About Soldiers' Angels
Soldiers' Angels is a volunteer-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission of providing aide and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard and their families. We were founded by Patti Patton-Bader, mother of two American Soldiers--one who returned home from a year's deployment to Iraq in 2004, and another who began a 15-month deployment to Iraq in late 2007. We are an international organization with members in all fifty states, Puerto Rico, and several friendly countries who support America's men and women in uniform, and were incorporated in the state of Nevada in June of 2003.
We are a continually-evolving, grassroots organization comprised of hundreds of thousands volunteers in over twenty different teams and projects who have developed unique and effective ways to support members of the U.S. military. To date, our volunteers have sent hundreds of thousands of care packages and letters to deployed service members; we have supplied the wounded with our First Response Packs directly at the Combat Support Hospitals in Iraq and Afghanistan and the major military hospital in Germany, as well as provided care and comfort to those in stateside military and VA facilities; we have provided emergency aid to military families in need; we have partnered with the Department of Defense to provide voice-controlled/adaptive laptops to about 6,000 severely-wounded servicemembers; we have provided flights to soldiers on leave or in emergency situations, and to their families wanting to be with them up return from overseas; we provided Level III KEVLAR armored blankets to give personnel extra protection in their vehicles when it was needed; we help to honor the families whose loved ones have paid the ultimate price for our freedom and safety. With the assistance of our generous supporters , the many volunteers of Soldiers' Angels have accomplished this and much, much more on behalf of the grateful citizens of the United States of America.
Our slogan, "May No Soldier Go Unloved," encapsulates the motivation behind Soldiers' Angels. By working together with a common vision of service, the volunteers of Soldiers' Angels continue to make a visible difference in the lives of veterans, the wounded, deployed service members, and their families.
