Many maintenance personnel in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the Mideast are often finding a hard time being supplied with common hardware tools and supplies (folding pocket knives, mechanic's gloves, flashlights, etc.).
"The saw and gloves came today - thanks again to all your volunteers who are helping out. We can't thank all of you enough!"
"The drills and flashlight and batteries arrived today - thank you for sending them! These came at just the right time, as we are beginning the repairs to our facility."
Dear Airborne Angel Cadets,
Chaplain (Black Sea Area Support Team)
|The care packages brought smiles to the faces of this Marine and Soldier.|
As a long time employee of Delta Air Lines, I am ecstatic to be able to join many of our other volunteers and call my company a proud supporter of our efforts.
The patriotic owners and employees of Squadron are proud supporters of the U.S. Military! We also had fun meeting many modeling enthusiasts who were big supporters of our American troops! Thank you Squadron for supporting our care package mission!

It is incredibly hot in the Middle East during the summer months. U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Africa also deal with many months of very hot temperatures. So the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas often include care package items that will help our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deal with the heat.
If anyone has these type donations for our U.S. troops overseas, we would welcome your inquiry. Some of the summer care package items we are collecting:
Powdered drink mixes to add nutrients/taste to water - ZipFizz, Mio, Gatorade, Crystal Light, etc.
"Thank you so very much for the care packages that you sent to support our unit. It is greatly appreciated. All the time, effort, energy and money put into them is such an expression of kindness and it is greatly appreciated by us. So thank you, thank you."
"I have to tell you, I am a HUGE Dallas Cowboys fan & I love the state of TX ... And I've been a Dallas Cowboys fan my whole life. Grew up watching football and they have always been my team. Thank you TX for all the love!"
The troops love to follow their favorite sports teams back home, and like to receive sporting or recreational goods in their care packages. We would welcome inquiries from any company, organization or individual who can donate footballs, soccer balls, basketballs, or team branded clothing or memorabilia (t-shirts, caps, mugs, cups, towels, balls, etc.). We had one family donate a bunch of nice footballs last year, and those were a big hit with the troops.
