopters” stay in regular contact with me and have sent/or are sending me a care package. It has been a great opportunity for me to engage with citizens who are passionate about assisting service members. In addition to what they send, I enjoy reading their emails and making new connections.”

“Everything is going great because yall keep giving people who really care and makes this deployment a lot better. Thank you.”

“Thank you so much for your volunteers who have been sending me/us care packages. They have been right on time & just what I/we needed!”

Only a Few More Days to Get Your Cards to Us

Back in October, we presented, for the first time, to send cards to us to get them overseas. Our mailbox is full every day and often we are given two more large PO boxes to fit all your cards.

One day, I went to the post office and a hand reached through the box with another key! Totally caught me off guard. Talk about your heart racing!
Today’s visit, I had to have another post office customer help me carry all your cards to my car!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for brightening the holidays for our troops overseas.

Here is the information to get your holiday cards to us by NOVEMBER 30!

1) Fill out a card or several cards to any service member/hero.

2) You DO NOT have to address the envelopes and we prefer you don’t.

3) DO NOT put a stamp on every envelope or send stamps.

4) Mail one card or a box of holiday cards to us at

Adopt a US Soldier
PO Box 630887
Highlands Ranch CO 80163

5) Get them in the mail as soon as possible so they meet our deadline of November 30. We cannot guarantee after that date that your cards will be received or sent overseas.

6) If you want to send cards overseas after this deadline, you will have to register to receive a name.

Thank you again for all your well wishes to our troops overseas! A handwritten note goes a long way for our troops each day.
