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.

8,400 U.S. Troops to remain in Afghanistan through the start of 2017

President Obama announced today that the U.S. would not draw down the troop levels in Afghanistan to a previously planned 5,500 troops by the end of 2016.  Instead, the U.S. will keep 8,400 American troops in Afghanistan into 2017.  Future troop level decisions in 2017 will be the responsibility of the incoming President.

New York Times article, "Obama Puts Off Drawdown of U.S. Troops in Afghanistan":

"President Obama said on Wednesday that he would leave 8,400 American troops in Afghanistan until the end of his term, further slowing the drawdown in a 14-year war that Mr. Obama had pledged to end but now seems likely to grind on indefinitely."

"The United States currently has slightly fewer than 10,000 troops in Afghanistan who train and equip Afghan forces and carry out counterterrorism operations. Mr. Obama had left open the option of reducing that number to 5,500 by the end of 2016 or early 2017.


The volunteers of the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas continue to send care packages to our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in Afghanistan (and many other remote areas).  If you are looking for a way to brighten the lives of U.S. Troops overseas with some care packages, our all-volunteer nonprofit would greatly welcome your product or financial donations.
