    If you were in Afghanistan and somebody was going to send you a goody box what would you like to find in that box?

    There's rules about what you can and cannot send.

    California Girl pretty much nailed it with her list, depending where the deployed location is I might want some magazines too if their not available on post.

    honest answer

    Porn mags. The nerdiest socially aukward man had freinds if he had porno.

    Home made cookies, like Sunni said, or any treat that you make yourself.

    My Mom sent cornbread. People lined up for a slice of that.

    Spray cheese and crackers

    My Dad sent huge jars of PB & J, no bread or crackers. So we had to use our own bread and that killed much of the joy.

    A ball of some kind or a frisbee

    Really, anything you can think of is great.

    Oh, yea, I forgot those - magazines!! Not porn!! Porn is not allowed. Apparently. (Although I have been known to send the occasional 'guys' mag and they've got through ok).:lol:

    You can only send porn mags if the location allows it, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia did not.
