Well another three months has gone, seems to be just flying by, most days that is. Everybody is doing well, Soldiers looking out for other Soldiers helps us get through the bad days, and of course talking to the folks at home.
As far as what is desired by the troops, well coffee, popcorn, Raman noodles, snacks that help pass the midnight hour, the troops love drink mixes, jerky, and all other types of snack foods. Our dining facility is pretty good over here, but they don't stay open all the time and there are times we cannot leave our post to get it anyway, so thinks that you like to snack so do we.

Thank you for all the support, from the previous senders, we all loved the excitement of receiving the packages.

I would like to thank everyone for the boxes we have been receiving, i cant tell everyone how exciting it can be to get a box after no mail has run for a month. Now that the weather is changing we are putting up the hand warmers and gloves and preparing for the heat about to hit us. Being from El Paso it will be very different for several of us, as we are accustomed to dry heat, so dehydration is going to be a major factor for us here. Getting good American snacks can be hard to come by and some Soldiers have expressed their enjoyment of the Hostess/little Debbie cakes that have been sent in the past, and a mention of air fresheners has passed my area alot, its getting pretty hot and the aroma on some is worse than others if you get my drift. LOL!! We have had a shortage of coffee here in our area lately so any flavor sent would be appreciated. And of course, as usual, any flavor of beef jerky, top roman noodles and popcorn are always appreciated.

I want to say thank you to this web-site and the people who contribute to it. We have been very grateful to you all. Some of the favorites out here are as follows: Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, razors, shaving cream, beef jerky, sunglasses, candy, cards, games, bic lighters, socks, gloves, soft tissue / toilet paper (Charmin), toothbrushes, toothpaste, magazines, mouth-wash, gum, squirt guns ( it's hot here ), baby wipes, darts, nerf football, stick on hooks, chia pets, air fresheners, face masks/dust covers, ping pong balls, fruit snacks, trail mix, almonds, cashews, peanuts, and creativity.
Since we've been out here we've received a lot of love from you all and it's very much appreciated. It's a pleasant surprise to have full support of you all from such a distance. Thank you for everything and continue to box up your love and send it this way. We enjoy things you like, something’s that maybe we have never heard of. We also really enjoy getting letters from people from all over. Thank you for your continued support. Chief Wilke

Hello all,
     First of all thank you for your interest in my section. We have just recently deployed from Texas and are excited to get to do our jobs day in and day out. This is my fourth deployment to this region and second to this location. Enough about me onto the Soldiers and the locations’ description.
     We live in billets and trailers; the power is either 110 or 220 volts; the troops do have laundry service however many of them do prefer to do their own laundry at the laundry trailers, so laundry detergent and dryer sheets would definitely be useful; the rooms have microwaves to boil water for quick meals such as Raman and popcorn; I am representing a section of Soldiers that provide Air and missile defense for a forward deployed Air Defense unit.
     Specific type items that would make our stay more comfortable include; sheets for twin size mattresses, deodorant, shower gels, basic toiletry items. Most the Soldiers enjoy snacks that include sunflower, seeds regular or flavored, all types of jerky and microwave popcorn. Electronics are hard to come by over here so any type of media players, gaming systems, or any other “down time killers” would be a great commodity.
     I know the Soldiers would appreciate anything that is send and nothing would go unused. Thank you again for interest in our section and if you decide to sponsor us thank you for your generosity.

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.)
