  1. All great sites warriors-However, if yo haven’t checked into AnySoldier I can tell you first hand they rock. They have generously support all of my Marines during my 5 deployments to Iraq/Afg. That send a powerful message. They are serious!!
    It was March 26th, 2003. Army Sergeant Brian Horn, one of 1,000 soldiers, parachuted into enemy territory in Northern Iraq.
    Five months later, Brian Horn was able to call his parents. Marty and Sue Horn had been sending their son an average of six care packages per week. So when Brian asked his parents to send more, “my wife and I thought he was kidding!” Marty Horn told me. “But Brian said, ‘no — its for the soldiers that don’t get any.'”
    Brian Horn’s regiment spent nearly a year finding places to sleep on the ground or on their vehicles while behind enemy lines in Northern Iraq. From Life in Iraq, Stars and Stripes special report on morale. October, 2003, Jon R. Anderson, Stars and Stripes

    Both Marty and Sue Horn had spent their careers in the Military, so they immediately understood what Brian was saying. Millions of men and women serving overseas never receive any mail. Besides often lacking basic necessities, these men and women have to cope with the harsh conditions of serving overseas without signs of support from friends and family back home.
    The Horns developed the idea for AnySoldier.com during that phone call. Marty created a website that explained the project and offered Brian’s address — including the words “Attn: Any Soldier”. Brian would give these packages to the soldiers not receiving any mail. After his service in the Military, Marty had gotten involved in the still-young Internet. He knew how much opportunity the Internet offered, but even he was amazed at the results. “Within two weeks, we were getting flooded with email from all over the world. It was like an avalanche.”
    The project’s growth kept up its tremendous pace. In January 2004, in response to many requests, the Horns opened up the project to the other Military branches. Within one year, they went from seven Military contacts distributing “Any Soldier” packages to 3,500.
    “It just exploded. It literally took on a life of its own… Honestly, we started this as a way to help my son and his troops. Imagine camping — it’s hard enough to get stuff, imagine being one in a thousand guys who parachuted behind enemy lines,” Marty said.
    The growth has continued. To date, AnySoldier.com — and its related websites, AnyMarine, AnyAirman, AnySailor, and AnyCoastGuardsman — have served over 1.9 million troops stationed in 22 locations (Current info HERE). The men and women in service come from 51 states and countries — the vast majority from the USA, but also from such places as England, Italy, Germany, and Japan. Visitors to AnySoldier.com can search for contacts by service location, where the unit comes from, the number of males or females in the group (some supporters prefer to write to “Attn: Any Female Soldier”), and the number of times their address has been requested — among other options.
    The response has overwhelmed the recipients, as well. AnySoldier updates from the men and women in service express gratitude, joy and awe at the support they receive. Unit leaders, in particular, write about the contribution AnySoldier makes to their troops

  2. I’m betting no matter what way we choose to support our Warriors I’m betting all of us want to do more and believe in our hearts we could never give back to them what they and their famlies have given up for us. Nope. Not ever.

  3. proves that a politician-maker may do much to degrade society and remain in high favor with his friends of the bench of justice. On one side of the dungeon-like place stands a rickety old counter, behind which three savage-faced men stand, filling and serving incessant potions of deleterious liquor to the miserable beings, haggard and ragged, crowding to be first served. Behind the bar, or counter, rises a pyramid of

  4. they plan to win! More than a dozen Democrats who lost by thin margins in 2010 are looking for a rematch. They know that 2010 was lightning in a bottle for the Tea Party and the Republicans – and they will never repeat that again. The Tea Party failure, the Republican impotence, has been on display for a year.

  5. Back in 2007 I sent a few care packages I personally made to some of our troops. Online I requested names of a few in need of care packages. I don’t remember how I found the Site. Is there any way to do that now? My daughter is 6yrs old and I would like to make them with her and have her write letters.

  6. I sincerely believe that I am not wanted on the
    AnySoldier site, because they will not give me the
    requested addresses. Now, my comments have been
    removed from this site.
    AnySoldier has no trouble cashing my check, though.

  7. Anne-If AnySoldier blocked you its probably because you were requesting several addresses (like spammers do). Your comments have never been deleted from this site.Have you simply emailed & contacted AnySoldier about the issue? My guess is you havent.

  8. Maj Pain:
    For close to a month I tried to find out why their
    site would say the address was sent to my e-mail
    and nothing showed up. Not one response to my almost daily questioning. I know the rules about asking for more than two. Being 81 years old, I can’t handle more than two at a time. I have two
    boxes of hand warmers and fleese hoodies asked for
    by a Hero who cares deeply about his men suffering
    in the coming winter.
    Aother set of boxes are for a Medic who asked for
    fabric to make quilts for our beloved wounded.
    Both of these warriors are a Godsend since I am in
    the process of clearing out my possessions, thus
    sparing my family the (maybe painful) task of
    dealing with them.
    In re-reading my remarks, I fully undestand how
    harsh them were. Blame it on the French-Irish in
    me.
    I promise I will go away if I can get addesses for
    Adam B. Davis and Glenda Hedstrom. I will not ask
    for any more.
    Thank you.
