|Mail military packages early to assure holiday arrival|
The post office has announced mailing deadlines to assure mail and care packages get to military personnel during the holidays.
Although the recommended mailing date for parcel post to overseas military destinations such as Iraq and Afghanistan was Nov. 12, the post office can help get packages on their way by offering a discount on the Priority Mail Flat Rate Box.
Mail sent to overseas military addresses is charged domestic mail prices.
Priority Mail Large Flat Rate Box to APO/FPO addresses is set at a reduced price of $12.50 compared to domestic price of $14.50.
