Author has written 4 stories for Twilight.
Our names are Deb & Jenny, otherwise known as drotuno & JenRar, and we have a...somewhat unhealthy love of all things Twilight. We have each been writing fanfiction for over 4 years (Jenny is coming up on 5...eek!), and have been friends for a few years now.
In January 2012, Jenny went to Deb with a vague idea for a story, and as Deb made a few suggestions, we realized we could co-write the fic and it would be a lot more fun and a lot more interesting than the original vision for the story. After months of working on it, we finally posted! Jenny wrote the Bella chapters, while the Edward chapters were written by Deb...but the whole story is full of love by both of us. So please do check out Coming Home!
Then, in January of 2013, another story idea was born in Jenny's imagination, and that's how our second fic, In Pursuit, came about. Again, Jenny wrote Bella's POV, while Deb wrote Edward's, but there was a ton of collaboration between the two of us.

Disclaimer: Twilight and its characters belong to the fantastic Stephenie Meyer. The plot and original characters belong to us, and we kinda like that!
We have a huge list of people to thank for Coming Home:
Coreen – for not only the banner, but for always answering Jenny's many questions.
SqueakyZorro – for giving our story the red pen.
Cara, Goober, Angie, & Inkedupmom – for pre-reading and keeping us in line.
To all our readers who anxiously waited the story and then, once it started posting, read, reviewed, and recommended it six ways to Sunday. We love you guys!
We have a lot of people to thank for In Pursuit, too:
Bethany & Mimi – for the beautiful banner.
mskathy – for being a sweetheart of a beta!
Cara, inkedupmom, GooberLou, & Jules Twifanwesomesox – for pre-reading and letting us know what works & doesn't.
We love all our readers and can't wait for you to join the awesome ride!

Throughout the story, we had images to share (of clothes, of belongings, and a few other secret things...), so you can find them all here: tvismypacifier.com/jenny/writing/sarges-girls/
For Coming Home, you can check out our beautiful banner made by Coreen, as well as many other images we used for pic teases & inspiration throughout the story.

Finally, if you're interested in sending a care package to a soldier overseas or here at home, you can check out some of the many resources and information our readers have sent us here: Care Package Links
Finally, the best bet may be, if you live near a base, you can contact that base for deployment services. They can lead you to a general address that you can ship to where your local troops are currently stationed, and then the package can be left open for the squad and the soldiers can pick and choose what they want or need.
Disclaimer: We have no idea how easy or effective any of these are. These are simply the recommendations from our readers. If you choose one and end up sending a letter, care package, coffee, or whatever, we'd love to hear about it! :)
Here are links to the songs Sarge sends Bella (& vice versa) that are mentioned in Coming Home (if the link quit working, search for the song title & artist):
