Making sure those serving in the nation's armed forces receive their care packages from home in time for the holidays is a priority for friends and family members of military personnel serving around the world and for the U.S. Postal Service.

Dec 10 - Priority Mail and First-Class letters to all other APO/FPO/AA/AE destinations
Dec 17  - Priority Mail Express to all APO/FPO/AA/AE destinations (not available for APO 093)
 
The Postal Service offers a $2 per box discount on its largest flat-rate box for mail destined to APO/FPO/DPO (Air/Army Post Office, Fleet Post Office, Diplomatic Post Office) destinations worldwide. The cost is $14.85 and features the "if it fits, it ships" one- price feature.
 
The Postal Service also offers a free Military Mail Care Kit that can be sent to your home. The kit contains Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes, tape, address labels, and customs forms.
