Via U. S. Congressman Bill Huizenga’s newsletter:
“Yesterday, I joined my colleagues from across the nation in building care packages for our men and women in uniform. These care packages contain toiletries and items that are not readily available while serving in combat zones across the globe. The USO has been a vital partner not only for our men and women in combat, but for the families of our soldiers here at home that need to make ends meet while their loved ones are in harms way.”
Why it is up to volunteers to ensure that servicemembers have basic goods available to them? Why have the extra niceties that care packages traditionally included been crowded out by basic needs items?
