Silly question, if I mail these to a female in basic, will they actually give them to her when she goes to AIT? Or do you think she could take a pair with her?

Certianly not whoever the Air Force buys theirs from. The damn things start falling apart about as soon as you put them on.

I can't really help you with the Army, but in the AF we wouldn't have really had an occasion to need them in tech school.

Okay, well I was going to mail some better made thinsulate long johns and these 'aviator gloves' come highly recommended for windy situations so I thought that would be a good present for her. She's not that strong in terms of handling cold weather n such.

She can wear them in AIT.... But she has been issued gloves, and cold weather grear already. More stuff she will have to pack, and loose and/or get stolen. Not really much need for them in a warm classroom, learning how to be behind a desk or in a warehouse.

Okay I understand. What do you think I send her besides a letter every couple of days? She doesn't eat candy. Any recommendations?

2. Personal Photos (no more than five in your wall locker)(tasteful)

3. Religious medallions

4. Finger and toe nail clippers

5. Carmex

6. Cocoa Butter Lotion

7. Irons


What are 'Irons' >?

Oh for gods sake. An iron? The iron where you iron your clothes. How in the hell did I miss that?
