"Basic Necessities from food to razors and toiletries would be greatly appreciated. We are unable to bring in large amounts of military supplies and most of what we need is procured through the localeconomy. Not only is it a strain on the US personnel to adjust to local food grades and pathogens, but it is also a strain on the local economy in the area when we compete with the indigenous people. Any support is greatly appreciated. The first (photo) is a spot that we shop at in the market we don't get MRE's or anything like that, the bottom is a photo we took shortly after getting here."
