My firstborn child finished boot camp in South Carolina, then went to Virginia to do his combat training. Its ironic because the day he graduates from his combat school in Virginia is the same day as his birthday, Nov. 3rd. I want to mail him a package for his birthday, and so does the rest of my family. What should we buy him as far as clothing to be prepared for the cold weather?

You also have to remember that the military he is in also provides a lot of those clothes too for his uniforms for duty so he may not need too many things extra--maybe a few outfits. He is going to be limited on how much he can take with him because he more than likely will be in similar barricks setting like in training camp. Just keep it simple. If he does not know what he will need until he gets there, then send him some money towards the extra clothes for off duty time.

Weather in Germany is quite similar to weather in the US, generally the midwest and high plains areas. I'd ask him what he prefers, and stick within those preferences.
