We just did a collection at work for some marines that we're shipping for Valentines Day as we were told that they don't get much for that holiday. During our work Christmas party on Friday we're packaging it all up. Someone that knows one of them personally asked specifically what they wanted and he sent us a list. One of the items on their list that I provided was a nerf football. Besides snacks, they also asked for new pillows and even twin bed sheets.
I also sent them copies of my recent 4x4 magazines (JP, Peterson's, Four Wheeler).
