Help the soldiers

Years ago someone posted on the forums a request to help soldiers and their families who are stationed overseas. I answered the call and asked people I worked with as well as friends to do so. I will request something here for them. Many of you who travel stay in hotels that give you small containers of shampoos and soap. You would be surprised how a little item can mean so much when you can't run out to a store. The military has strict rules of what can be mailed. Everything has to be sealed.
2nd Expired food coupons. We sent slightly expired food coupons and pamper coupons to military families and the commissary so families could get a discount. The military does not charge a reduced price to families. Some of them have to get on food stamps to survive. Imagine if you have kids to feed and run out of food.

I am suggesting if you have a military friend stationed anywhere out of the country, send them these slightly expired coupons. The Military stores are suppose to honor them. Whatever isn't used can be shared hopefully.
Soaps and shampoos are a good idea for the military and medical evac's and hospitals.

And MAGAZINES. NO PORNO. Can't go out and buy toilet paper when you are fighting a war. Old magazine pages can become toilet paper. Sounds primitive huh. Sometimes you just need something to READ. ;)

Do what you can do!!
