I have already shared most of the box with the guys out here. It's always a nice morale boost to get a little slice of home in the mail. I had the box open, explained where it came from to a few guys and asked that they take anything they needed. I have a few packs of cheez-its and a Ramen left glad to see smiles around base again. A few of the new guys took and split up the deodorants, toothbrushes/paste and razors. The candy was gobbled up between like 20 people.
I want to send huge thank you to moddedmustangs.com from the Guided Missile Destroyer USS Cole currently on station in the Mediterranean Sea. Yesterday we received onboard the biggest and best care package I've ever seen in the 18 1/2 years I've been in the Navy. You guys went above and beyond and know that we appreciate the effort more than you could imagine. We have been deployed 5 months and still have about 2 months to go defending Americas interests and doing our nations business half way around the world. We all appreciate what you have done for us and I think I speak for the entire Engineering Department onboard USS Cole in that we look forward to coming home to the greatest nation in the world!
