     The Adopt A Soldier Program was initiated in January 2005 by Boy Scout Troop 264 in Brookeville-Olney, Maryland.  The 60+ scouts and their families express their appreciation for our military personnel, both home and abroad, by sending letters of encouragement and care packages with a few comforts of home.

Since its inception, over 150 soldiers, three K9 units, and the TerpVets Student Veterans organization at the University of Maryland, College Park, have been adopted by the scout families.  More than 500 care packages and hundreds of letters have been sent.

Boy Scout Troop 264 has been assisted by, and has received donations from various Cub Scout, Girl Scout and Brownie Troops, and other local organizations.  We thank all who have contributed and those who continue to participate in our mission to support our troops.

Anyone who would like to learn more about supporting the Adopt A Soldier Program may contact Mrs. Josey Simpson at

Your participation in our Adopt A Soldier Program is very important and your efforts are greatly appreciated.  Please continue to keep the young men and women who sacrifice so much for your freedom and for our country in your thoughts, in your prayers and in your hearts.

God Bless America ... Land of the Free ... Because of the Brave
