Soldiers stationed at FOB Bostick, Afghanistan

Dear AdoptaPlatoon, I just wanted to send you a thank you for the gift bags that we recently passed out to our Soldiers.  I am attaching a photo of a couple of our folks receiving theirs. The support from Adopt-a-platoon has been awesome and overwhelming.  We really appreciate all of the care and support that…

Thanks from the 104th Road Dawgs

We received the Halloween bags and they are wonderful.  We passed them out to all the Soldiers and we still have more to pass out at our Haunted House.  Thank You so much for the help!!  Tell everyone who helped we are really indebted to the AdoptaPlatoon organization. Truly a blessing… Deployed to Afghanistan Many…

Valley Morning Start Spotlight: Attention to detail: Ida Hagg

For Ida Hagg, what started with a package to her son in Bosnia soon turned into a national movement.  Today, Adopt a Platoon sends tens of thousands of care packages to U.S. troops across the globe.  From a warehouse in Lozano, the former Rio Hondo High School teacher launched an organization that’s grown into one of the largest grassroots supporters of America’s service men and women. 

 After her son joined the Army in 1997, Hagg mailed a care package to him in the mountains of Bosnia.  “He started writing me letters,” she said.
