Care packages to Afghanistan

December 16, 2009

I have a friend serving in military right now, and he’s stationed in the cold of Afghanistan for at least several more months this tour. Last week, my biggest worry was that I’d never get to sleep.  A couple weeks ago, his base was rocket attacked and an entire side of the base was damaged.

So I did what I do best: offered him a care package with any food, candy or snacks he wanted.  (He wants.)

Hint: I’m told that hot chocolate packages are care mail GOLD.

If you’re looking to send a care package to a member of the military, pick up a flat rate APO box and customs forms from your local post office, I was quoted a rate of under $15.  The packages are taking about ten days to arrive when posted from the West Coast, though the holidays may slow that delivery time down a bit.

If you don’t have a special family member or friend and would like to send something anyway, check out Any Soldier for information on how to send care packages to the military. [Thanks to The Lost Goat for the link.]
