The Sandbox

GWOT hot wash, straight from the wire

Welcome to The Sandbox, a forum for service members who have served or are currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, returned vets, spouses and caregivers. The Sandbox's focus is not on policy and partisanship (go to our Blowback page for that), but on the unclassified details of deployment -- the everyday, the extraordinary, the wonderful, the messed-up, the absurd. All correspondence is read, and as much as possible is posted, lightly edited. If you know someone who is deployed who might have something to say, please tell them about us.

THE BEST OF CARE PACKAGES |

March 30, 2011

Name: Scott
Stationed in: Afghanistan

When the going gets tough, the tough have a cookie. Or read a magazine, flip through cards and letters, or wrap up in a quilt. All this is possible thanks to the dozens of care packages that we get from family, friends, and various organizations. Whether it's food, clothing, reading material, toiletries, we appreciate the support.


The never-empty care package shelf.

 

Here are some of the memorable gifts:


Italian night in a box.

Mangia, Mangia!

 

Cookies Ready-To-Eat.

Camoflauge chocolate chip.



General interest magazines and books.

For poultry lovers anywhere (cue snarky grin by a Texas friend).

 

The Empire State novelty.

Nothing like cutting and gluing matches to cure monotony.
