    Hello all, and I apologize in advance for the mundane thread. I was wondering whether Midshipmen Candidates are allowed to receive CARE packages at NAPs during indoc, and if anyone knows any general guidelines (e.g. drink powder allowed but no sweets, things like that). I have been able to send CARE packages to plebes at USNA during Plebe Summer but I understand the rules might well be different at NAPS (or even by Company/Platoon).

    Many thanks!

    Found the answer in the NAPS Information Brochure -- no CARE packages during Indoc.

    Thanks. Academics just started today and people are just starting to get care packages. Just about anything can be sent as long as it's not a controlled substance (e.g. alcohol). Policies about packages are fairly uniform across the battalion. Honestly, care packages aren't needed much here. Just 3 blocks away is the comissary and the navy exchange where any food or miscellaneous items needed/wanted can be bought. One guy in my squad bought a kindle there a couple days ago. :yllol:
