THE THIRD ANNUAL
OUR GOAL IS TO SEND A LITTLE HOME AS A WAY OF SAYING “THANK YOU” TO A RANDOM SOLDIER.
HERE IS HOW OPERATION RUCKSACK WORKS:
1) PURCHASE A RUCKSACK.
These are common, personal backpacks used by military personnel with optional colors in green, tan and black and typically cost around $20 on ebay.com or amazon.com.
2) FILL THEM WITH THE FOLLOWING SUPPLIES.
1 Shaving lotion
1 Bars of soap/body wash
4 Pairs of socks (size 6-12)
3 Boxes water flavor packets
1 Book for down time
1 Hand-written letter
1 Tube of toothpaste
2 Tubes of lip balm
1 Gilette Fusion Razor
1 Pack of baby wipes
1 Foot powder
5 Misc. sauce packets
1 Magazine (Hunting, etc.)
1 Down-time game (frisbee, football, etc.)
