Urgent Support for Deployed

Our warships have repositioned.

It’s anyone’s guess what’s next in the Middle East.

“The message that I bring to Israel is this: you may be strong enough on your own to defend yourself, but as long as America exists, you will never, ever have to. We will always be there by your side.” – US Secretary of State Antony Blinken**

A potential war is on the horizon and a dramatic humanitarian crisis is unfolding. Our military members could be pulled in at a moment’s notice. 

In the last few days, the USS Gerald R. Ford Carrier Strike Group has repositioned to the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit has repositioned from Kuwait to an undisclosed location, and the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower Strike Group is scheduled to deploy from Naval Station Norfolk tomorrow.

We need to be ready to support our deployed men and women.

Here’s How We Are Preparing and How You Can Help:

This current situation remains extremely fluid. While the needs of our Service Members could change at a moment’s notice, one thing is certain— they will need our resolute support as they face the uncertainties ahead. 

At this moment, our biggest need is care package items, Fly Away bag items, and monetary donations to send those care packages. We anticipate a steep increase in the number of deployed requesting support as well as a potential rise in the number who will be deploying and we need to be ready to support them!

America’s Service Members are consistently at the ready to respond when called upon. And so is Soldiers’ Angels. If your support, either monetary or in-kind, is not used to support those deployed to the Middle East, it will be used for the next instance of urgent support for our deployed!

We are in urgent need of care package items in order to keep up with the anticipated increase in requests for support. We are also in need of financial donations to help cover the cost of shipping care packages and other items.

A donation of $25 will ship a care package to a deployed Service Member.

A donation of $70 will ship 5 to 6 care packages in one large master box.

A donation of $300 will ship an entire pallet of snacks, hygiene, and more.

Below is a sample list of needed items for care packages or you can also shop our Wish List and have items sent directly to our warehouse. If you would rather provide funding to help cover the cost of shipping, please donate here.
