First Deployment And Care Packages?
So my fiance just left for Iraq on Sunday... He was stationed at fort hood in Texas so I flew down there over the weekend to spend a little time with him before he left and to say goodbye. He just got his orders last Friday to deploy that Sunday so it was extremely short notice and neither of us were ready for it. This is his first deployment so I'm not really sure what to expect. The day we said goodbye and watching him get on the bus was extremely hard and I have been really emotional these last couple days. But I'm trying to just focus on school and he also wanted me to start sending him letters and packages right away so I have been trying to focus on that as well. I was making a list of what to send him in his first package and I was hoping some of you guys could help me out. For those of you that have or have had a deployed soldier, what do they like in their packages? Do they have access to places to buy the hygiene stuff like razors, shampoo, soap, etc? Or do we need to send that stuff to them? If any of you have any suggestions that would be great. I hope everyone is doing well :)
