Check out "party ideas" under the search area. There used to be a bunch of ideas. We had an "anchors aweigh" theme. I used printer paper with a patriotic border. Most bakeries also have an edible US Navy emblem which can be put on a cake. I had several cards there for this friends to write a note on, then later when he was in boot camp I sent them along with me lettter. Also - once you get his address, print them out and hand to any friends, family, church members so that they can write him a note. They live for mail while in boot camp. Hope this helps you. Good luck.
thank u so much for the ideas. Thats great
