Holiday Mail - Mail Early

Spc. John Souza, mail clerk, 3rd Infantry Brigade Combat Team, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, sorts his unit’s mail every afternoon for later distribution to his company.

Pvt. Rokeisha Washington helps Staff Sgt. Michael Addesso, both of Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, with sorting through the mail.

For our troops away from home, there is probably nothing that is cherished more than mail from home. We have been told in numerous ways from the troops we write to how important it is. Many of them have become like family to us.

With the holidays coming up, it is important to know the deadlines for mailing to APO/FPO addresses.

APO/FPO AE Zip 093xx - First Class Letters & Priority Mail - December 4

All other APO/FPO Zips - First Class Letters & Priority Mail - December 11

All Parcel Post - November 13

The best shipping rates are still the Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes which come in two sizes.
