What kinds of things are we allowed to send them (goodies?)
absolutely nothing... sorry! in fact, anything you send will be taken away (they might not even see it)
even sending "singing cards" can be a problem (one division had to do pushups until the battery died when one recruit received one of those cards)
For things like pictures and newspaper articles, I remember it was recommended that it was better to just print on regular paper paper and include as a letter - regular sized envelope (and avoid colored envelopes)
Of course, every division is different, and sometimes you have to wonder if they really are as picky about these things or if it's just to scare us moms into compliance - but definitely, no "things" that aren't just paper - no treats...
