DEPLOYMENT DATE: January, 2021
I contacted BAB several months before deployment to see if they would be willing to send care packages. We were given dozens of customized boxes before leaving–items we requested and items we did not know we wanted or needed. The boxes were stuffed with Mountain Houses, condiments, hand warmers, trail mix, GU, beef jerky, wipes, pots, pans, and (most importantly) scented candles. Candles may seem like a luxury, but they hold their value as deployment wears on. The candles made by BAB became the object of extreme betting by the end of our time overseas. In addition to these wonderful boxes, the BAB team is flexible with timelines and is determined to send boxes to you and your guys wherever you are. Check them out–they will exceed your expectations.

I can’t say thank you enough. Bad ass boxes supported us with amazing care packages throughout our entire deployment. The care packages always showed up with things that were in great need or want, whether that be hand and boot warmers or just good cookies and candy to boost moral. The communication was always spot on to ensure we knew our packages were coming and allow us to make sure they didn’t get “lost”. Even when we didn’t know what to ask for BAB knew what to send. They always found a way to get us the things we needed or really wanted. If you deploy without contacting Bad Ass Boxes, it’s your loss.

We just appreciate everything you’ve done for us and the support you have for us … Badass Boxes has been a force multiplier for this team and even members of our subordinate teams. We honestly can’t thank you enough for everything! … Thank you and your Team for making this holiday season special for us!

I contacted Bad Ass Boxes after seeing a leftover candle in one of our Landcruisers. I looked it up and asked a friend about it. He had used them before and swore by them so I contacted the company on the phone. The president of the company personally answered the phone and walked me through the process. She was very helpful and it was refreshing talking to an individual rather than going through a maze of e-mail chains.
We have received care packages before from other organizations and while nice and caring, they didn’t really cater to the needs or wants of the special operations community. As stated above, BAB spoke with us about what we liked and needed. It was perfect. Instead of the usual items like candy, broken cookies and retired DVDs, BAB sent us exactly what we wanted and needed (Mountain Houses, Gu packets, et al.). Most of the time care packages are left in an area for people to grab stuff and they remain there for months and weeks at a time. Or they get shipped to a unit and the support staff rips them open before the operators get a chance to look through the goods. Bad Ass Boxes worked directly with the operators and made sure that we got what was sent.
Every time a BAB showed up, they were torn apart and everything was used and fast! People started asking me when the next shipment was coming in. I cannot recommend BAB enough to other SOF members. They were extremely friendly and really know what guys like us want while we were deployed.

This is my second deployment in which I have come to know and love BAD ASS Boxes. Y’all are far and away the best care package production out there. Getting to pick out the items that’ll suit the boys is an excellent idea. Every package gets picked clean and nothing’s wasted. It is obvious the amount of time and careful selection that goes into each BAD ASS Box. You guys know what’s up.
Thank you for the support and lifting our spirits.

Wanted to make sure to send a message and thank you for your continual support throughout our deployment. Badass boxes were by far the best care packages we received. Your diligence to seek out specific items which the platoon was in short supply of went above and beyond anything we’ve ever seen or could have asked for. Thank you so much for your time and effort. It’s very humbling to know there are badass folks like yourselves with such a willingness and motivation to support. Thank you!
DEPLOYMENT DATE: September, 2017
Wanted to say a HUGE thank you for taking care of my husband while he was gone. He is now home and the kids and him have been building lego sets you sent, reconnecting and bonding with each one. I would love to connect and also anything I can do to help and support and get the word about about all the good you are doing for our guys I am happy to.

Thank you so much for all of the boxes you sent us throughout deployment. The quality of food out here was pretty awful so having these boxes was a huge morale boost. I personally got sick whenever I ate the food out here so most of my meals consisted of things you guys sent out. I would probably be about 50 pounds lighter if it weren’t for you guys. Your packages made our undesirable living conditions somewhat desirable and on top of that its nice to know that there are people who really care about us and support what we are doing out here. So thanks again for all the boxes and the support you guys are amazing!
