Soldiers' Angels

"May no soldier go unloved"

The non-profit organization Soldiers' Angels was founded by a mother of two soldiers Patti Patton-Bader in the summer of 2003. After hearing that some of the men and women that served with her eldest son did not recieve any care packages or letters from home. Which greatly disturbed her and felt that she needed to do something about it. And thus Soldiers' Angels was born.
Headquarters- Pasadena CA.
"To provide aid and comfort to the men
and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard,
and their families and to enable our volunteers to improve the lives of
a growing veteran population." -Patti Patton-Bader

The purpose of Soldiers' Angels is to provide care, hope, and love for the men and women that serve our country and their families. There is a lot of different thing they do. One is their "sewing team" where volunteers make an assortment of different things such as pillow cases, blankets, scarfs, pillow cases, and an assortment of crochets. A reason is to help the wounded feel more comfortable in the hospitals they are staying at.Yet another great thing they are doing is giving people an oppurtunity to adopt a military family for the holidays. Providing help such as sending gift cards to help the family buy food or presents for their child or just buy presents themselves. They can also just invite the family over for dinner or whatever they prefer. Anyone can sign up to help out in anyway they want there a numerous ways in which you can help by helping the families communicate with deployed loved ones, help the families out financialy, give the ones that are deployed hope and appreciation, and just multiple ways. To many ways to even list them all. Its a great cause if anyone wants to learn more about it heres the website-

A SoldierI was
with that which others did not want to be, I went to where others feared to
go, and did what others failed to do. I asked nothing of those who gave
nothing, and reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal loneliness that I
feel. I have seen the face of terror, felt the stinging cold of fear,
And enjoyed the sweet taste of a moments love. I have cried pain and
hope, But most of all I have lived times others would say were best
forgotten. At least some day I'll
be able to say, That I was proud what I was, A Soldier.
