My brother is currently serving somewhere in Iraq. I am going to send a care package, and I would like suggestions from those who have served and/or sent care packages on what to send. I'm planning on sending a few decks of cards, some sunflower seeds, power bars, dried jerky, peanuts etc. Stuff that can last in the heat for a while. I also want to send powdered drink mixes, specifically Gatorade or other sport type drinks. Are individual packets preferred, or can I send a small container of powder? Any other suggestions of what to send? My brother doesn't smoke, but should I send cigarettes, for use as 'currency'? Thanks.
