Sunday, March 15, 2009 Supporting Deployed Military Troops

On April 11, 2008, I wrote a blog post on showing support for deployed military troops that included a paragraph about

Yesterday I got an email from someone who has adopted a soldier through this organization, and I decided to give more exposure to this organization. Here's the story about this organization:
Sergeant Brian Horn from LaPlata, Maryland, an Army Infantry Soldier with the 173rd Airborne Brigade was in the Kirkuk area of Iraq when he started the idea of Any Soldier® to help care for his soldiers. He agreed to distribute packages that came to him with "Attn: Any Soldier®" in his address to soldiers who didn't get mail.
Brian later completed a tour in Afghanistan and is now home, and his sister, SPC Svetlana Horn, recently completed a tour in Iraq, but continues larger than ever.

Any Soldier Inc. started in August 2003 as a simple family effort to help the soldiers in one Army unit; thus, our name. Due to overwhelming requests, on 1 January 2004 the Any Soldier® effort was expanded to include any member of the Armed Forces in harm's way.
Check out the website now to learn how you can help.
