I recently went on a search for a way to “adopt” a soldier who was serving our country. I personally know the sacrifices that these soldiers make when they have to leave their loves ones behind. So, I was ready to follow my belief that these troops can use all the support they can get from “back home”. In the search there are several sites that were designed for dating. That wasn’t what I wanted (as we’ve already discovered that I’m not quiet ready for that yet). So, I kept looking around checking out places on the internet that will connect you with soldiers without being a dating site. Eventually I found “Soldier’s Angels”.
I read over the website quiet a few times and did some research before I decided to make the decision to sign up. But in the end, I decided to go ahead and sign up. Initially I was just an Associate Angel (free). However, there are many more ways to support when you become verified. Which, I went ahead and did in the end so I could “adopt” a soldier to write and send care packages to. I then asked for a soldier to adopt. It wasn’t long before I got the information for a hero.
Obviously, I wont be saying to much about my hero here. Their privacy is the most important thing. However, I will kind of talk about my adventure of “adoption” without telling anything about the hero. I’m really excited to be supporting a wonderful hero. I have managed to email back and forth a few times and the first letter is written and will be sent tomorrow. I’m kind of glad, that right now, my hero has access to email. They don’t always have access to a computer or phone. Sometimes their days are long and they don’t have a lot of time to write back. But as of right now, my hero has bee able to write by email a few times.
So, do YOU have some time to share some support with our soldiers who are serving our country? There are lots of way besides adopting to show support… go check out “Soldiers Angels” and start giving some support from back home!
