Just received this from Andy serving in Germany, Bulgaria, Black Sea and wherever…
“We still have something like 5000 troops in Romania and another 6000 in Poland; around 100,000 in all of Europe – but as we speak, the first units that arrived when the war kicked off are now headed home and new ones are coming in to replace them.
As always, your care packages are a huge hit, all over. Here on this base we only have a small PX with some of the necessities, but with 5000 troops – including the Italian air force, as well as French and Romanians – nothing lasts long on the shelves.
We also have soldiers and chaplains asking for care packages at remote locations in Poland and Slovakia and elsewhere.
As I may have mentioned, the popular items are little pocket meals and small cans, microwave-ables, simple ready-made canned food and beef jerky, chips, pretzels, popcorn, corn nuts and peanuts, sweet stuff like MnMs – anything that’ll hold over a soldier who missed a meal at the mess hall, really Anything like that is a big hit. Socks, coffee, stamped envelope/paper/pen, Girl Scout Cookies.
They’re living in tents, for the most part, with no kitchen facilities, but There’s usually a microwave oven somewhere nearby.”
Please note, we don’t need instant oatmeal packets or tuna, as they are in supply at the mess hall.
