What is the Women of Valor Team?

November 20, 2017

Being a caregiver for a wounded, ill or injured veteran can be extremely difficult. Many caregivers spend so much time taking care of their family that they forget to care for themselves. That's why Soldiers' Angels created the Women of Valor Team-- to help ensure our female military caregivers are pampered, loved, and provided with the necessary support materials to help them along their journey. Learn more about the Soldiers' Angels Women of Valor Team and how you can help support caregivers.

New Update on Afghanistan School Supplies!

Since July of this year, our amazing Angel volunteers have been supporting deployed service member Kaylan with her mission to provide school supplies for a girls school near her base in Afghanistan. Eager to help these young girls, Angels responded in force by sending hundreds of boxes of school supplies, backpacks, shoes, clothing, toys, and more to Kaylan. Last week, we received another update from Kaylan-- who is still receiving supplies. She wrote: "Thank you seems like the most inadequate word on earth right now... but I am speechless..."
