You can, but he is provided with everything he needs.

you can but I would strongly discourage sending care packages. my son went thru a few years ago, and he made me swear that I would not embarrass him by sending anything but plain whte envelop letters.

when he got to his first ship after a school then it was cool to send care packages and cards :)

My son's recruiter told me to only send letters in plain white envelopes otherwise my son could potentially get singled out. My younger son did draw him pictures and mailed them along with the letters, that didn't seem to be a problem.

 That's terrible! This kind of reminded me of that movie Matilda.

Ok thank-you.

It's different without him around. He has a twin and I know he is missing his brother a lot. My Boys have never been apart very long. But I guess we all will cope.
