    Army SO's/bootcamp

    Advertisements
    My brother called today and spoke to my dad from bootcamp. (The rest of the fam was gone so none of us have a clue about anything.) My father says he said they were allowed to receive care packages in basic at Fort Jackson, but my father didn't ask him what kinds of things could be included.
    Anyone know anything?!





    Have you ever thought about what protects our hearts? / Just a cage of rib bones and other various parts /
    So it's fairly simple to cut right through the mess / And stop the muscle that makes us confess / And we are so fragile /
    And our cracking bones make noise / And we are just breakable, breakable, breakable girls and boys.

    Asking my husband:

    Nothing illegal, anything edible you must include enough for his entire company/battalion/platoon, you can send family pics, just little things...maybe puzzle books if you want. If he's not allowed to have it, they will confiscate it. Every basic is different, this is just what was generally allowed.
