Re: Questions on R&C

Good morning,
  I may be in the wrong section for this question.  My son just got to Graham R&C this past Tuesday.  I would like to send him some books or magazines.  Should I send them one at a time or is it okay to send a few at once?  How should they be packaged so there are no issues. 
Thank you in advance for any help.

You can send him a few at a time. They can be sent in regular manilla envelopes.

Just remember whatever you send, if he doesn't have room,  he won't be able to take them with to bootcamp and make sure you don't send him anything with contraband in it.  They normally can get up to 5 at once, but you may want to call Graham to be sure.  A couple puzzle books etc may help him pass the time.
