Re: O.T. ?? for our Service Men and Women overseas.
When I was over there last year, the most popular thing was sunglasses or goggles. Something to keep the sun and sand out of your eyes. I know that everyone brought some sunglasses and goggles, but getting them replaced when they got broken or lost was another story. The goggles that we used were sky diving goggles. They didn't let sand in and they were more comfortable than the issued goggles. Also t-shirts, socks and skivy drawers were very popular items. For the females over there, the female hygene products were a very popular item. All I can say is that those military personnel over there appreciate anything that you send. They may not convey it physically, but deep in there heart, they really do appreciate it. As far as what organization to donate too, the USO is a good one, but for the Marines, Marine Corps Community Services takes care of alot of the their recreation items. Your best bet would be to contact your nearest base and talk to them. From one retired Jarhead, I thank you for your support. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]
