If you wish to participate, fill out a “New Supporter Application” which is also found under the same menu tab of the website.

Donations to support our Heroes:

Credit card donations can be made on the main page of the website under “Donate” in the menu section.  All donations will be acknowledged with a letter and tax I.D. number. The AdoptaPlatoon program sends on-going quality of life care packages from our Troop Support Warehouse daily. Please become a member of our Team and ensure that our U.S. Troops are never forgotten and that they have the extra support and goodies that make their deployments better and assist in raising morale. If you wish to send a donation check directly to us, use the address noted above. All donations are formally recognized and are tax deductible. We would not be able to do this work without the assistance and generosity of the American people and we and our Troops are deeply grateful.

For our Troops’ safety, please do not send products for us to send to the Troops.
