About Us


Forgotten Soldiers Outreach (“FSO”) is a non-profit organization that requires donations, care package items and letters of encouragement in order to provide support to our deployed service members and their families serving in the United States Military. Our main focus is to reach those with our monthly “We Care” packages who receive little or no support from the home front. We aim to send “that little bit of home” to assure they are not forgotten. Since October 2003, Forgotten Soldiers Outreach has been and continues to be committed to our U.S. servicemen and women in all world theaters, for as long as they are deployed.

Please note: We are not a military location service, nor do we have the authority or capability to search for or find military personnel of any type. The only names and addresses we have are those that are specifically provided to us for our charitable purposes and are not available for release to the public.
