Program sends ‘packages’ to troops

Anyone wishing to send a gift to service members may do so through the Gifts from the Army and Air Force Exchange Service’s Homefront program. The AAFES program reduces mail expenses and ensures that virtually all funds earmarked for the troops go to the troops. For a flat shipping and handling charge of just $4.95, you can send as much as you want through a lightweight gift certificate that can be redeemed for anything in the BX/PX.
Gifts From the Homefront can be sent to deployed troops by logging on to http://www.aafes.org or calling (877) 770-4438. The gift certificates are not limited to friends and family. They can also be distributed to any service member through the Air Force Aid Society, American Red Cross, Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes and Fisher House.
