    I will state right up front that is only related to firearms in the remotest sense, i.e. that military personnel carry them.

    I first posted this in this thread: http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=15655

    I see the subject of "Sending stuff to the troops" keeps coming up, though, so here it is again.

    Bottom Line: No more mailing to "Any Servicemember."

    I was told yesterday at the USO Center at Seatac Airport that they are working closely with the families of deployed personnel, many of whom are hurting; if they don't need the donation, they CAN send it to GI Joe/Jane.

    If you're not in the Puget Sound region I would suggest that you contact the nearest installation and/or Reserve Center and see if they have a way to get donations to family members and/or friends who CAN send stuff to deployed personnel.
    The Family Support Group (or whatever that particular service calls it) will probably be your Point of Contact.

    (And if you DO have a local contact URL, email address, or phone number, please post it here!)

    One inaccuracy in the article: The Seatac USO Lounge did close it's doors once, for about 2 hours, while the Port of Seattle inspected for damage after the Nisqually quake of February 2001.
