Hi,
I have been baking for soldiers that are serving overseas.  The group I support seem to really have a sweet tooth.  I make all kinds of brownies and cookies and use one of those air tight seal machines and box them up and apparently they withstand the high temps.  One of my soldiers said that that chocolate chip cookies should still be sent because it is like getting them fresh from the oven. :)

Hi Christina! My son is in the Navy and has deployed on an aircraft carrier twice so far. I send baked goods to him every 2 weeks, and he said everyone enjoys whatever is sent. Even brownies taste good to them, after being in the mail for 2 plus weeks! On behalf of all men and women serving our country, thank you for doing this!

No, but a big possibility he'll be called out again this fall. It's bittersweet.
