25 Oct 2017:

To whom it may concern;

Just wanted to write an update. The care packages are starting to roll in and thank you so much for all the wonderful things that have been sent. To try and express the feeling and energy in the office or room when the mail comes is hard to do. I am truly blessed to get to witness the joy of watching these soldiers open their care packages. The closest thing I can compare it to is like kids on Christmas morning. I’m not saying these soldiers are children. But the excitement, joy and sincerest appreciation on their face is truly something to behold. The energy in the air is almost tangible or palpable. They really enjoy the cards/letters or notes as much as the items in the boxes. The moral of each and every soldier is boosted knowing that there are people out there that appreciate their sacrifice and commitment and the job that they are doing. The soldiers look forward to when mail comes as the highlight of their week. It’s starting to get colder here so- so the blankets couldn’t have come at a better time. Now that we have received some power strips- everyone has a place to charge their phones and electronics to help them stay in touch with their family and friends back in the States. We can work more efficiently as well as some soldiers doing online classes in the bit of downtime. The snacks didn’t last very long. Everyone sharing and trading and eating it all up.

I am not sure if this where I am supposed to update the list of items requested. If not I apologize - but due to mission requirements- my unit and I had to change locations.(I mentioned that we changed locations. I just want to clarify that though we changed locations, the shipping address for care packages did not change and is still a good address for our soldiers. I personally escourt and deliver all the mail to the new location 2 times a week.) Our new home is very over crowded and has no px, the dining facility is having trouble keeping up with the demand so many of the soldiers are stuck eating MREs most days. I know it’s what we signed up for- but snack items to add some variety to their diet would be fantastic. We discovered that chocolate doesn’t ship well- it melts- and ends up being a large lump in the box. But chips, sunflower seeds, beef jerky, trail mix, peanuts/pistachio, granola bars, pop tarts, cereal bars fruit snacks, etc are fantastic to throw in our ducks and go. Also we are hurting for toiletry items such as q-tips, toothbrushes and tooth paste, shampoo and conditioners travel size, hand sanitizer, baby wipes, (we can never have enough baby wipes), soap, mouth wash, and foot powder. Also the soldiers would like some mio drink squeeze things to add to the water, Couple deck of cards, reading material/ word searches etc. if at all possible of course. We are still living and working in tents, and we are still unable to make food or cook- except microwaveable noodles. So ramen or “cup of noodles “ would be a treat here after eating MREs all day every day.

I hope this letter comes close to expressing our gratitude for past and future donations. I know it sounds like a lot, and we don’t expect everything, but whatever you can and would like to send would be greatly appreciated. Every little bit helps and nothing goes to waste. We are extremely grateful everyday for your continued support.

Very Respectfully,
Candace N Blake

We are an ACtive Duty unit deployed to Iraq out of Fort Polk, LA. The soldiers of my unit are in various places. And some locations have more amenities than others. However, they all live in tents with 110 power. However power outlets are scarce. With many soldiers sharing the same one. More plugs would be ideal. They sleep on cots. No pillows available. Something soft (blanket or pillow would be nice) I don't want to send a shopping list. No stove, no cooking utensils or ability. 1 of the 3 locations has a px. But the 1 is very small with limited bare essentials. The guys at the the other two locations do not have a px and do not get an opportunity to rotate back here to utilize the px. They rely strictly on care packages. Which is who I am trying to be a contact for. We do have a laundry service. However drinks that replace electrolytes are hard to get. So Gatorade powder mixes would be nice. Snacks and cookies and beef jerky, tampons (multi pack), baby wipes, hand sanitizer, travel size hygiene products are very welcome. I am running out of room here. I hope this meets the criteria. Thank you so much for your support. Look forward to our monthly updates.

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.)
