Aloha Team AnySoldier.com,

It has been close to 2 months since my last update and wanted to provide the following updates.

After being in country for close to 4 months, I can now revise the item listing and provide a more accurate account of items needed by Soldiers. The fall season in the desert in fast approaching and now have chilly to cold mornings and evenings. The average temperature is now 64-70 degrees during the day and even lower at night. The rooms and offices have A/C so that is definitely a blessing; however, I am not sure when the heat will be officially turned on for daily warmth. We have to walk outside to use bathrooms, showers, and laundry facilities. The Post Exchange (PX) has items but supply is more in demand than availability. With that being said, the following items are items requested by our male and female Soldiers:

1. Air Fresheners (This is probably the #1 item because of the living conditions and masking the normal odors associated with multi-person living).

2. Chapstick (maintain moisturized lips in the desert heat and cold).

3. Bodywash (stay fresh and clean).

4. Flavored drink packets to put in water.

5. Magnetic Multi-Use Hooks to organize area.

6. Cashews or Honey Roasted Peanuts.

Please let me know if there is anything else needed from me to further assist in the update of my AnySoldier profile.

Mahalo,

Tavarus M. Brown

Aloha Team AnySoldier,

It has been close to 2 months since my last update and wanted to provide the following updates.

After being in country for 30+ days, I can now revise the item listing and provide a more accurate account of items needed by Soldiers. The average temperature is 120-125 during the day and 90 degrees at night. The rooms and offices have A/C so that is definitely a blessing. We have to walk outside to use bathrooms, showers, and laundry facilities. The Post Exchange (PX) has items but supply is more in demand than availability. With that being said, the following items are items needed by our male and female Soldiers:

1.         Glade or Febreeze Air Fresheners (This is probably the #1 item because of the living conditions and masking the normal odors associated with open bay living).

2.         Chapstick (maintain moisturized lips in the desert heat).

3.         Bodywash (stay fresh and clean).

4.         Crest Travel Toothpaste.

5.         Dental Floss (Dental care is not provided so it is our responsibility to keep our mouth clean).

6.         Lemonade or drink packets to put in water.

7.         Clorox Wipes (Have to maintain cleanliness and sanitization).

11.       Command 3M Hooks (Various Sizes) to organize area.

12.       Inexpensive Headlamps for security while walking to/from bathroom, shower, or laundry.

13.       Facial Cleaner.

14.       Band Aids.

15.       Travel Size Hand Sanitizer.

16.       Trash Bags (Believe or not, these are hard to come by).

17.       Baby Wipes.

18.       Nature Valley Bars.

Please let me know if there is anything else needed from me to further assist in the update of my AnySoldier profile.

Mahalo,

17 Jul 2017
Just to provide a little bit of background about me, I serve as a Postal POC between the USPS, MPSA, and APOs throughout theater and will occasionally conduct postal inspections. I am from the great state of Georgia and am a LOYAL University of Georgia Bulldogs fan. I show my support in every way possible. I have been in the military for a little over 18 years and it has been an awesome journey and experience. I have been a supporter of this website since serving with Brian Horn from 2003-2006. To see where AnySoldier.com started and has evolved into is quite simply amazing. Although I am deeply honored to serve this great nation, I would like to say “Hats Off to You” that continuously show your support in providing packages and letters of love and support to my brethren and me. These items are truly appreciated and distributed to all that needs them. Looking forward to receiving packages and letters to share with the Soldiers in my unit and base.
God Bless!!!!

The temperature on average ranges between 90-130 degrees. Sunblock and sunscreen is requested. Due to the heat and humidity, Chapstick is also requested. The living conditions are always feasible but everyone would like to have a living area that smells pleasant. Would like to receive Febreeze air fresheners that do not require plug in due to the different voltage settings. Headlamps would also be useful as there is 24hr quiet time with lights out due to shift changes. AA & AAA Batteries are also useful. Letters from elementary schools would be awesome to help boost Soldier morale. Sports memorabilia would be nice. Although not an essential need, it would be nice to create a space to represent hometown teams. Our Soldiers favorite teams consist of NCAA (UGA, UNC, FSU, and OSU) and NFL (Raiders, Falcons, Redskins, Panthers) These are just a few items I have notice but will provide updates once 30 days have passed. I truly want to thank you all that take part and help make our time away a little more pleasant.

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.)
