    DH and I have just mailed the umpteenth box to our DD in AF.We went to Walmart and spent and hr. looking for stuff that we take for granted like tissue and paper clips. I also send her flannel PJ pants to wear in the barraks when off duty. I have a lot of flannel and just saw the post about the fires in Amarillo. I am sending out a box tomorrow to them. Please ,don't forget our troops overseas. They need our help too. God bless our troops.

    I thought someone was joking a few years ago when they asked for diaper wipes. Then I was told they were for bathing. Just makes me value things so much more!!

    what I do is a tiny speck of sand compared to what you son and granma1's daughter does. Since my husband and I cannot serve it is our way to give back and support them :)

    When my sister was in Iraq a few years ago, we sent boxes to her every week. If anyone one in her platoon needed something, I did my best to send it to them. Our military men and women sacrifice so much for us that I felt honored to be able to help them.

    When my son was serving for 5 years on the Harry E. Yarnell, he asked me to either send him enough for lots of his friends. Said that most guys didn't get anything from home at all, so sure did like the stuff he and other lucky ones rec from home. He said when he got a package, he took it to his bunk and could almost feel the ship sinking on his side because of all the guys who "Just happened" to be going his way then.
