Thank you all for your generous donations over the past few months. It seems the mail situation is finally behind us as we are having packages come in at there normal rates. Seeing that the holidays are coming up this is great news.
Because of everyone's generosity as well as the support we have had from our family and friends most of us are doing fairly well on toiletries. However, what we are always in need for is ground coffee. It seems that is one of many things they hardly ever have in stock. We are all grateful for anything you are able and willing to send, but ask when sending snack please only healthy snacks as most of us have taken advantage of the gym and are doing our best to keep off the weight, at least until we get home, and lack the ability not to eat all the candy when they come in.
As always we do our best to write back to everyone who sends a letter. For those of you we are unable I do apologize and thank you for your support in advance.

Sorry I haven't updated in awhile.
First off I want to thank everyone for their generous donations. We have received donations from all over the country and it is truly humbling to see the support system we have in the U.S, when it comes to taking care of their service members. As part of my job I work with soldiers from all over the world and no other countries supports them as much as we are supported. I just want you all to know that behalf of everyone here thank you.
So, from what I'm being told the mail situation here has been sorted out and we can start to receive mail again. All that packages that were being held at the border have been released and are starting to come in. To everyone who mailed out package back in June and haven't received a "Thank you" letter or email, I apologize and once I receive the package(s) I will be sure to do that first thing.
The list of stuff needed hasn't changed. I would ask if possible please send ground coffee as the store post hasn't had it in stock for the past 2 months.
Thank you all again and God Bless.

I would like to first thank everybody who has donated we greatly appreciate it.
We are currently having a situation with our mailing system here and ask for people not to send anything for right now because we have not idea as to when we will be receiving mail. Mail has been on hold for the past 2 weeks and we were just told yesterday that they don't know when it will be released to us.
Once the mail opens back up the list is about the same. Mainly toiletry items for both mail and female soldiers and ground coffee. I will send an email once the mail goes back to normal.
Thank you all again and please write letters as we have done our best to respond to everyone who has.

We have access to a small PX with limited things, which get sold out quickly. I am making this request on behalf of my company.
Our power supply is 220V and we do have access to microwaves and fridges.
What we are looking for is basic toiletry items and snacks for soldiers who don't have them means to get them their selves of don't have them being sent from home. Some items we are looking for would be shaving creams, baby wipes, Q-tips, razors, soap or body wash, shampoo, etc. we do have a few females in our unit and would need some of those items tailored to them as well as other female hygiene products.
I really appreciate your time and help.
