Sergeant Brian Horn was serving with the 173rd Airborne Brigade in the Kirkuk area of Iraq as a sniper team leader when he started the idea of Any Soldier® to help care for his soldiers. He agreed to distribute packages that came to him with "Attn: Any Soldier" in his address to soldiers who didn't get mail.

Brian later completed a tour in Afghanistan and is now home, but continues larger than ever. Due to overwhelming requests, in January 2004 the Any Soldier® effort was expanded to include any member of the Armed Forces in harms way:

Christmastime, or ANY time! The troops are always grateful to get Care Packages, and they NEED THE STUFF!!!
