Request a Care Package

  • Don't worry, info won't be used on your package.
  • Not asking for your MOS. Please tell us what is it you do on a daily basis you can tell a civilian without violating OPSEC?
  • We support ALL branches, even though NAVY is the best!!! LOL
  • Please make sure that your address contains EVERYTHING we need to get your package to you.
  • The reason we ask - Do you want a stocking hat if you're stationed in Kenya? How about some hot weather gear for Poland? We can figure it out from the ZIP but please save us the extra time and effort. Play nice!!
  • What state do you call home? We're "homeported" in Oklahoma. Why would a former Navy Sailor live in landlocked OK, you ask? Fell in love with an Okie gal when she wrote me a letter during the first Gulf War.
  • MM slash DD slash YYYY
    This is so we make sure we can get your care package to you while you are still at the same location and able to receive your package. We place a "Give to Any Chaplain" sticker on each box so that if you are already on your way home, it will be distributed to someone else who might not otherwise be getting mail. Thought you would want it that way. Right?
  • This is a requirement!!! If you don't have a .mil address, please don't bother asking. We're small and have limited funds so can only help US Military. Sorry.
  • Cars? Golf? Woodworking? Hunting and Fishing? Cooking? Finance? Dogs? Etc. We'll try to send you some magazines you'll enjoy.
  • What type of building - tent, hard stand building, container? Do you have electricity? Good chow? It helps us know what you might need in your box.
  • If you like M&Ms better than Skittles, let us know. If you're allergic to peanuts, this is the place for that info. If you want a Ferrari - yeah, good luck with that!!! The more info you give, the better we can design a box especially for you.
  • Our message to you - We want you to know we sure appreciate you for doing the difficult jobs your nation requests of you. THANK YOU for keeping us safe and providing our freedoms!!! Come home safely and soon. We're praying for you all!
  • We love supporting our Military and we're happy to try to meet your needs. May we ask a small favor in return? We don't hear back from "over there" very often. Our members are thrilled to hear messages from you so please let us hear something from you in ^ this ^ spot or by USPS. We're making a memento wall for our office and would like to include a coin or patch from your unit. Would you please put something into an envelope and send to....Ray & Karen Stark 2216 NW 157th Terrace Edmond, OK 73013? If you send a unit patch or coin, you will receive something from us in return. Thank you for sharing so those who helped make this accomplishment possible can have a special memory of you.

    Thank you for everything you do for us!

    • Karen Stark says:

      Matthew, What we do for you doesn’t even come close to what you guys (men and women – in OK, we say “guys”) in the Military are willing to do for us!!!

      We’re honored!!!

    you guys make the distance feel a little less during the rough times. hearing your name called out during mail call is such a lift to your spirits knowing someone back home cares and appreciates you.

  5. Enrique Mendiola says:

    Thank you. I look forward to sharing with others.

    • Karen Stark says:

      Your message didn’t surprise me. What would really surprise me would be to hear one of you say, “Just letting you know that I’m NOT going to share anything. I’m hogging everything for myself”. LOL

      We know how it plays out over there. You take a few things out of the box and then you announce to the group, “Hey, Everyone, come grab you something.”

      Am I right?

      We’re so glad we could help. Special Christmas packages will be next!!!

    Thank you all for what you do. I cannot stress how much people like me appreciate organizations that help guys and girls like us out from just the kindness in their hearts. As a National Guard Soldier on his 2nd deployment having to put my life on pause to go overseas can at times be especially difficult but knowing how many resources there are for Soldiers out there somehow makes my heart warmer in this already incredibly hot desert. I love this organization in particular because you really can sense the care for the individual in the way the forum was written. Everyone in some capacity wants to feel special and I can with certainty that being here it is not the easiest thing to attain. I will say it again thank you so much for all that you do.

    • Karen Stark says:

      Sean, you are too, too kind. We do what we do just as a way of thanking all of you for our freedoms. We owe you all such a big debt of gratiude and this is just our way to say THANK YOU, we love all of you!!!
