I was just on sgt-grit web site and would like to use their adopt a Marine package. Has anyone done this with them, and could let me know their experience.

Thank you and happy birthday to all

Don't need to adopt a Marine. I have one now. My son, Troy G. Young Sgt.

I have picked up several addresses and sent out my own packages and letters, but I have not done the adopt a Marine package with Sgt. Grit. I go out to www.anymarine.com (http://www.anymarine.com) and then I can read the requests from the Marines themselves and choose who I want to help out. I know that site works great and have even had my sons class receive letters from the Marines that they sent pacakges to.

i dont adopt a marine either.. I usually send packages to my friends and they usually include a few things..... smokes, dip, tampons (started as a joke but a buddy got injured and they happened to use it to stop the bleeding), and porn......

I sent a buddy of mine some Playboys and they confiscated it and told him it was illegal and if he receives anymore, they'll ship him home! I said,'Is that all it takes? Want some more?' But I see nothing has changed over there since the first Gulf War. Playboys?! Thats not even considered porn...is it?

Thank you for your answer to my question. I just want you to know I have just sent several items to some great Marines.

Last I knew they sold 'em at the PX, but it was illegal to go through customs.
