Since Priority Mail supplies are the packaging of choice for families preparing care packages for service members overseas, the Postal Service created a “military care-kit” based on the items most frequently requested by military families. The kit is free, and each box is emblazoned with “America Supports You,” which is sure to comfort those who are away from home.
The kit contains:
- 2 Priority Mail APO/FPO Flat Rate Boxes. 12 in x 12 in x 5-1/2 in
- 2 Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Boxes (top loading). 11 in x 8 1/2 in x 5-1/2 in
- 2 Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Boxes (side loading). 11-7/8 in x 3-3/8 in x 13-5/8 in
- 1 Roll Priority Mail tape.
- 6 Priority Mail address labels.
- 6 Customs Declaration and Dispatch Notes.
- 6 Customs Form Envelopes.
Made in the USA.
