My Fiance has been in afghanistan since may and will soon be returning for R&R in december. this site has been very helpful with sending care pkgs bc ive sent him 5 and new ideas are always appreciated. the best thing i have sent him yet was a cake for his bday and brownies for his battle buddies...they really love home baked goods :] this is our first deployment and soon we'll be married and he will leave again but just thinking about how its his job to be a soldier makes everyday easier.
ps having a countdown helps no matter the amount of days left.

My boyfriend is currently in Afghanistan and has only been there since the end of July. I look forward to every letter or phonecall, no matter how short. Just the simple fact of knowing he's still okay keeps me going. So far, I have only sent him one small package, but many many letters and cards and I will be sending him another package soon for Christmas. This website has been extremely helpful with tips on sending care packages, especially because its such a stressful situation and the first time I've been in one like this. Thank you so much!

Hi. I am from Canada and would like to send care packages to some of the troops but I do not know how to obtain addresses to send them to. Can anyone help me so I can help them?

My husband was recently deployed to Afghanistan and it's been really hard for me. The holidays are coming up and trying to come up with creative ways to stay connected with him has given me hope and optimism. Thank you for giving me ideas on what to send the troops this holiday season.

My Fiance just left for his first deployment. He didn't really have that much information for me since he hasn't been through this either. This all was very helpful. I can look forward to being able communicate with him any way I can instead of feeling like I'm never going to get to talk to him. Thank you.

I found this website when I was surfing the web. I am a fiancee to a national guardsmen. He leaves for deployment in march and I wasn't even for sure how to do a care package or anything. I thank you for all the help you gave on this website.

This has helped me greatly I was clueless before :). I'm so glad that good people take the time and care to do this for spouses. Thank you!

This website is great. I like the greenish theme of the site. Ironically I find it warm. I was searching for some other care package sites and ended up at noomgo.com. It's sort of oriented at parents, but I think it might work for soldier families too. I like the selection of products on this website, but you guys might be able to find some products that aren't available here at noomgo. Hope this helps. Keep up the good work!

save money with stamp. for overseas deployed soldiers don't need stamps to send mail back to the usa. but have them check first with their (overseas) local post office.

I'm an Army man's girlfriend just trying to make it easier for him to be at least content while away in Iraq. He was deployed on the 4th of July but I write as much as I can and constantly update him with what's going on in my life when he calls so he doesn't miss out. ...I'm really happy I found this site it makes me feel like this year will pass and he will be home before I know it. I personally keep a journal and before he left I gave it to him so he could read about my life through my eyes and how he makes me feel while in Iraq so he knows that I will be here for him when he gets back, and he loved it he finished it in like three days though so I told him I'd send him another one once it's finished.lol He's a real goof but I love him.^_^ Anywho this website is amazing but one thing...don't use stirofoam peanuts they are harder to clean up...bubble wrap is the way to go. =)
