What would you send in a care package to a soldier on his 4th tour in Iraq? Please keep it nice. I don't want to hear any bashing. This soldier by no means started the war he is over there busting his butt though.
(I started dating him 3 weeks before he left so I would really love some ideas)
For those of you who talk a bout politics all the time (both sides) when was the last time you sent a care package over to some troops? There are a lot of them over there with no family to do this for them.

My husband and I have "adopted" nearly two-dozen soldiers since this group started! Link gives you ideas for care packages.....basically any of the "creature comforts" of home that they can't get on the battlefield, from home baked/non-perishable goods, snacks, magazines, travel sized games, disposable hygiene products, undergarments, and prepaid phone cards!

Everyone has great suggestions, but also you should take care not to put toiletries and food items together in the same box. The smell and flavor of the toiletries can get into the food (even if everything is wrapped up nice and tight).
Also, I have heard that they like romance novels. I'm not sure how true that is though.
