I would suggest, Veterans Park, Bayshore Bl. and Bay to Bay, or The Liberty Ship. Bayshore needs no advance work, the other two may.

Do you know how the postage to Iraq is being handled? I have access to many “care” packages waiting to be delivered to the front for lack of Postage. I may be able to coordinate getting them to you if the postage issue is handled.

FReepmail me with the info on the care package whereabouts. Perhaps a bulk shipment can be arranged.

mission, how many boxes? what is the amount you need to cover postage, if you will?

a suggestion, not only can you get help from us here at FR but contact your county Republican Women's organization. We do projects like Caring Hands, Caring for America, etc with the troops and like to support those kinds of things. They would also be a good resource for you!! Our group in South Dakota took second in the nation (of Republican Women groups), so we were told, at the National Convention for NFRW. Challenge your local group to help you and gain recognition for it as well, at the NFRW level. Justa thought.

Postage is a huge expense when sending care packages. FReepmail on the way.

First you need a Customs Declaration Form.
These are available from the Post Office.
Normal air postage is 16.50.
Flat rate for less than 20 pounds is 8.50.
All you're doing is paying the postage to the Army's NY package center.

Do you have any idea how I find the Pensacola location?

I’m heading over for a mid-afternoon concert - I could go early and drop off a bunch of cards. What a great day. Support the troops in the AM, and listen to some great Christmas music in the afternoon.

Thanks in advance.

My friends in Wesley Chapel actually work for the Post Office. At their own personal expense they have a warehouse next to the Post Office where they work their day job. At night, and every spare moment, they or volunteers pack boxes with a harvest of love gifts from selfless patriots. The boxes are of all sizes, and are typically to fulfill specific requests of need. StarBucks donates coffee beans, and the beans are freshly ground before shipment to our soldiers.

My daughter was at the Rally in Tampa and had her grandson who is 6 along with her.
As she was speaking to me from the Rally on her cell phone, she asked Gold Star mom Debbie Lee to talk to me. That was such a thrill to be speaking to Debbie and she was so nice.
The little grandson didn’t want to leave the Rally and I think they must be there yet.

I have a box of cards from the kids at the elementary school near me. Where do I send them in New York? They must be sent tomorrow if they are going to get there in time.

This remines me of my days at Tyndall AFB when I was at Wetstone Control. Seems like another lifetime ago.

The F106 was one bad ass interceptor.
