I know how you feel. I check that site several times a day.
I just sent 3 boxes from the post office near work; I have to say that the clerks there aren't as nice as the one in my home neighborhood's post office (who, besides that, looks like Richard Gere). I don't like the way they don't put the customs form across a seam.
I sent 15 boxes of single-serving Lipton to Go powder to the same naval officer as the coffee package three weeks ago, instant soup to some medics in Afghanistan. That's an Ob/Gyn facility, so the movies I sent were female-oriented, along with music videos of my two principes de amor. The third box went to the marine corporal I've previously mentioned. That has books, razors, Excedrine migraine, and some hygiene products.
My friend in North Carolina has a son-in-law who's stationed with some guys who don't get anything. I recommended she tell him about Anysoldier.com for them.
It gets to me, too, about how young some of them are. It's scary.
