Okay. I baked cookies today to send to a friend of mine who is deployed. I'm thinking CrazCoffey can help me, but I thought I'd see if there's anyone else who might be able to as well. All I can get out of him is that whatever I want to send is fine. Well, so far I've got a ton of cookies (about 4-5 dozen) heading his way. Anyone ever been deployed who knows what type of stuff you'd like to get from home? And please keep in mind that this is just a friend. So no panties...lol.

Oh, and nothing too heavy. Thank goodness he's got an APO address. International postage doesn't apply. I just have to fit it into a flat rate box.

Porn mags.

My understanding is that they don't want people sending any kind of girlie magazines, even stuff like Maxim. The host countries frown on that kind of thing.

Some things you can send though can be found on this webpage (http://thefuntimesguide.com/2005/09/soldierpackages.php).

Sheet sets. When my best friend was in Iraq, he requested that people send twin-size sheet sets for his troops. Apparently they aren't standard issue, or at least weren't a couple of years ago.

add to it, wet wipes, batteries, duct tape, card games, smokes (even if he doesn't smoke, he may trade them for something from a fellow solider) and forget what Pat said, send the magazines, F the host country. It's a myth that they "inspect" the packages, it will never leave US control. The only sensitive part is just throwing the mag on the side of the road. But anything with current US gossip/jokes/news, is good stuff. Hell, People and entertainment mags are good too. Maybe a novel, if he's into that too.

Bingo. Lots of chewing gum, Jolly Rancher candy, AA batteries, cards, etc. Powdered Gatoride/drink mixes are also very big. And you can never send enough baby wipes and chap stick, especially this time of year.

I had a friend deployed a couple years back and we sent him & his men boxes of hygiene related stuff...and candy. We just went to the aisle of Walmart where they sell the travel sized toothpaste/mouthwash/foot powder/etc and loaded up. He was actually just deployed again so we'll send him another package. Another thing he asked for that we sent was socks.

I could give two shits what you think of my attitude, I think you took my comment a bit "too DC", personally, so F you! LOL, you should just try to relax some. I meant it more like, "sheeeez who cares if they don't like nudy mags, send me one or two and I'll take care of making sure I don't leave it on the side of a road somewhere".

besides, I'll probably be taking my Judeo-Christian Bible and they probably don't like that either, but - F 'em anyway....

To add to the "basic stuff" - I was just thinking of a few specific ones;

Hair Clippers, cool little gadgets from Bass Pro Shop (field&stream, Cabela's, etc, like maybe a cool little flashlight). Copy all your MP3 files on a cheap little MP3 player, surely there's at least one soldier in his unit that doesn't have his own access to music. a small DVD/TV and a bunch of the cheap old movies from the 1-2 dollar bin. Be creative, anything we take for granted over here, we miss over there.

Bug repelent also. On my sons first tour I sent some bottled water with half of them filled with top self vodka. He did not get the chance to drink often but a couple times while at the FOB when he knew they would not have a mission they would tip a cup. This tour he told me not to send any as he has troops under his watch and will not drink.

I also sent him a tournament dart board and four sets of darts.They wore it out and I ended up sending him another one. You can get a quality board for around 60 bucks and a decent set of darts for around 20 bucks. Two of the sets I sent were higher end around 45 dollars. If you do send them darts send plenty of replacement flights and shafts.

My brother is deploying again in a couple of days.


I've been told things they can't get there are good. Last time, he said they had piles of candy, and its very hot, so alot of that stuff melted in shipping.

Homemade cookies were a hit. We also sent things like Dried fruit which they liked on patrols, grass scented candle gives a smell of home. I think pictures, letters, movies and things like that went well to. Apple juice bottles make a good container for crown royal.

It really depends where they are....if they're on a large base, they'll have different needs than if they're stuck out in some remote FOB.

Where did you get "morality police" from, genius? It has nothing to do with my version of morality or what I think the troops should or should not be doing. I'm just passing along what I've been told by people in the military.

It all depends on where your friend is and what his living circumstances are.

In Iraq, by and large, all the troops have moved into the big bases where they live in little shipping containers called CHUs (containerized housing units). It's not as bad as it sounds - it's decent living with AC, the whole nine yards.

For living on the large bases, I would say things like little adhesive hooks that can be put on the walls are always good for them to hang up towels, laundry bags, etc.

Dry Swiffer sheets are a help for clean up of the hooch, as well as paper towels. Some anti-bacterial wipes also help to minimize the crap in the office (if they work in one) and in the room. They sometimes have them for sale at the PX, but it's nice not to have to go pay for that stuff.

Maybe a little carpeted welcome mat or a small rug for them to set their feet on in the morning - the rooms are just solid linoleum floor, or concrete in the tents, so it's a bit more homey to step on carpet when you wake up.

T-shirts they can wear when they are off duty are very cool - especially if it's of their team or school, etc. Wearing military stuff 24/7 is just a pain.

Movies or maybe video games are always welcome, as are magazines. I wouldn't tread into the porno area, that type of stuff is inspected periodically, depending on where they are and the energy of the postal unit. Maxim-type stuff is fine, though. Really, any magazine will do. It's just a way to break up the time.

If they are out in the sticks in Afghanistan, they would need some more outdoor-oriented stuff. I've heard that flea collars to hang on their belts are more effective than bug spray to keep the critters off. Suntan lotion is also good.

I would just pay attention to the little things you have at home that you go get routinely at Wal-Mart or Target and may take for granted. Try to replicate it for your friend, and he'll be very grateful.

The post office has a deal with boxes where you can get a flat-rate box to send for $10.99. There is no weight limit - whatever you can fit into it can be sent. I'd check into that if you are going to routinely send boxes to deployed folks.

Hope this helps.

The post office has a deal with boxes where you can get a flat-rate box to send for $10.99. There is no weight limit - whatever you can fit into it can be sent. I'd check into that if you are going to routinely send boxes to deployed folks.

Hope this helps.

THe flat rate box is actually $10.35.

I've been involved in sending care packages to the troops over at the Coalition. Big hits with the troops not mentioned so far....Beef Jerkey, board games(chess) and dartboards(for the outlying posts).

Go over to the Coalition and do a search. There are many threads with pictures of the goods sent.

You want some money to buy some more "stuff" let me know.

Okay, so I finally have a few ideas. He said not to really worry about hygeine products and such, because he can get those where he's at. He did mention that Little Debbie Snack Cakes are not amonst the junk food available over there. Of course, I'll include a variety of those in the next package.

The one thing he seems to miss the most is grass. He gets sick of sand. I thought about getting a miniature flower pot, some soils, and some grass seed to send over. Think that will make it to him?

As long as you're sending him grass, instead of grass.

It will be in a clearly marked unopened package, if i can find any grass seed packages that small. May have to go with herbs or something

Well shit, it's not like I can simply run down to the corner drugstore and pick up an ounce of weed.

Just sent package two. This one had a Playboy, a Hustler, a Penthouse, a Sports Illustrated (the one with Tim Tebow on the cover since he's a Florida fan), a rain scented candle, an indor grass growing kit, some chapstick, and a shitload of Little Debbie Snack Cakes.

He actually sent me a package from over there. It contained a mug that says Operation Iraqi Freedom, two small teddy bears with shirts that say Hugs & Kisses from Mosul, Iraq, a Mosul, Irag t-shirt and hat, and a cool Army t-shirt.
