So often I mention various little military perks that we get to enjoy and unfortunately can’t really share with “civilians” but I have come across a nice little resource that anybody can use if they want to send some love to their favorite airman once he’s “across the pond”.

If you call the USPS at 1-800-610-8734, and state that you want mail products or supplies, you will be connected with a live agent and if you ask them for a Military Care Package Kit, they will send you (for FREE!):

2 large priority mail flat-rate boxes (in military spirit let’s call those PMFRBs)
2 medium PMFRBs
2 medium shirt box PMFRBs
6 priority mail labels
1 roll priority mail tape
6 customs forms and envelopes.

That’s one kit. You can request up to four kits at a time.

Allegedly it cost $12.50 to ship a large flat-rate box to APO/FPO addresses, and assumedly slightly less for mediums.

Anyway, if you’re interested in sending something overseas(you can get these free kits and send them to anyone, really) it’s nice to at least not have to pay for the boxes and the shipping.

If you want to send something to Caleb, I will privately give you his address. 🙂

  1. P.S. We can’t say when he’ll be leaving here and arriving there for security reasons, but I will say that if you wanted to order a kit today, by the time you get the kit and mail it, he’ll definitely be there before the box.

  2. Thanks for this info. I have FRBs and I knew you could send them to military addresses. But I didn’t know about the tape! Will be praying for both of you.
