Whether you are deployed on the war front or healing on the home front, you can request a civilian Battle Buddy to sponsor mission-related supplies. Many Americans want to assist you, and Troops Need You listens and delivers the supplies you request.
On the home front, healing warriors have requested and received laptop computers, furniture, truck payments, baby strollers, travel expenses, home appliances and game systems for themselves and their families.
From the war front, deployed units have requested medical and school supplies, water purification systems, sports league equipment, children's clothing and even specialized weapon cleaning kits.
To see what your fellow service members have requested, take a look at the current profile pages. As you see, we publish a minimal amount of information to protect your privacy.
