USPS Releases Holiday Military Mailing Deadlines

The United States Postal Service announces holiday military mailing deadlines for mail sent to service members overseas. The first deadline for the 2012 holiday season is Nov. 13 for sending holiday packages to troops stationed overseas using Parcel Post to all Air/Army Post Office (APO) or Fleet Post Office (FPO) ZIP Codes.

All military mail, regardless of destination, is sent by domestic mail rate – international rates do not apply to military mail delivery.

The USPS also offers Military Care Kits to help military families and friends keep free shipping supplies within reach. Each kit contains six Priority Mail Flat Rate, six customs forms and envelopes, six Priority address labels and one roll of military tape.
