I'd like to send and update on My Battalion 2-501 Parachute Infantry Regiment. Part of 1st Brigade Combat Team 82nd Airborne. We are in our fourth month of deployment here in Afghanistan we are all over the country and staying very busy. We have not suffered any loses. Our troopers are ready and resilient and committed to completing our mission here. As the holidays approach our Troopers are missing their families and the comforts of home. We have received quite a number of care packages and letters from many organizations and some individuals. We appreciate each and every one of you and are thankful for the support. Troopers are often surprised to see all the different stuff that comes in and everything seems to be exactly what they needed at the time. Chaplain Reeder and I continue to visit our Troopers at outpost and other bases and take with us your love and support. Some of you we have been in contact with and have sent Thank You cards, letters, and emails. If we have not stay tuned to the page and check out our 2-501 PIR Facebook page. We have given a few shootouts and #Hashtags there. Sometimes we have very limited time or means to contact ya'll. Thank You again for the cards, letters, and pretty things for our female Troopers! They work hard like the rest of us and they are a great group of ladies that keep a good attitude. Again everything that has been sent has been exactly what was wanted or needed.

Very Respectfully,

Hey! Ya'll I really appreciate this site I can tell a lot has been put into it. I am the Religious Affairs specialist for a Parachute Infantry regiment. We have been deployed a lil over a month here and have at least 8 more to go! We are part of 1st brigade combat team 82nd Airborne Division based out of Ft Bragg, NC. I work together with our unit Chaplain Corey Reeder to support our guys and a few gals in many ways. one is to connect with organizations like AnySoldier to help our Troopers know that a bunch of People love them and support what they are doing here. We have Troopers spread far and wide throughout the area. Some are in very austere areas. Chaplain and I go to visit them and we always bring a full duffle bag of Beef jerky, insect repellent, dip, cigars, snacks that don't easily melt and leave them for the guys to enjoy. We have some talented guys here too! A lot of them are very musically inclined and they enjoy Chaplain on his ukulele a hand full of guys are our notice to move platoon! they pretty much wait around in one place all the time in a big tent they arnt able to go to the px or even to the chow hall. they have to be there ready to react in case of an emergency. Those guys can sing tho and Chaplain and I are trying to work out getting them a couple of acoustic guitars and maybe some type of percussion (harambe drum) so maybe they can start a band down there!I found learn to play the harmonica kit myself and im getting it! the Gals here say Im pretty good they come by to see if weve gotten any small perfumes or body sprays in a care package. I am always on the lookout for what I call girl items for them cause we only got a few (female troopers) they have all the toiletry stuff they need they just look for cute accessories something they can fell pretty about like nail polish and black hairbows. Other than missing home it hasn't been that bad out here. I appreciate what yall do and all your thoughts prayers and intentions.
respectfully Sam.

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.)
