How to adopt a US military unit. Adopting a military unit can be as simple as sending packages or letters, or actually meeting the day to day needs of the folks who are at home from the folks who are deployed overseas. Most units have a very easy way to get involved. Simply go to their website and look for a contact link. Some unit's web pages even have an "adopt a unit" link right on their page. You can join an organization like the USO which is a private, non-profit, whose mission is to support our troops by providing morale, welfare and recreation type services to our men and women in the uniform. Our boys and girls who are deployed face special problems that some of us can't even imagine. Boosting their morale through the simple gestures can make a world of difference and it can put their focus where it belongs, on the mission in front of them. There are websites like "" that facilitate the sending of letters and other items to our soldiers, and sending something even to someone deployed overseas is still the same cost as it would be to send something to a friend right here in the US. Some cities and other local governments who have a strong military presence like a base who will also have links on their websites to get you involved. Sometimes it's as simple as calling a base near your house, someone there will be glad to help and they'll be really happy that you care to take the step. And the man or woman in uniform that feels you're concerned, they're going to appreciate it so much.
