Hi, I'm PFC Erin Elder; from Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm answering a question from Jay from Tinian, Montana. His question is: "What can family members send you?"

Family members can send you anything that you may need while you're here at basic training. Such as toiletries such as shampoo, condition and things that you would need on a daily basis, but you can't always get here. So if you have, like, certain products that you would prefer your family members can send that to you here. Foods-- not so much, all the time, I would not recommend food. That's about it.
