    BUMP! I wanna know what's going on too. And why we weren't allowed to "organize" sending packages to the other soldiers in his unit.

    And why was it that the entire thread was removed and not just locked if a rule or something was broken?

    Just my opinion but it was removed since the address & such was in the thread & mods may not have wanted people sending loads of care packages to someone that wasn't verified. I did not run the warrants name through ako but he is a commissioned officer. I know everyone enjoys a care package sometimes. But I personally believe if care packages are going to be sent to random soldiers they should go to lower enlisted first. The guy listed that he was with a CID unit. I he is job is an investigator he should be able to locate chicken feed--- just my opinion as a former soldier & an army wife. I know the soldier did not attempt to soliciate anything but I also know that if my husband was to run across one of his soldiers in a similar situation he would not be a happy comander. Random care packages are usually sent to a vague address & distributed as the unit sees fit. Single soldier & lower enlisted first since they don't get as many packages.

    Per the BYC rules (which have been established based on years of experience and previous issues of members being scammed by solicitations for donations). While we realize not all solicitations are scams, there is no way to figure out which are true and genuine, versus which are not, so the rule stands that none are permitted.
