Thanks for all the support everyone! Care packages are great and the Soldiers love them since I always end up sharing. I appreciate all the time you take to prepare these packages. Thank you Wish I could spend more time on OT but I never have time to post. I still check it pretty often though.

thanks!
There's a basic list of what not to send floating out there somewhere. Basically don't send any of the following items:

anything pr0n related or sexual in nature
alcohol
religious propoganda
illegal weapons (i.e. double edged blades)

Most packages, including the ones I get, are inspected once they are opened so it's best not to send anything that will get the Soldier in trouble or embarrassed. Even sending condoms would raise a red flag... Yeah we live a sheltered life out here.
