A day in the life of an American Soldier. The personal passages of everything from family life to war.

Anyone looking to adopt a Soldier?

American Soldier says,

A mother of a deployed soldier emailed me and wanted to see about getting her son fixed up with a soldier organization.

So email me if can truly do it.

UPDATE: I got alot of emails on this one, so hold down for the moment.

    I have been supporting our military since 2003 and am looking for a soldier or soldiers to write to. I am 45 and live on a farm in West Virginia. I am single and am currently writing my first novel. I also have a postcards for soldiers project and am looking for anyone who wants postcards, either blank or with messages of support. I will write to anyone who writes me.

  21. Jessica Says:

    I’m a military brat and would like to write someone over in iraq. I’m 19 and currently going to college. I am pretty good about responding to letters and writing them as well. Anyone who wants to write to me let me know.

  22. courtney Says:

    Jessica, there are many non-profit organizations out there that would be happy to connect you with fine Soldiers to write to. Below are three–a Google search will turn up more.

    Soldiers Angels http://soldiersangels.org/

    SA has a wide variety of teams to join (general letter writing, writing to those who have been wounded, etc.)

    Any Soldier http://anysoldier.com/
    You simply sign up online, flip through the profiles, and choose up to three addresses a day.

    I got this link from Red2Alpha’s blog, http://thisisyourwarii.blogspot.com/

    I’m part of Soldiers’ Angels and I love it. Members of SA say they “support” Soldiers, but honestly, it’s really Hero Worship. :)

  23. Kat in GA: A Soldiers' Angel Says:

    Jess & Sharon — check out www.SoldiersAngels.org - there are zillions of ways to get involved with writing to and/or adopting our Heroes over there! :)

  35. American Soldier Says:

    We shouldn’t be hearing from him anymore. I ‘virtually’ sent a 7.62mm round his way.

  36. Carrie Teele Says:

    I met a Great man in the Army many months ago. He left to go on tour and we remained in contact. I send him goodies ( cookies, candy,gum,ect.). We were on the internet together a few weeks ago and saying that he shares what he get’s in the mail with his platoon. As our conversation continued we thought about the other american soldiers who don’t really get much in the mail. So we came up with a project ” Adopt An American Soldier Project” I have created an email address for those who are interested in Adopting A Soldier. Any soldier who is on tour or will be leaving on tour may also email me. I will then set a soldier up with a family who is interested. I ask that you all remain in contact with each other puring the time of deployment. My friend Darrin will also keep me in touch with names of soldiers who are already over seas and is interested in having a new friend/family. Please send email to adopt an american soldier project @yahoo.com. Let’s all together keep our troop’s in our heart’s, prayer’s, mind’s for the hope’s of a safe return home. I have started this project in CT, and in hopes that it will go all over the great USA. If anybody is also interested in helping with this project please email me too. Your suport is greatly appreciated by me and many other people. email adopt an american soldier project @yahoo.com

  56. susan haas Says:

    to any soldiers that would like to write, or email me. please feel free to do so. you will probably get letters from my children and their friends too. for they are sympathetic to the war,and are wishing all of you get to come home soon. my children and their friends are between 16-22 years of age. i figure any young soldiers could write to them some one more their age to relate to,be friends with. i am 46. so any age for me. to talk with like a mother or friend. i will be looking forward to getting some mail from any of you. the more the better. sincerely, susan haas

  57. soldierswife Says:

    To the last 2 people who have posted thier personal information- phone numbers and adresses-Please read the Troop Support links. There a number of organizations that can link you to a soldier to corraspond with. Putting up such personal information, while it is with good intentions, is not a wise choice. Our soliders are very busy and would love to hear from you. And in dealing with said organizations you can send them care package of things they have specifically asked for. These groups are very special and are 100% genuine. They only have our troops best interest in mind. So again, please look at the Troop Support link, please don’t post your personal information. For your own saftey.

  58. Kat in GA: A Soldiers Angel Says:

    Arianna… Not sure what you mean by “difficult.” I’m a member of Soldiers Angels, Web of Support and Adoptaplatoon. (have been with adoptaplatoon for seven years now). The reason they ask for the information they do (full name, address, and phone number) and conduct telephonic interviews of people applying to adopt soldiers is solely for the safety of the soldiers being adopted…they (the organizations) take the security and safety of the soldiers very, very seriously. Plus, they want to make sure that we (the adopters) understand that adopting a soldier is a *very* serious, very big commitment and not something to be done lightly… i.e., a letter here, a letter, there, and ‘oh gosh, I never heard from my soldier so I’m not going to write anymore.’ It involves some serious dedication and absolutely, totally, completely *unconditional* support to continue sending letters at least once a week, EVERY week, for six, nine, 12 or 18 months straight while they are deployed - oftentimes without EVER hearing a single peep from the one we adopt. They just want to make sure that the soldiers really will be well cared-for once they are adopted out. I don’t know if you were referring to the ‘process’ of adopting a soldier, or just navigating the websites in general… but anyway, I hope this helps some!
