Yes, letyrod24, you will need to fill out a customs form. For those who do not have this USPS site... you can call them and they will send you Military packets of priority boxes, customs forms, tape, etc. All for free. I just ordered 3 sets. DenverNavyMom... I started as BoomMom because my son started the Navy with things that go "boom." After he got married, he/she/they decided that running toward something that might explode was probably not in their best interest. I never changed my name.
Happy Friday, all!
Thank you BoomMom for posting the address information again! BTW - Everytime I read your name BoomMom --- in my head I'm reading BoomBoom! lol
My son said he had to get his number from their post office (of sorts) on the ship. I had it before, but the ship's address changed some. For those of you who don't have it:
Last name, First name, Initial (of sailor)USS Harry S Truman CVN 75Unit 100255 Box _____ (each sailor has a personal box #)FPO AE 09524
My understanding is that this address has to be labeled line for line like above.
They should be able to get their box # while on the ship and get mail during this underway. We shall see. It's a good trial box (small and inexpensive). And yes, 1Bodyprof and B'sNukeMom, maybe the baby will be a week late (not unheard of), or a few days late and the ship a few days early (they came home last time a day early). Thanks for all the kind replies.
I hope you all have a nice Friday and long weekend.
Hi all - Happy Thursday!
I'm in the same boat, so to speak, waiting for my sailor to send me his box#. Hopefully he'll get it sent soon so I can do a practice box. I've spent the last 2 1/2 years sending him boxes while in school but this will by my first "deployment" box.
DenverNavyMom - fingers crossed he gets you his box# soon. Scroll down a little & you'll find the mailing address for the Truman that I posted earlier.
BoomMom - fingers crossed that like 1Bodyprof said, maybe the baby will hold off a bit ;-)
I would love to send something but he never got around to sending me a Box #. I guess if he wanted something from home he would have let me know! lol !
Thanks B'sNukeMoM for your kind words. I felt good today since just yesterday he confirmed his Box # and today I got his first small priority flat rate box out to him. Just contained Bison bars, protein bars, juju coins (gummies), cashews, 2 cookies which may or may not be in crumbs when it arrives, a letter and a small (4x6) photo of our family together. Only $5.75. Figured it would be a good test box. Might send one more in a week for this underway... but just wanted to see if it gets there ok and let him know we are thinking of him. I suggested he ask others who have already been on a deployment what kind of things are useful (and good for bartering) on the ship. I hear bartering is helpful for those who need signatures, etc., and have something to trade/barter for. Interesting, isn't it? Have a great Thursday, all.
Woot, woot, HUMP DAY!
I now have to get his address to get to him on the ship; can you tell that he tells me nothing. He was on a different ship on his last deployment.
Hi all - Happy Wednesday!
Oh BoomMom - sorry that the delays will cause your son to miss the birth :( But it's good to see he has such a positive attitude & how exciting that his new baby boy will be waiting for him after the underway! It gives me chills just thinking about it ;-)
It's good to know that they can get mail while out on an underway. I might try to ship a "practice" box so I know what I'm doing when deployment rolls around lol!
