Postal Service Free Military Care Kits

The Postal service has recognized the needs of the famies of our service men and women serving overseas and they have put together a great package called Military Care Kit.

The process is very simple. Call 1-800-610-8734. Press 1 for English, then 1 again for Priority Mail or Global Express Guaranteed Products. You will be asked if you would like to hear the privacy statement. I always say No and then you will be transferred to a customer service representative. You might have to wait a couple of minutes but it's worth the wait.

Once you get a live person just tell them you want to order a military care kit. Note that you can order up to 4 kits at a time and they will be delivered directly to your home.

Each kit contains 6 Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes in 3 different sizes (2 each size), mailing forms, envelopes, and tape. This is all free to you.

The customer service rep will ask for your name, address and for you to verify that you have a service member serving over seas. (father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, relative, friend, etc.). Note that they will NOT ask personal information about the soldier. You will be assigned a Customer I.D. number so when you want to order more boxes, you simple call the number above and give them your I.D. number and they send the kits right out to you.

It's a great service the United States Postal Service provides. If you have a relative getting ready to deploy overseas, save this information. Trust me you'll be wanting to send packages constantly and these kits are great. I have ordered them many times in the past.
