Any Soldier Inc. started in August 2003 as a simple family effort to help the soldiers in one Army unit, thus our name. However, due to overwhelming requests, on 1 January 2004 the Any Soldiertm effort was expanded to include any member, of any of the Armed Services, in harm’s way. Today, Any Soldier Inc. now helps many American Troops in all branches of the military, both active duty and reservists, and has become one of the leading efforts in making sure the men and women who have been deployed for the wars are cared for, via letters and packages from "home."
To date, AnySoldier.com -- and its related websites, AnyMarine, AnyAirman, AnySailor, and AnyCoastGuardsman -- have served over 2 million troops stationed in many locations (Current info HERE). The men and women in service come from many states and countries -- the vast majority from the USA, but also from such places as England, Italy, Germany, and Japan. Visitors to AnySoldier.com can search for contacts by service location, where the unit comes from, the number of males or females in the group (some supporters prefer to write to "Attn: Any Female Soldier"), and the number of times their address has been requested -- among other options.
The response has overwhelmed the recipients, as well. AnySoldier updates from the men and women in service express gratitude, joy and awe at the support they receive. Unit leaders, in particular, write about the contribution AnySoldiermakes to their troops:
