Hey Three Bags, (and anyone who can help) I need a minute.

    FWIW: My friend who just got deployed said he wanted DVDs for Christmas, so I assume that they have some way of watching them.

    Don't know about TBF, but I'd heard of some units who had purchased a DVD player as a group and had them shipped from the U.S. Is that true Bags?

    There are plenty of TV rooms or rec rooms with DVD players or PlayStations so they can watch them.

    DVDs are a VERY safe bet. Can't go wrong.

    In reference to earlier restrictions:

    What about porn on DVD?

    I've also heard baby wipes can be very helpful in the desert.
  6. During the early days in Afghanistan, we sent packages and packages of stuff to read. Books, papers, magazines. Anything. The letters we got back were as if we'd sent them the last water we had. Alley's right, I think.

    Currently IMing with my friend in Iraq, apparently beef jerky is a big hit. FWIW.

    When they talked about this at our church, they said toothpaste and toothbrushes were good. That surprised me, but that was the word.

    Sure. Hell, I wouldn't send it back.

    I don't think stamps are necessary. I think those guys get to send letters postage free from APOs, right?

    Right, Del, but once it gets to the APO (enroute to your house), postage is required.

    When you send something from your house to an APO, postage is required to the APO, but no farther.
