Hi, my husband is over in Iraq right now. We're out of Fort Hood. 4th I.D.If you would like I could get some information for you. His battalion is right up in the action, 1-67 Armor. They are in Baquaba, Northeast of Baghdad. If there is any information at all you would like me to get I would try and get it for you. By the way the soldiers do still receive packages. People sometimes inspect them but they do send them.

Operation Care Package

I would really like to get in on this. I just found out my cousin was shot the other day...and it really made things seem so much clearer. Please pm me or email me a [email protected] or [email protected]tmail.com and let me know what I can do. Also names and addresses of Soliders would be welcome to send letters and personalized care packages to these men and women who may have special needs or may just want something a lil different. Thanks y'all for giving us the oppertunity to help.
And God Bless the men and women of the armed services...Your continued efforts against terrorism is a wonderful blessing to our country and you give this generations children someone brave to look up to.
:) :D :cool:

We tried to start this up when Afghanistan first got going, but had some problems getting addresses etc. So I got with another board member and sent a few packages to a guy I knew who was over there.

I am beginning to think that another website I found is a better idea due to trying to find addresses etc. it is

I don't know how old this is or if you guys have already sent stuff to the military....but I am currently in Kuwait working directly for the 160th Signal Brigade. I send my teams up north for installations of "stuff". If you guys are still needing addresses feel free to ask. Whatever site you need...I have the address. My current APO is: HHC 160th Sig Bde, APO AE 09366. I will do as much as possible to get these guys anything extra. Right now we aren't allowed to leave the base...so it would be good to get stuff for these guys/gals from anyone and everyone. Definatly helps their moral!!! Here's my e-mail address if you guys are still interested. [email protected].

KEEP UP THE SUPPORT....IT MEANS ALOT TO THE MILITARY HERE!!!

Iraq - Bagdhad

If ya'll are still sending stuff, I can provide an address for Victory Base - Iraq. It is where I'm at now. I am a contractor but would be more then happy to distribute it to the troops in my area.

Be advised though, that they do get care packages from families and other donors and typically do not write back to say "thanks", due to being busy. Plus, most are too young to realize how much of a pain in the arse it is getting stuff together. Not to mention the S&H costs. :)

Good Items -
Gatorade & Koolaid (sp?)
Coffee - Coffee Creamer (powder) - Coffee Filters
Snacky things (sunflower seeds, chips, cookies, etc..sealed packages though)
Tissues
TP (Not John Wayne)
Baby Wipes
Travel bathroom products (Or trial size stuff)

Well, that is about all I can think of right at the moment. I know the above stuff will get used for sure. Just remember, always sealed packages.

Take care,
Ceyko

My first post here, just joined the site I am stationed in California, and just got back from OIF II-1. They are going to be a little busy over the next few days, but I know the unit I was with, they appreciated bulk mail and it was never a problem.

Oh and to the person that said something about pogues and REMF's, you really need to watch your mouth, lot of those REMF's are making sure the frontline guy's are getting the ammo to make those guns and tanks go bang, and I am frontline myself also.

This idea rules, I would be interested in contributing.

Has anyone thought of going to a recruiting office to see if the guys there have any suggestions on the best way to go about doing somethinglike this?

I saw on TV this morning that the US gov is asking citizens to stop sending UNSOLICITED letters and packages. I think this means we need to have a direct person to send stuff to.
Can you elaborate Larry?
if you need a direct contact let me know. i am currently here in iraq and i have about 50 people with me plus an entire motor pool. if you haven't guessed yes i am a mechanic. pm me to get my address and i will gladly pass anything out you send me.

what the soldiers really need

hello all, if you really wish to help any soldiers, you can go to anysoldier.com and adopt a soldier from the web site, you can see their profiles, and a list of what they need. batteries are not needed, that seemed to be the most commonly listed thing on the site, i am at F.O.B. Marez in Mosul, and we have about 30,000 aaa, 41,000 aa, and tons of kodak 3volts. big things are beef jerky, snacks that are small and can be eaten quick.candy is great, the stuff we get is usually from Turkey, or Syria. we have tons of gum and baby wipes in fact if you need some we will send you boxes full of them.the biggest thing we need is support at home, even a simple letter of thanks goes a long way. i have been here 11 months and some change, i am now awaiting my flight back to Ft. Lewis WA. i get out in sept 06 and will be back in dallas. thanks to you all for the thought and desire to help it makes the job we do worth the price we sometimes pay. Spc. Joseph Cox 1st Bat. 24th infantry regiment 1st brigade 25 infantry division.

I disagree. Batteries from the states are sooooo needed. It really depends on where you are and what resource you have available at that particular FOB. If you buy them at the PX they may last a few days or maybe a week.

Duece is correct. The best thing to do is adopt a service member and find out what that particular individuals needs are :)
