Support The Troops!!!
Why didn't I think of this before? After all, it's my taxes paying for these AJ freebies.
Now let's see, what can I send... photocopied photos of dead and mutilated Iraqi babies, or would that be a turn-on for these guys? How about a printout of my blog - the entire six years?
Ocean, Sky and Khaki
One care pack, ready for addressing. That address again:
“An Australian Soldier”
Australian Defence Force
SYDNEY NSW 2890
On three occasions to date, the postie has failed to read the address properly, and has tried to charge me $7 postage. If that happens to you, just politely point out that it is going to an "AFPO". They should understand what that means, and they'll rapidly backtrack and take it for free.
And don't forget:
The one thing this pack is lacking is reading material. As even a very lightweight magazine (Economist, Spectator) can weigh 250 grams, you have to be careful that you don't burn the bulk of your 2kg allowance with paper.Yeah, better to send Baby Wipes, I guess. But will they appreciate the sarcasm?
