Tips for Mailing Our Military

Will you be sending mail to our troops this holiday season? Here's another helpful tip to make things that much easier. You can find this and an entire list of other support tips and helpful information on the sidebar of our blog under the section titled "Category".

The U.S. Postal Service has introduced a Military Care Kit, or "Mili-kit" to make it easier for military families and friends to send care packages to their loved ones stationed overseas.

Since its inception, the U.S. Postal Service has shipped more than 150,000 kits. Each kit contains two Priority Mail boxes, six Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes, eight Priority Mail labels, one roll of Priority Mail tape and eight customs forms with envelopes.

This kit may be ordered by calling the USPS Expedited Package Supply Center at 1-800-610-8734. There's no charge for the kit. We strongly recommend using the Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes included in the kit which can be shipped to any APO/FPO in the world, regardless of weight, for only $10.95.

Don't forget to include your return address if you'd like troops to have the option of writing back to you.


Help support our troops this holiday season. Participate in one of our many projects or register with eMOM and sign up to correspond with service members one-on-one. Learn more about sending holiday mail to our troops.
