Supporting our Heroes from home, so they can win the War overseas!
Welcome to a New Year !
We are thrilled to see troops home from Iraq. We are sad to see many more deploy out to Africa, Afghanistan and other parts of the Middle East. Please do not think they do not need our support. They still need to know we care and they are still in combat areas fighting for freedom!
Unfortunately with the new year brings new postage rates. As of Jan 27th a lg flate rate box will cost $14.85 to mail to all FPO and APO addresses. This is a $1.40 increase per box.
We hold adopt a box events. Customers can pick up a ready to go care package and take it to customer service and mail it for $14.85. However we can print labels from home office and only pay $13.30 to mail these. So we try hard to save the extra money with asking for actual donations for postage.
If you are a parent or friend of a troop in combat, you may set up an online acct at www.usps.com and print postage labels for your care packages, and you can request USPS to pick the care packages up from your address. Be careful when printing these. There are rules that follow with them and they cannot be used after a specific date of printing.
We update our web site often. Please visit often for the most current information, pictures, letters, and more!
US Troop Support Foundation is a non profit, non political Grass roots 501 (c) (3) foundation.
Also known as USTSF, US Troop Support Foundation was started in Jan 2003 by the parents of a young Marine deploying. Initially a small group of friends and family, then to a parented foundation, then in 2006 to a non profit public foundation standing on its own.
US Troop Support Foundation is an all volunteer foundation. No one gets paid. USTSF keeps more than 99% going to the program, supporting the troops!
USTSF supports all branches and is happy to add any military person serving in a combat area to our list.

As of Jan 2009 : We will no longer be listed with America Supports You, a DOD site.
America Supports You was under investigation and found to have misaprropriated more than 9 million dollars in funds. WE DO NOT WANT TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH ANYONE that would do that to our Troops! Please copy and paste the following link and read the news article on this.
We tried for 6 months to contact someone, anyone , at ASY to see what was going on and could get no contact. More than 6 months later they reorganized and contacted us. This is not satisfactory ! WE CHOSE TO DROP OFF THEIR LIST !
Unfortunately we do NOT have educational grants or assistance available.
