On behalf of Weapon’s Squad, 1st Platoon, I would like to personally thank each one of our supporters for bringing us a little piece of home to help get us through this deployment. Each of you has made a tremendous impact on the Soldiers of Weapon’s Squad. For the majority of them, this is their first deployment. Your support and encouraging words have made this deployment that much more bearable.
I also wanted to mention that since we have had so many supporters request our address, that I have pass on care packages to some of the Soldiers within 1st Platoon, Gunfighter Company, that do not receive many packages. So, to our great supporters you are now supporting an entire Infantry Platoon! Without your efforts we would not be able to maintain proper hygiene or have good snacks that remind us of home.   
I have encouraged each of the Soldiers to send emails and pictures to each of our supporters. We have received numerous cards and letters that we are able to start pen pals with each person. I have personally received emails from 20 different supporters thanks to “Jolene”. People have contacted us from around the world, and have started new friendships that will hopefully last a long time.
For many of the people that have heard about the events of the 1st of August, I still have not heard any news on Marjanna. I hope that she does return, because it would be an incredible reunion. All I can do is wait until that day, and pray that she is doing well. If you have no idea what I am talking about, well I guess you have to send me a letter or card with your email address to find out. Trust me you would enjoy hearing about little Marjanna.
Well, as far as the things will still need, here is our list.
Baby wipes
Ramen noodles (chicken flavor)
Laundry detergent pods
Tuna packets (single serving)
Ritz Crackers
Peanut Butter
Drink mixes (single serving packets)
Popcorn
Chef Boyardee (any canned type will do)
Potato chips, And any other junk food that makes us remember home!!!

Again I ask that if you send a package, letter, or card please include your email address so we can thank you much quicker than snail mail.

Thanks for supporting us! God Bless!

Sincerely,

SSG Thomas Baysore

I would sincerely like to apologize for not updating my profile sooner. My Squad has received numerous packages and has made contact with several supporters. My only request to the outstanding people that have decided to support my squad, I would ask that in any letter or package that you would include an email address. I only reason that I ask of this, is because the outgoing mail does not get sent regularly. The letter mail only gets sent maybe once a month. So, if you would include an email address that would ensure a quick response from me or my Soldiers. I am attaching 2 photos of a couple of my Soldiers out in the mountains of Afghanistan doing their jobs. I am also planning on taking a Squad photo so the great supporters can get a good picture of the Soldiers they are supporting.

As far as the things we need and could use. We still continue to have no means of purchasing items at a PX or store. So, your packages are extremely helpful. We also like to pass on some of the items to the locals that may be in need. My Squad would like to get to know the people that have taken the time to put together items for complete strangers. I encourage all my Soldiers to write or email letters to every person that contacts us. This allows the Soldier to be able to receive encouraging words from our supporters when times get tough. As well as shed a little light on what the war means to the Soldiers on the front lines.

Here are a few things my Soldiers have requested.

Hygiene Products (tooth paste, body wash, bar soap, tooth brush, deodorant, etc.) Ramen noodles Tuna packets (single serving) Ritz Crackers Peanut Butter Drink mixes (single serving packets) Protein bars or protein mixes ( chocolate or vanilla) Vitamin C caplets (hard to get our daily vitamins here) Popcorn Chef Borardee (any canned type will do) Baby wipes Potato chips And any other junk food that makes us remember home!!!

Again thanks for supporting us! God Bless!

First off, I would like to say thank you for continuous support our troops. I used this organization on my last deployment to Afghanistan from 2010-2011, and the Soldiers greatly appreciated the thought and care that went into each package. We loved to read the letters that people wrote to us, and even made some friendships with some of the people back in the states. To see that this organization is still up and running reminds us of how many people still care about what we sacrificing to be over here defending someone else’s country and way of life.

Our living conditions consist of bunk beds and approx 15 men to a room. We do have 110 electricity in our buildings which is convenient to power our electrical equipment and computers; as well as a laundry room so we can wash our uniforms. We have several refrigerators and a microwave to cook of heat up certain foods.

Since, we do not have a PX (store) anywhere near our facility it makes it difficult to get some of basic personal hygiene items like: hand soaps, body wash, razors, tooth brush and tooth paste, laundry detergents, deodorant. Some of the other items that can be difficult to come by are white over the ankle socks, black “Fox River” socks, calling cards, and batteries (sizes AA & AAA).

I am personally representing my Infantry Squad and will personally ensure that any items that would be donated to our squad make it to the individual Soldiers in need.

Sincerely,
SSG Thomas Baysore

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.)
