Packages from home

Packages from home! Nothing will lift the spirits of a young man or woman, serving in some remote duty station, like a thoughtful gift from the folks. Picked up on the fly from the family home in a small town in Texas, these cookies, or socks, or the latest local newspaper, will be on the Fast Mail tonight. And tomorrow: APO New York!
