THESE ARE THE ADDRESSES IN WHICH YOU SHOULD USE IF YOU HAVE NOT MAILED YOUR GIFT YET!! EVERYONE WHO HAS MAILED ALREADY IT IS OK IF IT WAS NOT EXACTLY LIKE THIS BUT THIS MAKES IT EASIER FOR THE SORTING COMPANY!!




My husband is deployed to Afghanistan and will be gone through Christmas so me and his mom felt like it would be a good idea to send stockings to everyone in his platoon. He says there are some people over there that has never recieved gifts the whole time there. We have sent 2 people care packages that havent recieved anything during this deployment and I know they were thrilled. So what I was thinking is maybe there would be a few BBs on here((or know someone who would like to)) that might want to get in on the spirit of giving and help us send some stockings or something for the marines. There are 41 people per platoon..wether you wanted to help with a stocking or send a christmas card or maybe even send a care package They would be so thrilled to recieve anything I know!! I would give you the address so nothing would go through me... so what you send YOU KNOW is going directly to THEM!! I know im about to be broke but nothing makes me feel better than helping those who are defending me. I have never gave a more meaningful gift. Just think that you might be sending the one and only gift a marine might recieve his whole deployment. This is a very rewarding thing it makes me feel very wonderful about myself. If there are some of you wanting to participate I'll post the address on here just let me know!! You can also follow them on facebook CLR-15 FWD...Its just sad that we send my husband a box a week and some of these men go 7 or more months without ever recieving a thing...Can you imagine being over there and feeling like no one cares?? I try to help make a difference..So can you ..our goal is to atleast make sure all 41 recieve a stocking but anything extra is GREATLY appreciated!! Anything needs to be shipped and postmarked BY Dec. 7th, 2010 in order for them to recieve them by Christmas.

examples of things we used in stockings...(travel size is nice because they are always on the move)
Baby wipes
Hand sanitizer
Razors,shaving cream,etc
Toothbrush,toothpaste,mouthwash etc.
Foot powder
Socks(they love socks sometimes go week at a time without showers in boots on missions)
Deodorant,body spray,etc
anything to do with hygine...
Power bars
Jerkys((LOVE THIS))
Magazines
Snacks
Eye drops(lots of dust over there lol)
Hand warmers

Anything you want to send... thats just what we have sent and what is going in stockings we have done..

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this I hope you all decide to help a little :)

Megan Gaddy

**Flat rate shipping through USPS Large priority box is 12.50**

**Trying to send all them around the same few days so they recieve them at one time like maybe we can set a date to send our gifts like a time frame between mon-tues or mon-wed(does not pertain to anything) or something like that.**

**It is very cold over there right now by the way so anything to help with that is a good idea also**


((NAME HERE))
CLR-15 FWD GSMT CO
Unit 42147
FPO AP 96427-2147
 
they will be given out as they are recieved im guessing...like to the ones who has not recieved anything yet they will get theres first then so on...

If you want a name of a person...Let me know!!

and they will just hand them out? to whomeever correct ? oh read your post ok.. think if we all sent by end of next week... they can hold all packages until a certain date and hand them all out at once . I am thinking it may not be there by Christmas but maybe ..
it always took 2 weeks or so to get to iraq
cool thanks what a grand idea

My husband asked for a hammock so he can hook between trucks.. he has been sleeping on the ground under the truck since he got there ..He will be getting it before Christmas because the thought of that just breaks my heart. I got one from Academy its made from parachute material and it looks very comfortable..20.00...Remember that GSMT stands for general support motor transportation so they are always going and that means no beds, no real food, no showers,and no contact..anything they can use to help with these problems are great!! Phone cards are amazing because its expensive to talk...Believe me lol...my family is buying my husband some minutes on his card lol..Perfect gift from them to us
