  • Angels to soldiers is the only one I have heard about. The soldiers sign up for that one. You can also contact your nearest military installation's family readiness groups (FRG's) or Army Community Service equivalent. I don't know what other services call their organizations, DH is Army.

  • If you need a recipe that stays fresh for more then 2 weeks let me know. I just made it and sent it to my BIL who is in Japan right now. And he didn't get them for almost 2 week and they were still Delicious!
