What do you give to someone leaving to Afghanistan for another tour of duty ?

I have a good friend who is leaving in April for his 2nd deploymant to Afghanistan. He is having a "GoodBye" Party and I really wanted to get him something. Im hoping some of you awesome military wives, girlfriends, or moms could help me out.
A) Are they even allowed to take anything with them ?
B) If so, what is a good gift to get him. What is something soldiers need while out there or like to have?

Thanks ladies!

  • Well it depends on what he likes as far as things he can easily take with him. I sent my hubby movies because he took his laptop and he could watch movies on it. Find out if he is taking a laptop and if so if there are any games or movies he likes. Also, books if he likes to read. As far as practical stuff, they usually need baby wipes, toiletries, non-perishable foods like jerky, cookies, chips, etc.
