Are you looking for a wonderful alternative to a traditional military gift
but you just can’t think of what to send?
Maybe you just can’t find “the right one,” or maybe you just want to be a
little bit different than other people buying military gifts.
If so, you can pleasantly surprise a military friend or family member
who’s serving away from home with a military care package.
Choosing the perfect gift
Sending your deployed loved one a military care package puts you in the driver’s seat because you’re not tied down to choosing from standard military gifts like rings, watches and lapel pins.
With a military care package you can choose the items you want to include and then assemble them into a festive gift package.
Or you can select a standard or customized military care package that’s already assembled and ready to ship.
The choice is yours, because an array of pre-assembled packages, as well as a variety of components that you can assemble from scratch, are all available online.
Either way, pre-assembled or home-made, the military care package you send will be received with joy by the military men and women you care about.
A military care package is a unique, affordable way to brighten the day of any soldier, sailor or airman that’s away from home.
It’s the ultimate way to express your affection and support for deployed military personnel and it offers a welcome taste of home.

To help pass the time.
And one of the most important things that can be included in any military care package is a pre-paid international phone card, treasured by those abroad because they furnish our gallant men and women with the ability to directly communicate with the people they care for at home.
