I subscribe to PA Game News (a publication of the Pennsylvania Game Commission) and Pennsylvania Outdoor News (hunting and fishing.) If anybody knows of a soldier in Iraq who would enjoy reading them, please PM me their military address (after checking with them first.) Otherwise, these magazines go out in the recycling.

I did this a while back through Any Soldier and sent several years of Acoustic Guitar, Guitar Player, various car mags and some AZ Highways mags. Great outfit.

Dang, I must have 10,000 car magazines in my basement... we should send these to the guys in Iraq. Some are pretty old, but it would be good reading.

When I got here back in December, there were care boxes. Now there are none. I am here in Iraq just North of Baghadad. I would be glad to make sure the soldiers get any thing you want to send.I also can provide pictures so you can see how you helped. If interested IM me for the APO address. It takes about 10 days for priorty to get here. Thanks Royce OIF

I think any USO can distrbute mags.

Ive been sending mine to soldiers I know. Except Im not sending them Popular Science or Civil War history.

Call your Legion or DAV and ask for local soldiers addy's.

***FYI**** Post Office has a $7.00 box. It holds alot of mags. 7 dollars anywhere in the US. Even APO's

When shipping, the best to use is Priority flat rate boxes. Remember, you are only sending (paying) to an APO or FPO, usually California. After that it's military transport.

USO and DAV is great but I think whatever you send will get there faster if you send it yourself....directly.

That's a good idea Turkey Master. I'm a frequent flyer on a dozen airlines. Most times I don't earn enough points on many of them to get any trips so they send me a collection of magazine offers. I'll forward these to anysoldier.com in the future.
