Group Request Form

To ensure that packages arrive in time, we only accept requests for troops who are currently deployed and will remain in country/at sea at least three months beyond the request date.


Individuals and Units of Fewer than Five: Click here to send a request for each individual

Units of Five or More:
1) Click here to access the Excel request form to submit your roster. When the window opens, click on “Save.” Name the file using the first line of the unit’s mailing address, and then “Save To” an appropriate place on your computer.

2) Fill in all information on the Excel request form:

  • Rank is used for our internal ID purposes to rule out duplicate requests; rank will not be on the mailing label.
  • Due to security and confidentiality concerns, we can only accept lists of names from a military member of the deployed unit.  The “Submitter” email in Column I of the Group Request Form needs to be of a military POC (Point of Contact) deployed with the unit.
