I think even some of the simplest things make a big difference to some of these guys!  I sent a box of food snacks, including a 5 pound bag of peanuts, to this unit.  The Saturday Night Live DVD set I sent has apparently been a big hit!  Anything we can send.........snacks, magazines, books, etc, is all appreciated.  I hope we still encourage our friends to participate.  There are still lots of folks on "AnySoldier.Com" (from all services) who could use some help............or even letters from home.  They LOVE getting local newspapers, and they're cheap to send via media mail!
This guy is at a FOB in Afghanistan, near Pakistan....a really bad place to be.  I'll be glad to send addresses to anyone who wants to mail stuff over!  Pass it along?

     Hi Chief!  My name is Luke Godson and I am one of the medics out here at Kamdesh aid station.  I just wanted to take the time to thank you for sending out all the goodies you have sent us.  I my self have been devouring the penuts you sent as they are one of my favorite snacks.  It has been a real joy and blessing to get your packages and we are real appreciative.  I happen to be from Florida myself and have been to Bradenton.  I used to live over on the east coast in Melbourne.  I went to college for a couple of years in Lakeland which is closer to you.  Man do I miss Florida!  Especially this time a year when everyone is out and about enjoying the water activities.  We have enjoyed the SNL dvd set you sent out to us.  We have sat around the past couple of nights watching them together and having a lot of laughs so thank you for that.  I hope you and your wife enjoy your weekend and we all look forward to hearing from you soon!

Thank you very much for the magazines and especially the SNL discs.  Our PA was talking about the very first skit they ever did a few times and when he I told him you sent it he was excited.  The food of course is being happily devoured by soldier and local alike when they come in to be seen.  How did your back surgery go?  I hope you're not laid up for too long while you recover.  So what was your job in the Air Force, and where were you stationed.  In my previous MOS I spent 3 years at Misawa Air Base in Japan, so I know a little bit about the wild blue yonder.  Please let me know how you are doing and thank you again for your support.


P.S.  I attached a picture of our "golf" course.  I thought you might get a kick out of it.  That’s me putting.
