Mother requests care package for son in Iraq

We recently received a letter from a mother whose son, Timothy --, is currently deployed in Iraq. She wants to give her son a care package of beef jerky. She was looking around the Internet for ways to help. As a mom, she knows and feels, in a very personal way, the sacrifice of our hard working troops. She knows firsthand what a care package can do, how they can make a soldier's day, and improve morale.
