Past issues of SWAT needed for soldier in Iraq

Hello,

I have 2 soldiers that I am sending packages to; one is in Iraq and another is in Kuwait. Both are in LE in the civilian world when not serving their reserve duty.

Among the items they have requested are SWAT magazines and other related gun mags. So far all I have been able to find are NRA rifleman mags.

If anyone can part with any good gun magazines it would be greatly appreciated. I can reimburse shipping and they can be mailed as "printed matter" from the USPS.

Thanks for anything you can do; these guy's still have 6 months or more of 125 degree heat bsfore they can get back here for a cold beer!


Regards,
Charlie

These guy's are gonna love the mags, it's one of the things that they miss the most.
I just sent the guy in Iraq 8 new pmags and a sling swivel for his m4 plus a bunch of gun cleaning stuff and some jerky; he's at an entry control point.

Ok, ok, so this is a few months old.

I had to post on it.

I've put myself in a position to where I make it my business to take packages like this and distribute them to areas where there is no PX.

It's called "Operation Care," (where I am now...last deployment it was something else in a different location).

The main focus of it is to take what was FORMERLY known as "Any Solider packages," and ship 'em out. A secondary focus is donating items soldiers cannot use (clothing and school items, mostly) to local families.

I can say, by looking at the pictures, that seems to be quite a well thought out box that should make anyone happy to get.

Good work and thank you for that!

-David
