I figure I might as well drop any cool links I have here so that this link be a resource to everyone rather than going all over the Orangemane. I'll just put basically the links here.
This could be helpful for people over here or who have been here. Anybody got any good links go ahead put them here.
This is primarily as support to soldiers and are sites that are if you were stuck on a military network you could access. Porn sites are gone. Music download sites or anything with DRM or peer to peer is bad.
Shipping into APO address can be a bugger. This site looks to have some promise. If this thread gets any interest I'll put more links here as well.

ShipitAPO understands the often frustrating obstacles an APO, FPO or State Department Pouch address can cause when you want packages shipped to one.
If you are part of the U.S. Military or U.S. Foreign Affairs Community, we have a plan tailored to your needs. Every online store is now accessible, especially those that say, "We do not ship to APO/FPO" or don't recognize the new 20189 Pouch ZIP Code.
Even if a store does ship to APO or FPO addresses, combining normal (and sometimes free!) UPS, FedEx, or Airborne Express shipping with ShipitAPO can be cheaper than the store's direct APO/FPO shipping, especially when the merchandise is large or heavy. So be sure to compare shipping costs.
If you are a friend or family member of someone with an APO, FPO or Pouch address, we can make getting packages to your loved one as simple as a few mouse clicks. No more missed special occasions.
If you are a Merchant and want your store to be instantly accessible to APO, FPO or Pouch address holders, we have a solution for you too. We provide a transparent interface between your shipper, be it UPS, FedEx, Airborne Express or common carrier, and the U.S. Postal Service. We can meet your APO/FPO shipping requirements, especially if your merchandise is drop shipped.
Under any plan, via ShipItAPO's proprietary methods, getting packages to an APO, FPO or Pouch address is straightforward and efficient. For each package we receive on your behalf and subsequently ship for you, you pay:
We ship all packages up to 108" (length+girth) Priority Mail. Packages over 108" but not exceeding 130" must be sent Parcel Post, as they are considered "oversize" by the U.S. Postal Service. No package can exceed 70 pounds. Priority Mail postage is weight dependent; Parcel Post postage is a flat rate. All mailings to Military States AE and AP, as well as VA, are made in ZIP Code Zone 1; for Military State AA it is Zone 5, Guam is Zone 8. For each package we ship on your behalf, postage is charged at U.S. Postal Service published rates. Some APO/FPO ZIP Codes have further restrictions. Please see your local Postmaster for more details. Packages going to all State Dept. Pouch addresses cannot exceed 40 pounds or 62".
ShipitAPO Handling Fee
Our weight-based handling fee per package.
Insurance Charges (optional)
During registration and any time thereafter, on a per-package-basis, you can tell us how much insurance coverage you want on your packages (example: $65.00, $350.00, up to $5000.00). If coverage is desired, for each package we ship on your behalf, insurance is charged at U.S. Postal Service published rates.
Our three distinct plans are geared to meet specific APO/FPO/Pouch shipping needs. We have a plan for you! Find your plan link and read more.
