Heh-heh-heh. I don't know why but that made me laugh. I guess I need to get out more.
Yes, among the very no-no items is alcohol. Since I'm doing this as a part of a bigger group, I'd hate to do something that would endanger them. That, and they know exactly who is sending what to who, and I'd hate to lose the chance to send her things to people over there.
Here's a list of things you can't send:
~You will be responsible for the contents of your package! We have
taken on the responsibility of keeping track of who is sending packages
to each soldier. If you send inappropriate materials, it will be traced
back to you, and you could be held accountable. Inappropriate material
includes pornography, alcohol, firearms, and political or religious
~Other banned items are glass containers and pork products or
byproducts of any kind. Please donít send chocolate after May or
And the suggested items list is here:
One thing I've forgotten to ask that I meant to was how long it takes to fill out a customs form to overseas and if it's that complicated. I've never done one before (from here, although I once did one from England but I figure they're different.)
Also restricted because of her location are:
C1 - Obscene Articles & Comics Obscene articles, prints, paintings, cards, films, videotapes, etc., and horror comics and matrices are prohibited.
E2 - Objectional Material Any matter depicting nude or seminude persons, pornographic or sexual items, or nonauthorized politi-cal materials is prohibited. Although religious materials contrary to the Islamic faith are prohibited in bulk quantities, items for the personal use of the addressee are permissible. (Angie's note: Which is sad, because I had the Republican Pornography Bible Complete With Religious Reference all ready to go. )
H1 - Pork Prohibited Pork or pork by-products are prohibited. (I don't know why but this one makes me laugh. I mean, I know why it's prohibited, but for some reason any time I see the word Pork in print it makes me laugh. Plus, the idea of "pork by-products" is just beyond my comprehension.
I'm also not supposed to send live animals. There's a joke there but I'll be darned if I know what it is (or can say it in mixed company.)
