military care packagesSince Priority Mail® supplies are the packaging of choice for families and friends preparing care packages for service members overseas, the post office has created a “Mili-kit” based on the items most frequently requested by the military. This kit is available for free to military families.

The contents of the kit change from time to time. Right now, each kit contains:

  • 2  large priority mail flat-rate boxes
  • 2 medium priority mail flat-rate boxes
  • 2 medium shirt box priority mail flat-rate boxes
  • 6 priority mail labels
  • 1 roll priority mail tape (yay!)
  • 6 customs forms and envelopes.

Request your FREE Military Care package kit by calling 1-800-610-8734. Select your language (1 is English, 2 is Spanish). Select option 1 (it states it is for Express Mail®, Priority Mail or Global Express Guaranteed® products).

When you reach a live agent, request CAREKIT04, the “Military Kit.  Allow 7-10 days for delivery. You can request up to 4 kits.

You will also be issued a customer ID number to make it easier for you to reorder supplies next time.

YOU CANNOT ORDER THIS KIT ONLINE – This Military kit is only available via the phone number.

Mail sent to APO and FPO addresses overseas require special customs forms. All mail addressed to military post offices overseas is subject to certain conditions or restrictions regarding content, preparation and handling.

The cost to mail the large flat-rate box to APO/FPO is $12.50.

    Hey, for anyone who’s not aware ,you should know that plain packages mailed from a military post office (such as from Okinawa, Korea, etc) with an APO or FPO return address going to another MPO such as an APO or FPO overseas can be shipped FREE as long as you do not put any priority mail labels or packaging on it. Once you do that, you have to pay full shipping price for it.

    Are there ways I can send care packages to soldiers I do not know? If so could I send magazines? Can I send homemade cookies? My family and I are looking for ways to support our soldiers since there is no USO office in our state.

    If you are the girlfriend of the soldier do you still get this kit for free
    Or do you have to be married or a family member to get it free.
