  • I'm a Navy wife, and I know mine couldn't get anything but letters/ cards while he was in basic. You could always send something with your baby's hand prints, or something like that. Good luck, and don't forget, they open mail before it gets to the guys, so no inappropriate photos. Also, any time someone tries to send food, they normally eat it before it gets to the guys, and sometimes eat it in front of them. Hang in there, basic always sucks, but it'll be over soon. : )
