    No. Most PXs sell everything from pregnancy tests to stereos.

    95% of care packages are not needed

    why would it matter if you can maintain your hair in a combat zone, you should be preoccupied with other issues like maintaining your existence.

    Who gives a fuck what they send? At least they are being thoughtful, and trying to fill a perceived void in soldier care. I would rather have people send 1 million boxes full of sand, than people sit at home and not send anything. Sometimes the thought is greater than the result.

    I just think it is rather raciest that they are only thinking about "women of color" what about all the other women who want to get their "hair did"?:hsugh: dont you think that maybe they should get pkgs aswell?

    Whoever sends the gift chooses what to send. Get out of here with that "Lets not hurt anyone's feelings" crap.

    Racist? So, the people who send maxim magazine to soldiers, are they sexist? And if they are being sexist should we stop the packages?

    I would send whatever people wanted... I would not be part of a group who excluded others... based on race or gender. :o I think it is wrong of others to do so..

    They aren't elitists, they just have good taste.
