The staff at 98KUPD have an appreciation for those who serve without the thought of the sacrifice they make in their own personal lives. We continue living our lives knowing that they have our backs, no matter what.

- Full-size wet wipes
- Crew length socks
- Disposable Razors (original packaging, 1-4 packs only please)
- Dental Products including: Full-size dental floss, Full-size toothpaste and a Toothbrush
- Lip Balm
