USPS Reminds Community to Remember Service Members during Holiday Season

The United States Postal Service (USPS) reminds customers to think of service members during the holiday season. Making sure those serving in the nation’s armed forces receive their presents and care packages in time for the holidays is a priority for friends and family members of military personnel.

The USPS offers a discount on its largest Priority Mail Flat Rate box at $14.85. The price includes a $2 per box discount for military mail being sent to APO/FPO/DPO (Air/Army Post Office, Fleet Post Office, Diplomatic Post Office) destinations worldwide.

A military care kit and care packages are also available. To order a kit, call 800.610.8734. Guidelines for packing, addressing, and shipping items to U.S. troops can be found at

To ensure timely delivery of holiday wishes by Dec. 25 to military APO/FPO/ DPO addresses overseas, check with your local postmaster.
