I admit that I am one of those people who loses track of time. I don’t do it on purpose I just at times don’t realize how fast a month can fly by. When my husband has been deployed I admit I have at times almost missed the deadline in mailing my Christmas care packages off to him. Fortunately for you I blog about this stuff so hopefully I am giving you a head start.
The Postal service not only released it’s holiday shipping schedule but that it will be allowing families to ship worldwide to service members in priority boxes for a discounted flat rate of $12.95.
In Their Words
” For online ordering of the large Priority Mail APO/FPO Flat Rate Boxes featuring the “America Supports You” logo and information about mailing letters and packages to military destinations, visit Priority Mail APO/FPO Boxes under “Order Free Boxes.”
Ordering Free Mail Kits from the USPS
In their Words: “The Postal Service also offers free military care kits, designed specifically for military families sending packages overseas. Each kit includes two “America Supports You” large Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes, four medium-sized Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes, six Priority Mail labels, one roll of Priority Mail tape and six customs forms with envelopes.
