Presumably you mean to send some "gizmoes" to the troops as a citizen-supporter?

I can't really think of anything off hand, except for food items, although I don't know what the regulations are anymore regarding sending cookies/etc to military.

But since so many of our boys and girls  are stationed in the Middle East/etc right now...Maybe if you contacted the military or the USO, they might be able to point you in the right direction.

BTW, I just happened to be watching a program on TV and a good direction was stated pretty clearly. Aside from the obvious dangers...The number one problem most US soldiers endure (as currently deployed) is heat. Make something that helps them to get cool.

I'm not sure I understand. Do you want to make something useful to give to someone in the Army, or are you looking for crafts that someone in the military can do for themselves?

I thought he was talking about sniper craft, foxhole digging craft, grenade tossing craft, unarmed combat craft, first aid craft and improvised weapon craft.

You completely forgot about typing craft, filling out forms craft, ironing creases craft, and squaring cap craft.
