Sending Holiday Cards Overseas

If you have a loved one in the military, you will most likely be sending a special holiday card this year to help lift their spirits. If this is the case, it is important to stay up-to-date with the latest US Postal Service guidelines. The USPS recently announced its recommended mailing dates to ensure overseas mail arrives by Christmas to our U.S. military troops serving at APO/FPO addresses.

According to the latest press release, holiday mail for our U.S. troops stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan should be sent by Dec. 4 for arrival by Christmas. Holiday mail going to other military overseas APO/FPO locations should be sent by Dec. 11. If you will be sending a gift, there are special forms that will need to be filled out prior to shipping the item. You can visit the USPS website to download the forms and browse helpful tools for getting your package sent correctly and on time.
