If you plan on sending some Christmas gifts or a care packages to troops in Afghanistan or Iraq, Tuesday is the deadline to make sure those packages get there in time for the holidays.
The North Carolina chapter of Give To The Troops says that they need your help to make Christmas special for hundreds of troops. Recreational items such as dvd's and board games, as well as items to help keep the troops warm such as socks, blankets, and sheets are most in need. The organization's director says plans to send all of their packages no later than the tenth.
If you plan on sending items overseas to family members who are not serving in Iraq or Afghanistan the deadline to get those packages out is December the tenth.
