25 Oct 2017:
Greetings from Afghanistan to all of our Special Mission Wing supporters. You continue to humble our team with the outpouring of support both in substance, and through your kind words. Your thoughtfulness plays a huge role in our success with our Afghan counterparts. We have made significant strides over the past five months in building sustainable practices with our counterparts, and continue to make Afghanistan's future outlook positive. I know I speak for all of my team when I say it is truly an honor to deploy in support of all Americans and US interests abroad.
I continue to receive request for toiletries (body wash, razors, shaving cream, deodorant); so any assistance would be appreciated. Additionally, coffee fuels our efforts, and we are approaching a K-Cup crisis in the near future. Any K-cups you could spare will keep a teammate in the fight with an abundance of energy. Once again, thank you for what you do for us.

Any Soldier,

Thanks to all of our supporters. We have received unbelievable support from many different organizations and individuals. I must say it has made a tremendous difference in the morale of our soldiers. As you can imagine we are tremendously busy, and while I may not correspond as much as I would like too, know that your support is appreciated by all of the team here in Kabul. The smiles on their face when they receive a care package filled with things they may need, or just a touch of home makes a huge difference with morale. We honestly do not need much here, but toiletry items such as Mouthwash, toothpaste, deodorant, lotion, and razors/shaving cream are always welcome. Additionally, coffee K cups are always a welcome commodity. Thanks in advance for all you do for our team!

Any Soldier,

I just wanted to update my page with the message below. Thank you for your continued service to our troops.

I just wanted to thank everyone for the thoughtful letters and numerous care packages over the past few weeks. Your support has improved morale and quality of life more than you will know. I will send personal correspondence to many of you as my time permits. Our unit continues to make progress and spirits are high as we work diligently to support The Government of Afghanistan. The only additional request I have received from the men and women throughout the unit is for more K-Cups to fuel our efforts. Thanks you once again for your unwavering support, and I hope each of you had a great Independence day.

I am CMSgt Kistler, and I am representing a joint Unit here in Afghanistan that has two additional operating locations. We provide mentorship to an Afghan aviation unit daily, helping them increase there capacity to succeed. Our living conditions are modest. Rooms range from 1 to 2 occupants with twin sized beds and most have a small refrigerator. We have electricity 220 and limited 110 throughout the living quarters. We have one microwave that everyone shares. Cooking utensils and accessibility is sparse and communal when available. Basic hygiene items are available but in limited supplies, especially baby wipes, shaving cream, razors, mouth and body wash. Organic non perishable foods such as fruit/nut bars, oatmeal, peanut butter, wheat bran caned meats are in high demand but are not available in any accessible stores. Laundry facilities are available, and require pods/dryer sheets. These also run out quickly due to high demand. Civilian clothes are authorized routinely, but most have limited to none. Items such as workout t-shirts, shorts (Med,large,X-large),cargo pants (32-36 waist, 32-34 length), collard shirts (plain colors, M, Large, x-large)would be beneficial. Thank you in advance for your support, and I look forward to providing updates as we continue our service.

Why? Because this list changes all the time due to unit movements, soldier transfers, or even soldier casualties.
It is also illegal. ALL content on this site is copyright Any Soldier Inc.
DO NOT send any letter or package to a soldier's address unless you check this web site the same day you mail your packages.
Please do not burden the soldiers or the APO/FPO by sending things when the soldiers are gone. If a soldier is not listed here anymore then that soldier's address is expired. Check here often!

Note that some of the units do not have ranks shown on their addresses.
This is done at the unit's request, but ALL of our contacts ARE Servicemembers.

Be sure to change the "ATTN" line to "ATTN: Any Female Soldier if your package is for a female!

DO NOT use this program if you expect or require a reply!
DO NOT expect, or require, a reply from a Soldier!
A supporter said it perfectly, "I mean, these guys and gals have other things on their minds, y’know? Like...oh, STAYING ALIVE?"

(NOTE *): Effective 1 May 2006 this web site added a major layer of security to our contacts' information. This change is necessary to protect our troops and ensure that Any Soldier will continue to operate.
The ONLY changes are that the addresses of our contacts are now hidden and the number of addresses you can get are limited. You may obtain addresses simply by clicking on the link provided and correctly filling out the form, the address will then be emailed to you immediately.

(NOTE **): The number shown is how many times a form was submitted requesting this address. This does NOT necessarily mean that this contact will be helped by that many folks. Rule of thumb is that anything 5 requests or less may in fact be no support at all. No way to tell exactly unless the contact lets you know in his/her update how much support they are getting.

(Note 1.): Note that postage to APO AE and FPO AE (E = Europe) is only to NY where the connection to the APO/FPO (APO = Army Post Office)(FPO = Fleet Post Office) is, or to San Francisco for APO AP and FPO AP (P = Pacific), so you don't pay postage all the way to Iraq/Afghanistan. You might consider picking contacts closer to your mailing area to help cut the cost of mailing. If you live on the East Coast, pick "AE", West Coast, pick "AP", Midwest, well...uh, Thank You for your Support! ;)

New with us (December 2005) you might notice "APO AA" and "FPO AA". This is for units in the Caribbean/South America. Normally. However, due to the nature of some units they may be in Iraq but have an address showing "FPO AA". Mail addresses to "AA" goes out of Miami, Florida.

(Note 2.): Why are military addresses weird? There isn't a street address or city. What gives? Correct, just about everything about the military is weird to civilians. Military units are very mobile, they move around a lot, often they even become part of another unit. The APO (Army Post Office) and FPO (Fleet Post Office) assign APO and FPO numbers as needed, they are NOT static. An APO/FPO number may be for a large unit, or a location. An APO/FPO number for Baghdad today may be for Frankfurt tomorrow.

(Note 3.): The "Expect to not mail past" date is only an approximate and is one of the least reliable things on this web site. It is because of this that you must check often before you send anything to this unit. There are a few reasons this date is not reliable, to include: it IS the Military, we ARE dealing with the APO/FPO/DPO. The only thing that does not change in the military is that things will change. PLEASE NOTE that a Contact is dropped off our active list 30 days PRIOR to their date leaving to help avoid mail bouncing.

(Note 4.): (Removed for OPSEC reasons)

(Note 5.): The lines, "Contact with approx number of Soldiers:" and "Approx how may Female Soldiers:" have NOTHING to do with unit strength. They are approximately how many other Troops the Contacts believe they can get packages to. This helps you understand that you should not send 100 packages to someone who only deals with 10 Troops.
Don't forget that if your package is for a female Soldier, be sure to change "ATTN: Any Soldier®" to "ATTN: Any Female Soldier".

( Note 6.): This is simply where the unit this contact is from. This is NOT a true picture of the folks in the unit as most all units are made up of folks from all over the United States.) A "Composite Unit" is one made up of other units and is usually temporary for a particular mission.

( Note 7.): Updated APO/FPO/DPO mailing restrictions> courtesy of (gone now) (Note: About Restriction "U2": "U2 - Limited to First Class Letters", Box "R" is for retired personnel that live overseas and are still authorized an APO/FPO box. Their address will be something like Box 3345R. Doubt you will see anything like that in Afghanistan or Iraq or ...)(Please Note: Sometime in August 2013, changed the code on their page and our form doesn't work with them anymore, so a link to their page is the best we can do, sorry.)
