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.

U.S. Marines headed back to Helmand Province, Afghanistan

In a Washington Post article (Jan. 6, 2017) titled "Thousands of Marines fought in southern Afghanistan. Now, the service is going back.", it is noted that about 300 U.S. Marines will be returning this spring to the dangerous Helmand Province region as part of Task Force Southwest.

The Marines will be replacing an Army unit, Task Force Forge, that has been working in Helmand Province. The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas have sent many care packages to Task Force Forge.

Part of the Task Force Southwest will be stationed at what was once called Camp Leatherneck. The General leading the mission says, "We’re not in any way viewing this as a noncombat mission or anything to take lightly.”  These U.S. Marines will be deployed in a volatile area and "could face combat".

There are currently about 8,400 American Troops in Afghanistan, and many other support personnel.

As new troops constantly rotate in and out, the care packages of the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are expected to reach several thousand U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in Afghanistan in 2017. We also ship care packages to Iraq and other remote locations, where basic amenities are sparse.

If you would like a simple way to support our men and women serving in remote locations with our Armed Forces overseas, we would welcome your financial donation to help our all-volunteer nonprofit continue sending care packages.
