Hi Truman momma's!  Happy RED shirt Friday!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday & an even better weekend ;-)

Hope.  The boxes are FREE from the post office.  You only pay when you mail them.  No, there is no special box for International.  What you will do is fill out a Customs declaration form when you mail it...and that will be attached to the box.  PO also puts "international" type tape on the box.  As you know, Priority boxes have no weight limits...just size limits.

Comment by BoomMom yesterday

I called the number listed for the boxes, etc.  They were very helpful.  I order 3 sets... We will see how far they go.  I would like to send something small for their September cruise... We'll see.

Comment by Hope yesterday

I found this helpful website concerning shipping to military personnel.  http://www.military.com/discounts/how-to-get-free-supplies-to-ship-...

Comment by too tall Joan yesterday
DenverNavymom my sailor wanted laundry pods, boot polish, books, granola bars, band aides, Tylenol, neosporin, granola bars, gum, shampoo. I would always wrap liquids in ziplock baggies so if they opened it wouldn't ruin everything. I made birthday cake & zucchini bread in jars. I know there was lots more cause I sent a box per month. Hope this helps
Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MM2(CVN75) yesterday

When we visited the ship last month I made a copy of this.  It was posted by the mail room....make sure your boxes are addressed properly and don't forget to get the box # from your Sailor!

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MM2(CVN75) yesterday

I'm not sure if there is a weight limit for international.  So far I've only shipped domestic and there is no weight limit on domestic....hopefully someone else who knows will chime in ;-)

Here's a little more info on the AFO/FPO shipping from the USPS website.

Comment by Hope on Wednesday

Dear B'sNuke... thanks for the link and info, but not to be too stupid ... do you get charged by how much they weigh? Do we have to pay international rates?  Thanks ... oh I am cracking myself up at how ignorant of this I am :)  Well the funny looking camel asking we to guess what day it is, definitely cracks me up :)

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MM2(CVN75) on Wednesday

Oh - and Happy Hump Day all!

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MM2(CVN75) on Wednesday

Hope  - the Priority boxes are free & you can order them online.  Take a look at the link I posted.  They will deliver the boxes to your home or you can pick them up at your local post office ;-)
