Recently, there has been a BIG surge in our Soldier Sign-up Program on our website. This program allows soldiers to sign-up to receive care packages from us.
With so many troops still overseas fighting the War on Terror, there is still an enormous need to support our men and women in uniform. There are up to 18,000 troops now deployed in Iraq (5,000) and Afghanistan (13,000), as well as some 500 special forces in Syria.
We are working hard to fulfill all the soldier sign-up requests and make sure that all our brave men and women of the military receive the care package that they requested.
Just last week, we sent out a big 650 package shipment. Our volunteers are currently working on putting together another big batch of care packages for later this week. Donate NOW to make sure your package in included in this upcoming shipment!
As part of our Soldier Sign-Up Program, the troops can leave a message with some of their thoughts and feelings and share a little bit about themselves. Below are some recent notes and care package requests from troops on the front lines. They convey what it means to them personally, to serve and to receive support from you
Real Notes from Deployed Troops
For our troops deployed in combat roles on the front lines of Afghanistan and Iraq, a daily patrol consists of miles and miles of walking through dusty and rocky villages with bad roads or no roads at all. In this harsh terrain and with the demands of long 10 hour patrols on a daily basis, boots and socks wear out fast.
You simply can’t do a 10 hour patrol with defective socks, even just a few holes can mean painful blisters and sore heels. Socks wear out fast, but they are an absolute necessity to keep our troops GOING, literally!
With this problem in mind, we set out to find a good source of socks that we could provide for the troops in these care packages that would not increase the cost of sending packages. We are pleased to report that we found a great source of high quality socks.
These boot socks are THICK. They can take a BEATING and keep on ticking!
And now these awesome, strong boot socks are now included in every care package through Move America Forward.
Along with these comfortable boot socks, here’s a list of everything the troops will receive when you sponsor a care package.
