Have you heard of Any Soldier.com? It’s an amazing site that gives you all the info you need to send care packages abroad to the men and women serving in the U.S. armed forces. Not only that, but you can read notes from the soldiers and prepare care packages based on their current needs & requests.
For example, just today, Cpl Anderson wrote from Iraq, “If it isnt too much to ask, we need some cold weather socks for the upcoming winter we are about to have. Just to name a few other things, green tea, plain black beanies, and some beef jerky. ”
I’m grateful to read first-hand how the soldiers abroad describe their work environment and give a glimpse of what they are going through.
SGT Dickson posted today “The soldiers that are all around me appreciate all you have given us thus far. We have been here since March, we are hoping to leave in June next year. It is comforting to know that you have us in mind when you send items that you think we could use and need.”
Note to self: prepare another care package.
