What is Adoption

Adopting is a simple process where any individual can pair up with a soldier, marine, airmen, sailor, etc.


It's easy.
You simply click the button requesting to adopt, we will send you a single form to fill out and return. You will have your soldier the same day. (usually within an hour).

What does it involve

Mostly sending things which commonly can't be found on duty. Small gestures like clothes, hygiene kits or even personal letters.

I want to adopt and see some helpful tips

Brilliant, you are one step closer to reminding one of our Soldiers that our nation cares about them. Soldiers often feel lonely while they are away and adopting a troop is a great way to help them rid that feeling.
