From his wife, "My husband is a very special man. He will always be with me and our son. We love him so very much. You may post my email as"

From email on 6 March 2005:
"I wanted to thank all of you for taking the time to send your condolences. I havent had much time to reply to you all, but as soon as I do, there are quite a few of you that i would like to write a personal email to instead of this reply that goes out to all who've emailed me. My husband was a very proud man, everyone is proud of him as well. He had joined the Army after the 9/11 attacks because he wanted to serve his country. This was his second tour, he had depoyed on October 2, 2004. He's such a funny and upbeat person, always had a smile on his face and tried to help out everyone and keep everyone happy. Even being in Iraq for his second time, he tried to keep the guys cheerful. We have a son, Aiden, and it's his 1st birthday today. My husband was so dissappointed when i had to tell him over the phone all the new things our son had learned. His first words, when his firts teeth came in, his first haircut. Our son just took his first steps 2 days ago and i know his dad was watching that. Many of you have asked for an address to send flowers or gifts to. I'd like to ask for something else instead, if you feel the need to do something. I have set up a college account for my son at Wells Fargo. I ask that instead of sending me items, please donate to his account. The account number is 5533806732 and the name on his account is Aiden Eames Hernandez. Once again, I thank all of you for taking the time to lift my spirits."

Hi, My name is SGT. Hernandez,Frank. I am representing my section in a scout platoon for 2/14 Cav stationed out of FT.Lewis, Washington. We have access to 220 voltage but no way of cooking items of food. I ask if you could be as kind as to supply my men with hygeing products of any type. We dont have access to a PX. Maybe once every two months if we are lucky to go to Mosul. Any kind of entertainment will also be a good moral booster. We appriciate all that this website is doing for soldiers deployed all across the world. Some of our men smoke and some use smokless tabacoo. Others enjoy throwing candies and toys to the local kids when people arent shooting at us. Sorry for the joke un called for. Well thanks for all that you do. We appriciate everything.

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.)
