The very first Soldier (whose name is Josh) and some of the Soldiers who were serving with him are shown in the photo above. They were deployed to a very small combat outpost in Afghanistan during 2010/2011. There was no PX and many times the Soldiers who were serving with him relied upon care packages for even their most basic personal needs. That was the beginning of J.O.S.H.
We have now supported thousands of deployed service members from all branches of the military. We still focus our efforts on supporting our troops who are serving in harm's way and those who do not have a PX/BX at their locations. We also love to ship to Chaplains because they often know which Soldiers need our support the most. A few of the Chaplains have also use our care packages to help establish or stock what they call a Free X. Service members go to the "Free X" to get whatever they need and don't have to pay for it! We think that's pretty awesome and we are thrilled to be just a small part of it.
We want to support as many of our troops as we possibly can. We often receive photos and/or letters from our troops with their care packages. We hope they enjoy their care packages as much as we love seeing the smiles on their faces.
