good luck buddy. my friend is shipping out monday to afganastan. we had a big as party for him last night after my social. former teamate is shipping out soon aswell. people like you guys are the reason why we are all here today. respect
Ok, I'm putting together a little care package to send Nick. This is what I have so far:
Innova X1 Floodlight
Princeton Tec Pulsar
two pack of Handy-wipes
Pack of AA batteries
Pack of Bic lighters
Doug Ritter Pocket Survival Pack
Pack of Jolly Ranchers
Pack of Assorted Bubblicious gum
I was going to send a Surefire G2 as well, but I don't know what the availability of CR123 batteries is and if the bulb goes it's pretty much useless.
I'm also worried about sending it, since I know soldiers go through his mail before he gets it, I don't want any of the more expensive items to disappear. I'm not sure if I should engrave his name on them or something.
Anyway, now I have to figure out how to send this stuff. I think you have to use a special size box and fill out a customs form. I'll have to head to the post office one day this week and see what they say.
Oh, and I wouldn't send him a paintball, chocolate, or anything that melts. During the day it gets pretty hot over there, it would just become a big mess.
