The Soldiers' Angels was started by a self-described ‘ordinary mother’ of an ordinary young man turned hero, Corporal Brandon Varn. Brandon was deployed in Iraq and has since honorably completed his mission and has returned back to his proud and loving family.
In the summer of 2003, he wrote home expressing his concern that some soldiers did not receive any mail or support from home. Being a caring and loving mother, she decided not to allow a situation like that to continue. She contacted a few friends and extended family to ask if they would write to a soldier or two.
Within a few short months, The Soldiers’ Angels Foundation went from a mother writing a few extra letters to an Internet Community of over 1500 angels worldwide and growing stronger with the addition of new members daily. With more and more merchants donating services, money and items for packages, the Angels reorganized as a 501 c 3 non-profit foundation. On February 26, 2004, Soldiers’ Angels merged with Keystone Soldiers, proving with our allies we find new strength that better enables us to complete our mission of providing tangible caring support for our military.
Soldiers’ Angels currently supports well over 1700 American Service Members stationed wherever we raise our Country’s Flag and the number is growing daily. We also work tirelessly supporting our Wounded Soldiers, with transitional backpacks, personal visits, phone calls, etc. Additionally, we send our thanks via letters and email to the military of Great Britain, Poland and Australia who serve by our soldiers side in Iraq.
Soldiers' Angels are dedicated to ensuring that our military know they are loved and supported during and after their deployment into harms way.
A community of Angels work daily to provide aid and comfort to our military and their families. Join the many Soldiers’ Angels to ensure that no soldier goes unloved. If you would like to assist in adopting a Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine or know of one who wishes to receive mail and care packages from home, please visit our projects page.
