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.

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.

2,300 California-based Marines just deployed to the Middle East

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are proud to have mailed a large number of care packages to U.S. Marines of the SPMAGTF (Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force) in Iraq in 2015 and early 2016.

And the Marine Corps Times (4/22/2016) reports that another rotation of 2,300 California-based U.S. Marines with the SPMAGTF are just now arriving in Iraq and the Middle East. These Marines are deployed in some tough areas, and really appreciate the care packages.

"As with those they’re replacing, the Marines will be on station to launch airstrikes, train Iraqi soldiers, beef up security at embassies and remote military outposts, and recover downed aircraft and pilots at a moment’s notice. They’ll also work alongside U.S. regional allies, training them for the fight."

"Members of 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines will be the ground combat element of the task force, with air support from squadrons of the 2nd and 3rd Marine Aircraft Wings. They’ll be led by the 5th Marine Regiment with Combat Logistics Battalion 5 lending logistical support."

"Speaking to troops in Baghdad on Monday, Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced an increased role for the U.S. military, including additional advisers, attack helicopters and rocket artillery."

If you are looking for an opportunity to support the troops with care packages, we would greatly welcome product or financial donations that can help us continue to ship care packages to U.S. military troops serving overseas.
