My name is Joe Wright, I am a VW nut have owned many. I currently own a 51 CC deluxe and a 62 RHD vert. Im in Afghanistan as a govt. contractor. I am on a base that has no atm or even a shop to buy things from. I've noticed that some soldiers dont receive care packages from home, so I would like to see if anyone would like to give back to the soldiers over here. Simple things we take advantage of everyday would be GREATLY appreciated. The soldiers would love stuff like snacks, cookies, crackers, chips, basically junk foods they cant get here. Stuff like you'd buy at 7-11. Junk foods and what not, chocolates are not good as it will melt! Magazines would be great (no porn) as its not allowed. Dvd's you dont watch anymore or video games that you dont play anymore. The soldiers would love these things! ! !

If anyone would like to send a package that would be great. For everyone that sends a package I will pay the shipping costs. I can send you a paypal or however you would like. It's the only way I can really help. Get your churches involved or your neighbors. These soldiers work around the clock non-stop and deserve to have someone care. Please help if you can. I thank you for your support. I will distribute the packages to the soldiers. I dont ask for anything for myself I simply want to give back to the soldiers that are here away from their families and hopefully give them a little moral booster.

Send Packages to:

Joe Wright
E Co. 1/502 (Oshkosh FSR)
FOB WILSON
APO AE 09370

I can remember how cool it was to get cookies etc from home @ Boy Scout Camp in the Summer! Dancing The APO address is not that expensive to ship to. I'm not that flush with cash, but I think I'll send you a box of Trail Mix etc and some used books/magazines? Mike
