Mail & Packages to your Recruit

"We discourage sending anything to your recruit in boot camp other than cards and letters. If your recruit asks you to send something i.e. protein bars, then that's between you and your recruit.

"It should go without being said, if you send your recruit anything other than cards and letters, then you will probably be soliciting an IT session between them and the drill instructors" - Marine
