the other thing to remember when sending packages is to send enough for 5-10 people. there is no such thing as getting a care package out there and not having everyone ravage through it before you even get to. whats mine is yours lol

If you send coffee, send Starbucks Via, or so I am told...

Someone mentioned the different needs based on MOS. My brother was infantry and Starbucks VIA was gold. Instant espresso, like what they sell at the mexican mercado's is good too. They also liked the nice tuna/salmon packages as opposed to cans-o-tuna. They had some kind of deal with Nestle for their water so the quality was always good but drink the same kind of water constantly and you'll go nuts. So MIO's are great.

Side story- I was helping one of my brothers army buddies move right after they got back from trashcanistan and his wife bought the same nestle water. They all flipped out. It was pretty funny.

Porn mags are meaningless, everyone has ipads and laptops now. Look for the blue glow in the port-o-potties at night.

I hate Tabasco hot sauce, and that was the only hot sauce we ever got over seas, so send over a bunch of good hot sauce. Magazines are good but don't forget books. Books are great because they hold an interest longer than magazines and you can shove them in small places to take along. Oh and guitar strings, I say this because we couldn't find any over seas and my friend would have done almost anything for just the one he broke.

Good one. I don't remember how but we somehow scored several bottles of Tapatio. Way better than tobasco.

Lies, Tabsco>Tapatio, Tapatio's too sweet and vinegary, though better than the Texas Pete crap in the UGRs. Best hot sauce is either Sriracha or Valentina, the regular not the extra hot which has no flavor, just heat.

And porn mags are good for some, because when I was in Afghan, we could only get on the internet at the MWR and work, so even if they didn't block porn, no privacy. And even if we had WIFI, they would have blocked porn. Though we mostly shared videos and pictures on our laptops. But many grunts on the COBs and PBs didn't have electricity, so no laptops.

And caffeine anything is money. Send energy shots, energy drink cans break and too bulky/heavy to send enough, caffeine gum or candy, caffeine pills.
