To all the supporters,
Thanks you very much for the packages. The guys greatly appreciate them. I am now known as the candy man, since I bring a cup of candy with me every morning and pass it out to the linguists and gate guards. I know one of the JR guys was asking for K-cups the other day, so I told him I would add that in this update. Merry Christmas and Happy new year to all of you.

Thanks for the support,
Huge thanks to everyone that has sent packages. If you have sent stuff and I fail to mention you in the shout out I'm sorry. Fortunately from all the support hygiene items are no longer required (we have ran out of room and give stuff to other units around camp daily), so thank you from all of the guys/gals here.

First of thank you for making this possible for people to get in touch with us. We have already received a few care packages. Big shout out to Ms. Keith from Ohio. She did way more than she had to. Enjoyed getting a box full of letters from kids and teachers around the USA.

There is only one restroom/laundry/shower location. Most of the other times we use PORT-A-JOHNS. So hand sanitizer is very useful. There is not a lot of healthy snack options for the guys that diet. We do not have access to microwaves but do have a refrigerator that is shared. Hygiene items are always a plus as the local shop does not offer much. Laundry soap PODS work great as the supplied soap clots and cakes to clothing. Other than that i know the guys are always happy to get snacks and other little trinkets.
