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.

Merle Haggard - The Fightin' Side of Me

In memory of the great country singer, Merle Haggard, the video below shows Merle and George Strait performing Merle's huge 1969 hit, The Fightn' Side of Me, at the 2014 ACM Salute to The Troops.

A portion of the lyrics:
I hear people talkin' bad, About the way we have to live here in this country,
Harpin' on the wars we fight, An' gripin' 'bout the way things oughta be.
An' I don't mind 'em switchin' sides, An' standin' up for things they believe in.
When they're runnin' down my country, man, They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Yeah, walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
Runnin' down the way of life, Our fightin' men have fought and died to keep.
If you don't love it, leave it: Let this song I'm singin' be a warnin'.
If you're runnin' down my country, man, You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
