are there any rules to sending soldiers packages?

i mean, are there things they arent allowed to have while overseas or that you should not send? Do they check the packages before giving them to them? I thought a good gift idea would be to send my brother all of our old dvds (we have a ton)..that is..if he has a dvd player. that way they would have some movies to watch on the weekends. I don't know..just a thought. what do you think? I'm running out of things to stuff in his package.

  • I sent my husband several dvd's while he was deployed. Most soldiers have a laptop or a portable dvd player to watch the movies on, but I would check to make sure he has one.

  • most of them are all into fitness and some protein powder or bars in there....they love that crap....and itunes gift cards....does he dip or smoke? sending the more expensive stuff is a real treat to them, my husband always complains that the crap they sell over there isnt as strong...
