If you are interested in sending a care package to troops overseas, please send me a pm. I have had a few questions about people sending money so that i could put together care packages for troops in Iraq and Afganistan right now and i will gladly do it. iff you would like to send a donation to help out, i do have paypal or i will take a check, as long as it isnt made of rubber. if you would like to use paypal, send me a PM and i will send you the info. Also if there is anything in particular or special that you would like included in the care packages, just let me know and i will be sure it is in there. Depending on the response i get, i would like to start sending them weekly. I know of plenty of troops in Iraq and Afghanistan that would like to receive care packages. This post is in refreence to the post that the LT put on here.

I like what you are doing here. The troops need as much support as they can get. I'd love to help but we are tight on funds as my buisness is close to bankrupt. A good friend of mine was deployed 6 days before christmas and we send him packages with extra for whoever he wants to have it. Again thanks for what you are doing and if things turn around we'll send some money.

Matt, I see that you are helping. My funds arent that great either but will help out anyways, Ill just go without a steak and eat baloney sandwiches for a few night, wont kill me, could stand to lose a few pounds anyways.

Hey LT, i will get a package together this weekend and get it sent out. dont know how long it will take to get there, you know how the military is. if i remember correctly when i was in Afghanistan and i would get a package set out it took right around 4 days to get there. so maybe by mid next week you gus will start seeing them show up.

as soon as my wife gets it she will send you a confirmation. and there is no need to thank me. i just happen to be the one with available resources and figured i could take care of it. make it less of a hassle on others.

I've been sending care packages for a long time now. As requested, I send a lot of foot powder and dry Gatorade. I have hit our local grocery stores up to donate the Gatorade and I go to the Dollar Store and buy out all the foot powder they have in stock. I get the boxes from the post office where I can send as much as I can get in the box for one price. It works out a little cheaper that way.

It's great to do the packages with the one price box for those that do. The two times I've sent stuff, it wouldn't fit in those boxes.

I appreciate the time and effort Joey and his wife are going to. I also have more confidence in them knowing what they might want over there better than I.

Whatever we do, I believe that showing our appreciation in whatever way we can is important.

Well we went shoping today and picked up some good stuff for Brother Hilljacks Platoon. I will be sending it out tommorow. Thanks to everyone who has contributed thus far. We would like to do this once a week or so, possibly to various other forward deployed troops, so if anyone else would like to contribute please let us know. Here are a few pics of what we picked up today.
