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 2017?

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. We accept checks to Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas, P.O. Box 116691, Carrollton, TX 75011. You can donate 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.

One of our own returns

Rick Duplechin arrived safely back to FT. Hood on Sunday. Riding in 6 buses, the 206 soldiers formed in their platoons outside the gym and then ran in single file formation into the gym
while music was blasting and flags waving. When the soldiers were dismissed it was pure
chaos and joy seeing the families embrace and fathers seeing little ones for the first time.

We shook the hands of many of them with no family present and got to meet 2 members of Rick's platoon. Capt. Ladd and 1st SGT Garrett. Upon introducing myself and the group, Garrett said that my name was all over the place. He said they were so appreciative of the packages that we sent and for some of these soldiers it was the only thing they ever got.

At times, morale would be so low and then they would get a shipment and morale would go back up. The postal workers told them that the 7/6 CAV needed to get their own postal room.

He kept saying thank you and was getting teary eyed, which of course, made all of us teary eyed too. They gave our name to their replacement unit and hoped we wouldn't mind if they were to contact us. Rick said that the pinata that we sent last May stayed up in the chief sergents office as a mascot for quite some time.
