Meet Our Board
At Secret Soldiers, We couldn't do what we do without the help of some very special people. Read about the people who make it happen.
Nicole Bratlee - President & Founder
Founder Nicole Bratlee started the charity in the spring of 2020, after a realization that many deployed service members do not receive any mail, nor care packages, which can have a negative impact worsening the chance of developing PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) that can result in the service member committing suicide. Which in turn, we as civilians need to help to stop! 22 a day; 22 suicides a day is too many. Active duty service men and women currently commit suicide at a rate of 187 daily.

Bryant Chambers - Spokesperson
Morale is everything on the battlefield. Being away from home and family in a place where people want you dead is a nightmare.
Receiving Care Packages reminds you there are loved ones who want you to come home safe.
Secret Soldiers Is a lifeline that brings a little bit of hope to the battlefield.
Ken Perry - Advertising
Born and raised in Texas and Louisiana. Proud Veteran of the US Air Force.
Secret Soldiers is an amazing organization. Having been deployed myself I know how recieving letters and care packages helps boost morale. It also lets our deployed service members now that they are loved and we appreciate their sacrifice. Love, Honor and Respect to all our Millitary Services.

Randy Olivaz - Board Member
I am a 10 year veteran of the United States Marine Corps. As a staff seargeant and a father of one, soon to be three Active Duty children, Secret Soldiers is important to me because of the mission, TO HELP. Since i was released from active duty i wanted to be a part of something like this. The brotherhood and sisterhood is truly incredible. The support active duty service member recieve greatly affect their morale and psyche when they are in anf when they get out. 22 veterans are lost a day to suicide, we need to bring this number to 0. Anything that we can do to help this is incredible. Semper Fi.
