"Angels are special and rare! They make differences in people's (Soldiers) lives and bring a smile quite often in times when they are needed the most. Even though they may never see that smile, that laugh or that feeling he gets in his heart, they continue to do the unbelievable. I know first hand, because you were my Angel and brought that joy and happiness to me!" - James
The Deployed Adoptions Team is a team of dedicated Angels who support service members deployed overseas. Our goal is to ensure no service member feels alone.
Deployed service members register with Soldiers' Angels and then go into a waiting pool to be matched with an Angel. Once matched with an Angel that Angel will send the service member at least two letters a month and at least one care package a month until the service member returns home. The Deployed Adoptions Team is made up of thousands of dedicated Angels who invest their own funds to support our service members. Thousands of service members are served through this program every year.
You all made a big impact on my deployment. It was a breath of fresh air to see that random people who we didn't even know send care packages to us. It wasn't the package that made it amazing, it was the feeling I got when I received it from someone I didn't even know. - Matt
You can never imagine how important it is to know that you have people back home that support [us] and care about what we are doing. - CW2 Eric
Being away from home, family and friends is really hard. But when you receive mail and care packages, it truly brightens your day. - SSG Stephens
