I'm actually asking this for a friend.. I looked for the thread about someone else doing this awhile back but couldn't find it. Anyways my friend has a good friend who is in Afghanistan with the Army, my friend wants to send him a package but needs ideas... Thanks! [:)]

a letter. trust me, he'll love to get just a plain ordinary letter. if you have to do more than that, you could see what happens if you send him ammo 8). or, more seriously, some semi-fresh civilian food, if you can

Send him some gatorade mix, Recent magazines, jollyranchers, stamps, pens, socks. A cd player or walkman, music he likes and a letter telling him how much you appreicate what he is doing. It does not have to be alot or extravegant he'll like whatever you send, I know.

[blue]Here's the only stuff I ever wanted- 1. Hussler (If he's not into that, he can trade it) 2. AA Batteries (for walkman, gameboy, etc) 3. Letters (Don't tell him how great a service he is doing for his country, he already knows. Tell him how much you miss him, and remind him of the things you guys have done together. Tell him what's goin on back home. The most meaningless everyday things to us ase the stuff he misses the most. Like that hottie you say in the "daisy dukes" at the grocery store yesterday.) 4. playing cards with naked chicks on them. 5. Twix, Corona. [red]6. MOST IMPORTANT!!! Try and get a picture of his family girlfriend/wife/children/parents/grandparents whatever he has, get a picture of them already, or get one taken and shrink it down to the size of a dog tag or so, [u]laminate[/u] it and make sure there is a little hole in it so it canbe put on his chain with his dog tags. My grandfather (WWII Vet) did this for me when I was in and I sill have mine to this day.[/red][/blue]

pork for the local muslims, it is pork that they cannot eat, right?

I for one cannot imagine an American fighting man over there without some porno...some good ol pictures of some hot AMERICAN PUSSY is always a morale booster...if the muslims don't like it...too fuckin bad

All of the above is good advice. I remember on deployments really liking just a plain ole' letter with some photos best. Guaranteed to make a guy smile. Or, you could always send the tried and true...[:D] [img]http://www.botanical.com/products/lotions/lotion.jpg[/img][img]http://www.purgingtalon.com/peru/hustler.jpg[/img][img]http://www.nomarthastewart.com/images/towel.jpg[/img]
