Care package to Afganistan

I'd like to put together a holiday care package to GSXR Nick in Afganistan.

Has anyone been saving their bike mags and care to donate them?

I'd like to send this out on Friday December 5th.

Get on board folks! Tis the season!
I will cover the cost of shipping as many boxes as we can put together.

If you want ideas let me know or perhaps the Vets in here can provide ideas.

Mike

might want to send it before that if you want to get it to him by the holiday.

used to take about 2 months to get stuff to my buddy in iraq.

The last 2 boxes I sent him took about a week.
Thanks for the heads up though

the military finally figured out this trickey new 'mail' thing huh? no shit! good for them.

I have been passing along my mags to a buddy who is looking to get a bike next season. I will see what he has been doing with them.

My buddy always said socks were very appreciated. This was at the start of the Iraq conflict so I'm not sure if things have changed in the last 25 years or not?

My brother always needs shaving necessities, powdered gatorade, and soap. He's not on a base with an airport, so getting the simple shit is a pain.

We've struggled to get anything to our adopted soldier in Afghanistan. I know our soldier in Iraqi was no problem in him actually receiving stuff, but apparently, a lot of stuff has been looted and stolen before it ever got to him. Only one letter made it there during about nine months of letters and packages. Won't stop us from trying, but recognize that is seems some areas of Afghanistan are harder to get things to.

I believe Rob could be persuaded into donating his pile of bike and car magazines. Do we have any female soldiers to send to as well?

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

PM me if you need an address to send them to

Much of the stuff we send is shared throughout their group. If you want to send something for female soldiers feel free.

Thanks

Thanks again guys, my internet has been down, so I havent been able to get on. I know we have had a couple convoys get hijacked, but more than likely the package will fly into us. I am stationed at an air base. I will let you know once I receive the boxes.

Thanks again,
Nick
