Antmans Dad has good suggestions.  For more, here's an overview of our deployment information:

Click on any topic from the left menu to learn more.  Under care packages it's probably easier to learn the 'Restrictions' the top of my head - no pork, alcohol, aerosols...


We have a Care Package message board group - great place to visit, too:

Scan the topic titles to find those of interest to you.   This one, by 17smom (Julie) has good suggestions, too, in her first post:

I am not sure but I have always sent plenty of Baby Wipes, power bars, powdered Gatoraid or Tang, little packs Taco Bell Salsa (Free) and packages of chicken, turkey......... I send very little sugar products, they need to eat lots of protien due to all the work they do to keep up their mucles. Something to read (Sporting News) and new movies. They normally have some way of viewing them.

Looking for the list of approved items that we can send in care package where can I find it?
