Deployed Soldier Care Packages Ideas
We have received numerous inquiries about sending items to our overseas deployed Iowa National Guard soldiers. The items below have been identified by our soldiers as items that they would like to receive. Normal toiletry items are available to most of the soldiers through supply channels and the post exchanges. The units' overseas addresses are listed lower on this page. We will remove unit addresses from this list approximately 30 days prior to the unit's redeployment to the United States. Please understand that the Iowa National Guard does not have the resources to provide mailing and shipping of items to the soldiers. The soldiers will greatly appreciate your support. Thank you!!!
