WHAT THE FRICK IS GOING ON
HOW DO I NOT CATCH ON TO SOMETHING LIKE THIS
The Troops in harms way all over the world have to buy their own supplies but sometimes they go for months without the opportunity to purchase the basic necessities. The guys in Afghanistan on the “Tip of the Spear” only get limited access to a truck that sometimes doesn’t come over unless it’s safe. After the first couple of FOB the trucks are empty and that’s where we come in and send them carepacs.Blessed Trinity Catholic Church’s CCW will be sending carepacs to Our Troops deployed, STILL AT WAR, in Afghanistan. We do this twice a year.
The number one item requested by the troops is Wipes (baby wipes or equivalent) Cheap is ok, Wal-Mart has the “parents choice” are the cheapest I’ve found. Guys on the “Tip of the Spear” get to shower once a week, and by shower I mean a bucket of water. Wipes are a life saver for in between “showers”.
Other things they need and ask for are:
Hand and feet warmers for Winter. At night in the winter in Afghanistan it goes down into the 20’s! This is also the rainy season. So they’re cold and wet.
Electric blankets for Winter
Fans for Summer
Hot cocoa mix for Winter
ICE packs for Summer
medicated foot powder
drink mix powder (like Gatorade, Power aid, Kool-Aid, Crystal light)
Black, OD Green, Olive Green, Camel Brown or/and White socks, TUBE socks are best because they accommodate all sizes unlike crew socks that fit 8-12 only. They NEED dry socks to avoid frostbite!
boot inserts (gel, memory foam, odor eaters)
air fresheners and car air fresheners (little pine tree)
mouth wash (travel size please)
self help/marriage/parenting books
magazines on Sports, hunting, fishing, cars, racing, NASCAR, wrestling, tattoos, men’s health, working out, engines, trucks, Maxim, National Geographic, Reader’s Digest, guns, airplanes, flying, Video Game Cheat Codes, Please don’t send People, US, Star, Enquirer nor any Hollywood trash magazines where they show trashy people getting millions for being immoral drunken junkies.
candy like Jolly Ranchers, mints, lemon drops, Jelly Bellies, life savers
individual packs of ketchup, TACO BELL SAUCES ALL OF THEM, hot sauces
instant coffee, packs of creamers, sugar
Granola bars, Protein bars, Cliff bars
Protein drinks like Muscle Milk, Ensure, Boost
Energy bars, Snickers
Energy drinks like Monster (any flavor/color) AMP, Full Throttle, Red Bull, 5 hour energy, Rock Star, Pit bull, KMX, Burn, Blast, HOOAH!, Lightning Bolt, Buzz, etc.
Pop tarts, cereal bars, instant oatmeal, instant grits, instant breakfast
hair clippers, nail clippers
board games, card games (phase 10, UNO etc.)
Video Games (some have received Game systems from home)
DVD’s (some have received portable DVD players from home)
cards, letters and drawings that express good wishes are appreciatedIf you’re so inclined as to actually support Our Troops, you too can do this. Contact your church or local VFW, and orginize a collection and go to AnySoldier.com read the posts and pick someone <3
Please, pass around for the list of what to send in carepacs, and that maybe someone’s church may do the same <3
Our local care package organization also suggested small flags, non-aerisol shaving cream and olive and tan t-shirts - long or short sleeve in m, l, xl for layering. Try jiffyshirts.com (free shipping over $59.00 and they have the best prices!)
This is my short generic list. If you’re in close communication with your adoptees, they’ll let you know more about their paticular condition and you can add to your carepacs pretty much anything you can think you’d need for living. Some troops have twin beds but they don’t get linens nor a place to buy them. Same with pillows, pillow cases, electric blankets, heaters, fans in the summer, towels (all sizes), toiletries; microwaves, microwave safe plates, cups, and mugs; tarps, table colths, flatware, pots, cooking utensils, coffee makers and coffee pods, canned food (all kinds), can openers, trash bags, zippy lock bags (all sizes) laundry detergent, laundry bags, softner, dryer sheets, dishwashing detergent, tools, scissors, Military sewing kits. Matches, lighters, flashlights, usb flashdrive, batteries, long extension cords, surge protector strips, portable DVD player, camera, folding chairs, baseballs-gloves-bats, football, volleyball with net, darts, silly string cans, paints, sketch pads, stationary, pens, markers, highlighters, Bibles.
Gym shorts, and shirts. Under Armour underwear for winter/summer. Pajamas, and slippers (footwear). Soft warm PJ’s for the winter so they don’t have to sleep in uniform!!!
They also ask for and appreciate TOBACCO PRODUCTS, mainly chewing tobacco/dip!
Let them chew if that gives them an ounce of serenity! They can think about quitting after they’re back home and don’t have to worry about getting shot!!!!!
Send them appropriate seasonal stuff like for December carepacs send Christmas hats, scarves, lights, stockings, candy canes, ornaments, mini trees, etc <3
Massive IDF Bombing before Hamas agrees to 12 Hour Cease Fire in Gaza, July 26th 2014.
The IDF dropped tens of thousands of pounds of bombs on the Hamas controlled compounds in Shijaiyah on Saturday morning July 26th. Minutes after this strike, Hamas agreed to sign a 12 hour cease fire.
Peace through superior firepower.

#11: Training Ground Defense and Locks
this is super important for any independent wheelchair user. also, if you’re about to be swung at or pushed, you can grab onto the assailant’s arm with one hand, pull down, and punch them in the face or stomach with your other arm while you figure a way to get them in a choke. also don’t forget the groin!
always be aware of your surroundings (as chair users, i feel like this may be a given haha)!
