The packages are great when and if you receive them. 26-months in Iran/Iraq then 8-months in the VA Hospital trying to learn to walk again hoping to fish soon. It was hard for my Marines in all 6 campaigns I was in and it is even harder coming back with disability pay being really low. Trying to catch up on fishing equipment and gear is terrible, even after 27 years as a Marine Corps Combat Officer. It is hard there and it is hard here. Please show your support for every Soldier/Sailor that put time in. Especially combat detail. My biggest challenge now is buying these new baits, rods, line, etc with 1585.00 per month? Things aren't like it was before I left stateside. So yes, send packages do whatever you can for ones who puts everything they have to protect our country.
