Sorry it's been so long since the last update. Well OK, not really sorry. Things have been busy and getting busier since we have a few thousand more people out here in Tall Afar and surrounding areas. We might actually fix this area soon.
It's starting to get just a bit warm around here. Just a bit. I guess summer is here. Another 20 degrees hotter is what we're expecting by July. At least we won't be here to get cold again.

Things are starting to pick back up again. It was eerily calm for a week. Getting back to "normal" for us. I can't burn any CDs of the movies and pictures some of you requested because my burner died. And, being a hothead, I took it outside and shot it so I guess it will never work now. Oh well. There should be a Squadron web page up and running soon with plenty of movies and pictures. Thanks again for all the great support.

Thanks for all the support. Blackjack Troop is doing pretty good. Staying busy as usual. Lots of long days and late nights. They've got us looking for this guy named Al Zarkowski, I think his name is. Maybe from Wisconsin? Hopefully we'll catch the #1 dirtbag in Iraq soon.
Wouldn't that be a great picture to have posted on this site.....Us with Zarqawi in cuffs.
One thing we could use is coffee cups. Strange request I know and the first thing I've actually asked for but it's almost impossible to get coffee cups out here. Free advertising for your business, though.
Thanks again for all the support. Hopefully, if you've sent us anything, you've received a reply. I know I've sent plenty of thank you letters and email in the last three months. If I didn't send you a thank you, you can write me an angry letter telling me off!

Elections are complete. Voter turn-out was pretty awesome considering there was constant gunfire and explosions throughout Tall'Afar. Pretty brave people to come out to vote. All the Blackjack Troopers are doing good. Still having fun (sort of) and waiting to see how things will go around here now that the elections are over.

The elections are getting closer and we're ready to step up to help. We're even willing to get down and dirty just like the guys in the picture. I was able to get online storage for the Troop movies and, so far, the response has been pretty good. It's much quicker than snail mail since it takes about a month and a half both ways. It was a slow day so I was able to catch up on letters and email saying thanks. Probably the last one for a few weeks...
Thanks again for all the support.

Thanks to all of you for a great Christmas.
A few pictures this time. We don't give parking tickets, have our own master key (the flat bread was good, also) and 3rd Platoon trucks prior to a mission. I get my butt chewed about the flags every other day but I won't tell them to take them down.
The Troop is doing well, we have plenty of stuff. The guys that dip are having difficulty getting Copenhagen so if it's not politically incorrect....
We also have a Troop movie and tons of photos. If you send a CDROM and a larger envelope, I send you one. Several went in the mail today. Unfortunately, only about half are turning out right. Does anything in this country actually work?
Thanks again to all of you for the support. Lots of letters and email have been sent.

If you send stuff for the kids, they love it as you can see. We'll also write messages for you to our "friends". This 120mm was special delivery air mail.
Thanks for all the support so far. I sent lots of thank you letters this week and it didn't bother me a bit.

We received half a dozen packages today. Thanks! We are building a "Wall of Fame" with all the cards and letters we receive. I'll have a picture of that soon.
The support is awesome. We sure do have a great country, don't we?

I signed up 10 days ago and was able to hand out 5 Christmas cards today to my guys. Thanks go as much to you folks for providing this site as to the people who support the soldiers. Thanks.
I will personally respond to every person that sends my soldiers a card, letter or package. Big promise and I'm sure that will become difficult later but the folks back home deserve it for what they do for us.
Please add at the bottom of the listing "You will receive a response from myself or one of my troopers."
Attached is a picture of a few of my guys on patrol in Tall'Afar.

I am the First Sergeant of B Troop, 2-14 CAV. We are near Tall'Afar, Iraq. We're stuck pretty much in the middle of nowhere with limited access to any type of amenities. We see action just about every day and anything from home helps the guys keep up their morale. The conditions here are austere, but we enjoy it for the most part. Thanks in advance for any type of support you are willing to give.

IMPORTANT! DO NOT PRINT THIS PAGE!!!

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 Oconus.com (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, Oconus.com 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.)
