Greetings from Afghanistan!

Just wanted to touch base with all the supporters of take a moment to say "Thank-You"!

We continue to receive numerous boxes from supporters from all over the country. My Marines have told me they have written / emailed individuals or companies thanking them for their remarkable support. If you have not received a "thank you"....I assure you someone will try to contact you. Everything you have provided is greatly appreciated....package, letters or notes.

I honestly wish I could "by-name" thank each individual, but I don't want to leave anyone out. So, I will just say thank you to the team...i.e. America. Every time I see one of the Marines receive and open a reminds myself "why" we are here and "what" we are doing in order protect or country and ensure the safety of our family and loved ones.

The Marines do not have any special requests at this time. Each one is very thankful for all of your support.

God Bless and Semper Fi.
Jon Connolly

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Holidays from Helmand Provence. The Marines are doing well, and some care-packages have been arriving! THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH! It is wonderful to see the Marines opening the packages....the look of excitement is worth the world! I am positive that a Marine will email/mail soon.

Once again, thank you very much for the wonderful support and letters! It has completely changed to tone of X-mas this year while we are away from our families and loved ones.

Happy Holidays & Semper Fi,
LtCol Jon Connolly

Hello again! This is my forth time requesting support from the extremely supportive This site has been a “lifesaver” over the years/deployments.

Thank you for accepting my request for support for yet another deployment to the Middle East. We have a wonderful team assembled for this mission, but a majority of the Marines within the Task Force…this is their first deployment. Your support will be very important to them. Not for the “care-packages and stuff” but just to receive a letter or note reminding these young Men and Women that they are not alone and America support them while they are overseas - away from family and friends.

Thank you very much ahead of time…I am excited to be part of the team once again. Please send me questions or concerns at anytime. As you can see from my past deployments I will continue to keep all supporters in the loop with updates and pictures.

Semper Fi,
LtCol Jon P. Connolly
Chief of Staff
Task Force Southwest
Camp Shorab, Afghanistan

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.)
