    My nephew has been in Iraq for a while now so I thought I'd send him something. What are some good items to include that would be appreciated over there?

    Depending on where he is at, he can pretty much buy everything he wants or needs himself.. But some of the things that always went fast where i was at: socks, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, hard candy, sunflower seeds, magazines, hand sanitizer, new release/burned audio CD's, and anything with half-naked womens in it...

    No


    But they make sure to get you when you return.


    But if something was to happen, there would be a real shit storm.


    My 1st deployment we had a Marine end up drunk over there and stole a vehicle. She ended up crashing it and in the hospital for about a month because of serious injuries.
    After that she went in the brig for about 6-7 months and was court martialed.

    Now she is still ruined. :rofl:

    I had a piss test while i was in iraq..just once though.

    I would recommend sending like seasons of tv shows or something for him to watch. It lasts awhile and will keep him busy. I watched tons of them while i was there

    The bde I work for did it every other month. They also get you when you come back from leave after deployment so if you fail you can't collect VA benefits.

    Porn, cigarettes, dip, chew, porn, alcohol in listerine bottles, bags of brewer's yeast. That's about all I ever asked for.
