If you want to support the US troops, and have family in service overseas... start planning and shipping Christmas presents. Our forces will be there for quite a while and packages take some time to get over there.

Even if the war is over in six months, the rebuilding and peacekeeping will be a project.

Speaking from the overseas military viewpoint, unsolicited packages (especially from strangers) are necessarily suspected as potential threats (mail bombs, letter bombs or the like). Smile

I would advise sending a post card or, if you personally know someone, a package of goodies sent through the family with a card or letter inside would be appropriate. The meaning is very much the same but the possibility of putting us on edge is much much lower. Smile Kind words from home are always welcomed. It is the thought that counts.

Some organizations like Red Cross may accept items for shipment overseas. Locally, the Red Cross was so inundated with donations that they are putting a stop to the program (not for Christmas gifts, but for basic care packages). (Story here.)
