Soldiers' Angels: 'Absolutely Critical' Mission Possible

Share Article

"For me on the front lines, this support is absolutely critical. It shows that we are not forgotten or uncared for. They are essential to those they touch to keeping morale high in the deployed areas. Thank you Soldiers' Angels!" SGT. Michael Kelley, USArmy in Iraq.

Very soon, as more of U.S. troops will be deployed, or redeployed, in the Global War on Terror, Soldiers' Angels mission becomes even more critical. SA has never let the troops down, but now, more than ever, it needs help from Americans.

Soldiers' Angels has sent over 100,000 packages and countless letters to our troops since it began in 2003. Patti Patton-Bader was inspired to found Soldier's Angels when her son wrote home from Iraq, expressing his concern that some soldiers did not receive any mail or support from home. Within a few short months Soldiers' Angels had grown from a mother writing a few extra letters, to an Internet Community with tens of thousands of angels worldwide.

SGT. Michael Kelley, from IL, has been serving in Iraq since last May:

"As a soldier deployed overseas, I was adopted into the Soldiers' Angels Program. I have not only received valuable moral and emotional support and encouragement, but I have also received care packages. For me on the front lines, this support is absolutely critical. It shows that we are not forgotten or uncared for. They are essential to those they touch to keeping morale high in the deployed areas. Thank you Soldiers' Angels!"

If all predictions hold true, there will be 20,000 extra soldiers just like SGT Kelley. Whether or not you support the war, they are over there making sacrifices for the American People and they need our support.

To support him and all our troops, SA needs your help. Will you adopt a soldier? Will you write letters? Soldiers Angels has many teams in many areas to fulfill our mission statement. If you don't have the time to adopt or join a specialized team, how about making a much needed donation? Every cent raised goes straight into filling the soldiers' needs. We need you.
