Hi! We are getting your packages, and I want to thank you on behalf of the entire crew out here for your support. The treats and stuff you guys send out are a phenomenal boost to morale. We don't have much of an option to get anything else, so every time mail runs, it is like Christmas!

As far as the way forward, we have a good stock of toiletry items on hand so you could slow those down. The little individually packaged snacks are great! I am personally partial to rice crispy treats, trail mixes, nuts, and dried fruit :), and the guys love the beef jerky of course. If there was anything I could request it would be coffee items. Either ground or instant, and creamer if you guys have that sort of thing. We have access to sugar so no worries there. Additionally, we get pretty stinky out here so any sort of smell good stuff is always welcome. I don't know if you can ship aerosol cans, but a can of lysol would go a long way out here.

If you guys have access to these items, a handful of 220V personal fans would be great. Also some electrical adapters (110 to 220 plug adapters), those would be awesome. Most phones and computers are dual voltage these days, but if you don't have an adapter then you can't plug into the wall!! Finally, some cheap sunglass retainers would be great for the guys to use to hang their sunglasses from their necks.

Thank you guys again for all that you do. I realize that you probably don't hear much from Soldiers downrange, but rest assured that your efforts are not futile; I guarantee you that you are bringing smiles to Soldiers' face worldwide.

Any Soldier,

Thank you so much for the support we have received thus far! The outpouring of packages and letters we have The received on this deployments has been truly humbling. The only real update that I would have is that we have received an abundance of personal hygiene items and have a pretty solid stockpile out here. The hot items for our guys continues to be snacks, i.e. pringles, fruit snacks, candy, jerky, etc. Thank you again for all your support!

My unit and I have been enjoying the phenominal care packages that people have been sending and are extremely grateful for them. I wanted to provide you with our updated address. It has changed because of other units moving around.

We have received phenomenal support from the many folks that have sent packages out here to our unit. We wish we could reply to everyone that sent stuff and will try to get it done, but our OPTEMPO out here is very high so it is tough to reply individually to everyone that has been supporting us. Please know that your support does not go unnoticed and is very much appreciated.

The big things that we need out here are snacks and candy. Our food options out here are very limited and with some of the hours that we work out here, lunch and dinner are not always available to us. Being able to have some snacks and candy really does help.

We are about to enter the rainy season out here and we took a look at the webpage for your sponsor "extremeoutfitters" and came up with one thing that we could really use out here. The link is pasted below and we could use Large and Extra Large sizes.
Also size 11 in these shoes.

We're a group of guys that are going to a place unlike any other deployment we have had in the past. No PX or place for us to buy snacks/food and hygiene products. From what we understand, the food that will be available to us will be less than desirable. Any kind of snacks that can supplement our diet will be much appreciated. We are so grateful for the support of our fellow citizens and thank you in advance for your kindness. God bless.

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.)
