retired from Community Solutions. Worked as a crisis intervention, suicide prevention hotline and a sexual assault advocate. I have 4 grown children and 1 grandchild.
I have sent care packages many times. I have 2 son's that are serving in the Air Force. My oldest is leaving for Kuwait in 2 weeks. My younger son is leaving for Saudi in 5 weeks. They love to receive care packages from home, churches, etc...They say that it let's them know they are not forgotten about from "back home". Very thoughtful of people to send care packages, games, cards, etc...they love it all
I have 2 son's that are in the Air Force. They are often deployed at the same time. My oldest boy leaves for Iraq on 1-27-17. He will be gone for a year. He'll get to come home for a month after 6 month deployment then go back. I send care packages to the boys at least once a year. They especially love the baked goods. My son will email when they need something from the states.
