Military Mail Pack

You can call the US Post Office and request a Military Mail Pack.  The number is 1-800-610-8734.  Press 1 for English, 1 for Priority Mail, and 2 to skip the privacy statement.  You will be transferred to an operator. Ask the operator for a “Military Pack” and Flat Rate Priority boxes. These free supplies will be delivered to you. They will include tape, labels, customs forms, and boxes.

Flat Rate Boxes

All of your mail should go through the US Post Office.  The least expensive way to send packages is called Flat Rate Mail. 

The Post Office has two boxes for Flat Rate Mail. 

O-FRB-1 is 11" x 8.5" x 5.5".  It is great for everything except magazines.

O-FRB-2 is 117/8" x 33/8" x 135/8".  It is great for magazines, but not so good for other things, because it loads from the side.

You can pick these up at the Post Office, or click here to order these boxes online.  You can order single boxes (up to 10) or packs of 25 boxes.  The Post Office will ship them to you for free!
