    ok...i want to send my boyfriend a care package while he is in basic training at ft. jackson. what kind of box can i use? would a shoe box work? just as long as i tape it really good...or should i just stick with trying to find a standard brown box?

    Shoe box works fine & you can even go to a shoe store & ask them for their extras boxes

    yeah... I dont think so either. DB is in AIT even and for Valentine's Day I didn't think he'd be able to get to keep his candy... luckily his Drill S. let him keep it...

    I didn't think so either. I just asked Dh if he was allowed packages and he said no...

    I asked a guy who went to Ft. Jackson and he said just as long as it's not food or candy. I'm sending him cough drops, tissues, moleskin..nothing really exciting.

    Hmmm, my wife was allowed to have care packages in basic but what was in it was stuff like arch supports, gel insoles and that type of thing. no food. When I was in basic for the Navy we were allowed to have care packages of cookies, but we had to share which was no big deal. I was in during christmas so I am thinking they were a little easier on us but not much.

    Don't send too much. That will make him stand out. That is a bad thing. If he needs things, he can buy them at the BX.
