In one email he informed me that a few of the men under him never receive letters or packages in the mail. Once I heard that I hit up the store and bought enough for him and all of the men under him. It's a simple thing to send someone a letter or put together a care package, and it means so much to those so far from home who are fighting for our country. I would love it if you all would consider signing up with Adopt A US Soldier and sending some love to our men and women in the military. It is really fun and such a great cause.
The First Care Package
Some of the stuff we put into our box.
Contents of our box:
reeses peanut butter eggs
Tips for sending packages:
*order boxes online through USPS. They are military boxes and the post office will send some to your house for free.
*pay for your shipping online to save money. Since the package is going overseas and through customs it can get a bit pricey. The discount given by USPS helps.
I'm already looking forward to sending our second package. We plan on including some chocolate, magazines and other yummy things they might be missing from home.
