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.

American sailor not forgotten in Iraq

QUOTE
I want to take a moment and thank you for your support. We are a small group of active duty sailors operating out of Umm Qasr, Iraq.   It's comforting to know that we are not completely forgotten over here. I realize the American public probably thinks that we are "not" in Iraq, but I assure you that we are indeed still here.

Thank you again and I hope this letter finds all of the Airborne Cadets in great health and a satisfying life.  Thank you sincerely, Kevin

The original handwritten message is a bit hard to read, so a digitized translation is shown above. The original (received February, 2013) can be seen below (click on image to enlarge). The U.S. military doesn't have a large number of troops in Iraq, but the troops that are deployed play a vital role in training Iraqi troops, performing logistical support related to supplies and equipment, protecting U.S. Government personnel, and other strategic missions.
