    A little lost o.O

    Advertisements
    So I received a letter from DB last week. He's currently at BCT at Ft. Benning. He asked if I could send him a care package ; he needs more envelopes, a notepad (for paper), postal stamps and a few other necessities. Can he receive a care package while at Basic ? If so, how would I go about sending him one? When I send him letters I have to color the corners of the envelope a specific color, would the same go for sending him a care package as well? I'm so lost and confused =/. Can anyone help me or offer any advice regarding this?
    I would really appreciate it ..

    DB's parents sent him a care package of envelopes/stamps/stuff and it was fine (at Fort Sill). Try checking the website to see if care packages are okay.

    DH was at Benning... We didn't have to color the envelopes. But, while I never sent DH a package like that, I'm fairly certain other people sent such packages... I believe you could also send moleskins and bandages, stuff like that. But it also varies by what unit/company/group/squad/whatever (been a year and I still can't get it right! >.<) your DB is with. If he's asking for the stuff though, there's a 99.9% chance that means he's allowed to get it. He wouldn't ask for something to get himself in trouble, lol. I would just get one of those big padded envelope things (which I know a ton of guys DH was with got) and color the corners like you do for a regular sized envelope. I def wouldn't be sending a big box or anything, lol.

    I can't stress enough to only send exactly what he asked for. Nothing extra. Don't even add a stick of gum to that package.

    Okay. What kind of box? Is there any specific directions to follow in doing so?

    If its only a few small things I would use those envelopes that have the bubbles in it. If what he asked for wont ship well or fit into one of those just use a regular flat rate box.
