First Response Backpacks

The Soldiers' Angels have adopted the Combat Support Hospitals in Iraq and all the Military hospitals worldwide. Soldiers’ Angels Germany supports the patients at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. See About Medical Evacuations to Germany.

The First Response Backpacks include a t-shirt, get well card, Blanket of Hope, underwear, socks, etc. Receiving these items from everyday Americans provides a level of personal support that has a very positive impact on a patient´s morale, and therefore on the recovery process.

Please send all items to:

Attn: Soldiers' Angels

Please notify us when items are shipped.
- Include a note with your name, Email address, and short description of items sentin your packages. Without this information, we regret we will not be able to confirm their receipt.
- Allow 6 - 8 weeks for receipt confirmation.

First of all, I want to thank you for the great support you have given us in the form of the Soldiers' Angels Backpacks. Soldiers really appreciate the thoughtfulness that goes in to filling and providing one of the backpacks.

One soldier recently told me that if it were not for the backpack and its contents he would have had nothing to wear except a hospital gown all weekend until he could have gotten off the ward and down to the chaplain’s closet.

Thanks again for your thoughtfulness and support.

This information is current as of June 2009.
