there's no Taco Bell... there's a Pizza Inn, Subway, and Hot dog stand. on the LSA (Army's Life Support Area) there's a McDonalds, KFC, and a few others... but the DFAC (Dining Facility) food is pretty good. cept you only get actual BEEF once in a while... the rest of the time it's Camel... and NO it doesn't taste the same.
They most likely will not accept gift cards from the US. Its a TCN contracted. Im pretty sure that they wouldnt know whatto do with em even if they did get em. Maybe something more along the lines of something to flavor the water. Or something that cant be bought there. IE Rice crispy treats, Salt water taffy..Those things are just a few thing i got while i was there...It helped alot. Also maybe something to put on food..IE different kinds of sauce..They have A-1..etc..Just a few ideas from my time there.
No but he is not in the sandbox. He has access to everything he needs except for his bike.
Good call. I think it would be great to do this for everybody but then again there are charities that do that. We haven't done it for many of the other military peeps that have been there... but we'll start somin new.
But I have emailed Subway for example to see if a soldier can use a gift card purchased here and use it in Iraq.
Does somebody else want to contact some of the other fast food places?
I can start taking the collection now.. I ask a few things.
Send you user name along with the money.
Send what you want and don't worry about it being too little or too much.

Depending on how much we get we'll have to decide what to get. If it will just be the gift card or some more other stuff.
Plus lets work out some more ideas. Feedback from other soldiers that have been there will help GREATLY!
