Parcel to soldoers in Afghanistan

#1
Hi,

My wife and I want to send a few parcels to front line soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq but we do not know any soldiers out there who to send them to. Our family have always had members in the forces, my father served 26 years, uncle 23 years and cousins in the Falklands and GW1, but none of our family are in at the moment.

We want to send a parcel with a load of goodies, so does anyone out there know who we should address the parcel to?

Thanks, keep safe and many people are thinking of you out there.

That sucks, what ever happened to the team mentality. Hope you arranged suitable revenge.

Thanks for that. Parcels will be one the way in the next few days.
:salut:

As long as the above mentioned doesn't happen, and the parcels get to the lads on the front, they'll be welcomed massively.

Just seen this and thought I'd add my own thanks. I got a welfare parcel once, from some completely random old lady who's husband fought in WW2. The morale boost from the mags, sweets, decent toothpaste, etc. was great, but the best bit was the letter - Addressed simply to "a soldier in Iraq".

When you're stuck in a sh*thole like that, there's no morale boost like knowing someone is thinking about you - Especially when that person is completely random and isn't doing it because they feel they should.

I made every lad in my section write her a thank you note!
