About Soldiers' Angels Kansas City

Soldiers' Angels Kansas City is a group of Kansas Citians that belong to Soldiers' Angels. As individuals we adopt deployed soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and coast guard to provide letters, care packages and other needs as requested. As a group, we work in our communities to bring awareness of Soldiers' Angels and how other individuals, organizations and corporations can support our troops.

The Soldiers' Angels was started by a self-described ordinary mother of an ordinary young man turned hero, Sgt. Brandon Varn. Brandon was deployed in Iraq and has since honorably completed his mission and has returned back to his proud and loving family.

In the summer of 2003, he wrote home expressing his concern that some soldiers did not receive any mail or support from home. Being a caring and loving mother, she decided not to allow a situation like that to continue. She contacted a few friends and extended family to ask if they would write to a soldier or two. Within a few short months, Soldiers' Angels went from a mother writing a few extra letters to an Internet Community with thousands of angels worldwide.

With more and more merchants donating services, money and items for packages, the Angels reorganized as a 501 c 3 non-profit so all donations would be tax deductible. Soldiers' Angels currently supports thousands of American Service Members stationed wherever we raise our Country's Flag and the number is growing daily.

Soldiers' Angels
are dedicated in supporting our military during and after their deployment.

In December of 2004 a worldwide support forum was created. In hopes of providing a place where needs of our heroes can be fulfilled. In July 2006 This ordinary mothers youngest son, Bretton Varn started Boot Camp and looks forward to serving his country.

May God Bless Our Troops

- May no soldier go unloved
May no soldier walk alone
May no soldier be forgotten
Until they all come home
