good freebie:thumbsup::stocking::gift:
I thought they'd ended this - remember sending shoe boxes of stuff to my friend in Iraq many years ago. Great!
Everyone should vote this hot to get it noticed more and more. Royal Mail doing something good, in the light of all the negative publicity at the moment.
can anyone tell me roughly how long postage is to Afghan?

OK if you actually support the war effort IMO, which both the soldier AND the poster are.

I feel my tax should not be wasted in Iraq or Afganistan - after all, whats in it for us (Oil?)

Are you saying that free postage is waste of your tax money? Or are you saying the whole war with Afgan (Iraq is now over) is a waste?
Hot from me,
soldiers are out there doing a job. They do not make the decision as to why they go, they just get on with it and I think we should support them for that.
Its the politicians that need to be giving the answers!

if you dont want to stand behind our soldiers - feel free to stand in front of them.
