I have a bunch of books that I found clearing out the basement---mostly mysteries etc. from the 80's and 90's---all of which show a bunch of in the system.  I'd like to send them to military in Iraq/Afganistan---or elsewhere.   Where can I find addresses of people to send them to, or an organization that ships them?  I'm perfecvtly willing to pay the postage myself on them.  Those with knowledge of this, let me know.  Thanks.

Winston, get in touch with Carlos J. - Ironman (KISSIMMEE FL)  he collects credits for books he sends to the troops.  He might be able to give you some address.
