The USASOA 'BOOTS ON THE GROUND' campaign was established nearly 5 years ago as a grassroots effort to procure the personal items and other necessities needed most by our ill, injured and wounded at Walter Reed Military Hospital. Since then, USASOA and our volunteers have been able to collect and distribute tens of thousands of dollars in goods and services to our wounded servicemembers and their families. 

Please consider making a donation of one of the items in the list below. If you are able to do more, please do so. The items can be mailed to our office - please consider using Amazon Smile as USASOA is charity-associated. For larger orders, we will arrange to pick them up from your home or office in the DC Metro area

Mailing address:

In addition, for the past 2 years, USASOA has partnered with Giant Foods to hold a monthly BOOTS ON THE GROUND campaign in front of their stores during the warmer months. Upon entering the store, our volunteers hand their customers a card with a list of the items most needed by our wounded at Walter Reed. We ask them to please consider making a purchase of one or several of the items and to drop them off at our table in front of the store as they leave.
