It is not too early to begin gathering your mail going to troops and their families stationed overseas. The deadline for the 2009 holiday season is fast approaching. In fact, the United States Postal Service has set Friday, November 13 as the deadline for sending holiday cards and packages to all APO (Air/Army Post Office) or FPO (Fleet Post Office) zip codes.
The USPS sends military mail on commercial airlines, special charter flights and military aircraft, all at domestic mail rates. There are few things more appreciated by our armed forces and their families than thoughtful packages, letters or Christmas cards from home.
Why not order a bunch of personalized patriotic holiday cards and send them to those who would appreciate them most. But don’t be late, ready your holiday mail now and remember those overseas working to protect our freedoms here!
