Please note:

This website was set up to get parcels to Australian Soldiers/Sailors/Airmen/Airwomen deployed overseas.

You are welcome to cut and paste information and use it to support sending parcels to our service members serving overseas, however, when you do cut and paste please link back to Ocean Sky & Khaki to acknowledge OSK, and so that people can find the blog themselves.

If there are questions one of us will answer if you comment on a post at the blog.

We are anonymous on this blog, the reason is that we don't want to risk anyone's security or the security of personnel serving overseas, or their loved ones here at home.

OSK is delighted to receive feedback from recipients of care packages, and you can give us feedback in the comments section, it emails us to let us know that you've made a comment. We can also be contacted privately if you click on our blogs, I have a clickable email address on my blogger bio. We don't publish this information because it is easy for bots* to automatically search the internet for email addresses and send spam. I hate spam. Spam in a can, spam on my computer - yuk to both!

About the feedback, if you do receive feedback and want to share it on the blog that's fine to put it in the comments, however, please don't use any identifying names, numbers or suchlike, and if you reproduce a thankyou or link to one, please remove the identifying information. Not everyone is as security aware as we'd like!

So, please keep in mind that we must be careful about using names and other identifying features on the blog.

*bots - people write programs to search for @ and other indicators of email addresses and can get massive lists harvested from the net using these programs or "bots".
