Friends in the military ask for all sorts of things.  Our church collects baby wipes, energy bars, books, magazines, sample size shampoos and such.  Any and all homemade foods that can travel well are welcome.  But I  have the same question for those on a ship.  Can we even send anything when their ship is deployed?  I'm thinking no, but this is our first go round.  Mine is on ship, they are docked now but what do/can we send?  I figure when he's in port I can send anything, though he'll have access to things he needs.

Wow, this is helpful Pete.  So when their ship is out, they can still get stuff?

I have a question? My son is deployed- Uss. Enterprise. I know things to send, but forgot how to ADDRESS the box for him to get it. Last time I put the wrong address, but put his house address on the return, he received it when he came back. Thanks for any help..Fay

You can get the ships address from their website, you need to add your Sailors name and box #.

http://www.enterprise.navy.mil/

Click the link, it will take you to the appropriate page with the ships address and give you the information you need to correctly address it to your Sailor.

My Sailor is also aboard the USS Enterprise.
