    How legal is this? Is there a limit on how much to send?

    Recomendation on what company to send the care package through, with or without the liquor?

    He seemed to be telling me to just send it in it's original packaging. Legal may have been the wrong term, I guess I'm more wondering if he can get into trouble for me sending him liquor. I know he can get in trouble drinking it, but that's his choice. He'll do it anyway, so i might as well send him some nice scotch so he can enjoy it.

    He shouldn't get in trouble for you sending it, but he might if he drinks it.

    just put vodka in an empty bottle of water and glue the seal back to the cap
    and don't put your name or return address on the customs form
    you're solid

    Why even bother with a mouth wash bottle? If you must send alcohol put it in any solid colored bottle like a shampoo bottle or something of the sort. Even posession of alcohol is a violation of general order one so it isn't worth it. But I will be able to drink again in three months so I don't care.

    Oh and depending upon where your marine friend is stationed he could just get in good with some turkish guys. They have everything he could want.

    Heh, I didn't even realize the pun at the time. Somewhere along the line, I turned into an old fart... it was just a reference to the TV show.

    [oldfart]Lemme tell you about my times holding down a position with nothing more than my 45, my M-60 pole-vault incident, backing my M-113 into a tree at full reverse throttle (that one hurt!)....[/oldfart]

    33. So my unit had old cast-off stuff. My rifle had been made in either 68 or 69. As I was leaving, my platoon was transitioning to the 10 Hummer TOE and trading in our M-113's and M-901's.
