How can you help our nonprofit send care packages to some of the most remote of the roughly 225,000 U.S. military troops serving overseas in 2015?

1) Donate Financially - Our greatest need is cash for our mailing costs. With no paid staff, we strive to maximize the use of donations. We are a 501(c)(3) charity, so your gifts are tax deductible.

You can donate via our mobile website - m.airborneangelcadets.com, or via credit card through our Click and Pledge account.

2) Donate Goods - Our all-volunteer charity is based in the Dallas area, but receives product donations from across the USA for care packages for our Soldiers and Troops overseas. We kindly request that you contact us at support@airborneangelcadets.com before sending any care package goods.

2015 Memorial Day Message from Chaplain in Iraq

One of our great care package distributors in 2015 has been a wonderful Chaplain in Iraq. Photos and excerpts of a recently received Memorial Day letter from this Chaplain are shown below. The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are proud to support our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in Iraq and the Mideast with care packages.  About half of our June care packages were shipped to U.S. troops in Iraq.
