12 Dec 2017:

I would like to apologize for not being able to update my profile or reply to those that have sent packages and letters. I have been in a location without internet capabilities. As for an update on how me and my marines are doing we are all alive and well and very much appreciate the packages we have received from our supporters. The support we have received so far has made a world of difference for my marines and their moral. If we can still receive support, we could use snacks to act in place of meals for the times we are unable to get chow or food is running low. Items like chips, meal replacement bars and cups of noodles would help a lot. We could also use hygiene items like toothpaste, mouthwash, shaving cream and floss. I would like to say thanks again to all those who have helped us along the way this deployment.

    I would like to start by thanking everyone for their support, I have saved all letters we have received and when I get a chance I will be replying to all who have sent us care packages. We are starting to get daily temperatures that average above 100 degrees, so hydration is important. We could use Gatorade packets and powder to add to water and any source of electrolytes. We continue to have limited access to meals due to are working schedule and operations, so any meal replacement foods like ramen noodles, canned soup or snack bars would be helpful on days that we are unable to get a hot meal. Hygiene supplies are also low, we could use items like shaving cream, razors, body wash, toothpaste, mouthwash and floss. We could also use black or brown long socks and green t shirts since our clothing is starting to wear fast in the environment we are in.

Tactical support:
    I saw the provided web address for any tactical support we may need. I know that we could use headlamps that can provide other that white light. At night we can only operate with either green, red or blue light. Also one of my Marines needs a lanyard"target="_blank">pistol lanyard for a M9 Pistol and a sling for M4. I will provide URL's for what I can find on their website, but any version of the products would work.

Thanks for all the support.

Myself and the other 10 marines in my shop work a minimal of 12 hours per day sometimes up to 16 hours. We are only allotted 3 meals a day and may miss a meal due to our work schedule. Their is a small store but due to hours of operation and the amount of people it serves its hard to get any items from the store. Me and my marines could use food that can be utilized as meal replacement for the meals that we may miss while working or when food gets scarce and the meals become small. We could also use basic hygiene equipment to make sure we maintain healthy physical condition when the store is sold out of basic toiletries. the biggest issue that my marine will be facing is lack of access to items that are taken for granted back home which would be snack foods, toiletries and undergarments such as socks, boxers and green undershirts. any support would be much appreciated.

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.)
