God bless,
Well, myself and the rest of my Marines would love to have any hunting/gun/HANDLOADING mags any of you all are willing to send. Our address is

Scott Beretz
PRT Farah TF87 MSOC I
APO AE 09354

Trust me, the magazines will get read. We all have a pretty huge appetite for gun mags and really anything to do with shooting or hunting. Semper Fi Scotty

Anything that is sent to Afghanistan is going to take upwards of 2-3 weeks to get to anyone not actually at a major hub. Anybody out in the nether regions has a good while to wait on mail. Once the weather starts to take a turn in the Winter, flights are really slow. Scotty

I cannot believe the moderators are letting these addresses stand posted here. Talk about begging for someone to send something to the guys over there from ahem: the bad guys ? Please, for your son's sake, do this via a PM.

in this day in age, thats very hard to do. although, i do agree they shouldnt be posted in the forum. but the chances of someone sending something that could harm soldiers in iraq or afghanistan is slim to none. and slim just left town. naval customs is extremely thourough.

but i do have to say that we used to get random care packages all the time at the COP(combat outpost) i was stationed at. it was extremely uplifting. we used to get packages from a nursing home in florida all the time. it always had knitted caps and socks and stuff. one even had custom knitted rifle covers, i thought that was about the coolest thing i ever saw. i ended up giving mine to one of my guys. there werent quite enough to go araound, good will i guess.

if you guys do send things, try to send shower type stuff, its hard to come by. at least where i was. letters, newspaper clippings, magazines(tastefull), ramen, books, dvd's(tastefull), and just comfort stuff like family pictures and such. the guys overseas are all homesick, even if they say theyre not. i know i was, and said i wasnt.

I hear you brother. I have a son who's currently in the Marines. But he's not overseas now. Posting a guy's address while he is overseas in an open forum shouldn't be done. Just trying to lookout for y'all. Thank you for your service.

The further out the outpost the more it is appreciated because those guys have nothing to support them. (ie no PX facilities). To those deployed take care and God bless.

CD,
As you well know, being with an ODA in the middle of NOWHERE in six inches of moon dust, soon to be snow/mud, the concept of a PX is novel. Glad I came back with a few dozen gun mags in the bottom of my ruck; have not had mail delivery yet...

Sure hope there are some of those deals whereby the folks back home will support the guys forward deployed with gun mags. Have to say though that I have not had much time to read; just got our tent up and no lights.

Be safe and stay away from those BM-1's...

RLTW,

I believe you'll pass on the lights for the moment and get heat in that tent first. Stay safe and watch your six brother, PM me your addy, wife sent me some gun mags I'll pass on. Did forward some of those you gave me to my son down south.

CD,
I'll send address as some others who read this might want to send goodies (gun mags, cigars etc) to the boys on the team as well.

ODA 7311
AOB 1320
FOB M.E.S.
APO, AE 09368

Out again today and it's much more like Tony Sopranoville than those big hills on the border in Paktika. Good mix of Pashtun, Hazara, Takj's and Uzbeks. They are all nuts...

Not sure I'll get out of this AO much before Spring; hopefully will go see #2 son graduate and then will commission him. Not sure if it will be Inf or Treadhead...

Thanks in advance for any mags and oh, BTW, Happy Veterans Day Brother. You sure as **** put your time in.

HOOAH!

I have put together some stuff, is this address still good? FWIW: I have no idea what those numbers/abbv. mean.

Okay to send some factory sealed food items (slim jims/jerky) too?

old Ranger buddy,

Just got back in country from leave. I hope you're doing well and staying safe. My oldest just pinned his second rocker on New Years Day.

Congrats to your boy! The 2nd rocker is the best one in the Marine Corps. After that it is all downhill! Scotty

I try to read this forum as much as I can, but I don't have a lot of spare time.
I do have some old gun mags and some old operators manual for the 5.56-MM, M16 A2 W/E which are probably outdated and some Explosives And Demolitions manuals that are outdated but they show you how the Navy did it many years ago. These are not illegal because you can get them in most surplus store. I'm a shooter and I used to blow stuff up years ago.
I know its no fun being over there but try to be alert all the time and come home safe. I'm proud to know anyone that's still over there protecting us elders. Thanks

I can empathize...

Got my brother over there, right now. He's a civilian, a degreed engineer, working for a large American contractor. He's part of a group of companies that are building bases all over the southern half of AFG. Spends many a day flying around in choppers from the 1960s-- Vietnam-era stuff. He emails just about every day. Amazing technology my dad did not have when he went to Saudi in 1968. I am always overjoyed to get anything he sends. I am counting the days until his hitch is up, but I know he will re-up for a second year. Something about Middle Eastern construction that makes a man stay in such an environment. I was in Saudi and Kuwait, myself, in the late 1970s. I'd go back if I wasn't in my mid-50s. So I tell my brother that when he's done over there, he will have such a feather in his hat that he can write his own ticket to anywhere. I hope that ticket is for anyplace stateside...
