My cousin is stationed there, going to send him a Christmas package and not sure what else to send.
What do soldiers there need, what may his fellow peeps need?
Thank you

Comfort food (cookies, candy, powder drink mixes like lemonade or hot chocolate, dried fruits, canned ham (marked as otherwise)), foot powder and book. At least that's what I've sent to them.

They really need hookers and blow, but those assholes at the post office will just confiscate it...

empty pringles can with a bottle of tequila in it. That is what I used to send my brother and he and his buddies very much appreciated it.

From what I hear they get send a shit ton of sweets like cookies and candy, so something else is preferable.


Jerky, booze, hillshire farms summer sausage, cheese/beef stick packages, good peanut butter, magazines ( gunrags, skinrags, automotive mags).

Cue Jdude dipping the ENTIRE F*ING CAN and chewing on that shit for about ten minutes
I refused to spit cause, well, my friends were there ya know?
I ended up unintentionally swallowing massive chunks of dip
Did you know you could get stoned from copenhagen? I didn't. I've never been stoned before.

I got so fucking high from the cope

I threw up all over the place and wasn't right for 2 days.

Larue Tactical. Buy stuff from them.

Socks - big, thick, warm socks.

As mentioned, jerky. Lots of different flavors.

Hot sauce. The more exotic the better, but anything helps the food.

Really nice Thorlos, similar socks. When humping hills all day, good scoks make a big difference. As was mentioned, baby wipes- non scented or spring fresh. Not baby scented.......
Sunglasses- polarized ones. Icy hot for sore shoulders/ feet is great stuff. Vicks' vapor rub; stuffy heads are the norm for many in the really dry mountain air.
Notepads and pens. Pocket size notepads are great. Envelopes for sending letters and notes back home are good too- put the address and name on them to throw that little hint; it works!!

And most important, send our thanks to the deployed, and let them know we think about them and wish them all a speedy return and a safe journey.

Toilet paper.

Buy a case (and I mean one of those big-ass'd 100+ roll cases of ass-tickets) and send it.


One of our troop's moms sent us 10 cases. Her note said, "Your soul is up to Jesus, but I can save your ass."
