Hi to you all :)
How long roughly does it take for a care package to reach your family member ?? I mailed a package on the 11th March and he hasn't received it as of yet ..
Also does anyone know what dates do the packages ship out from the FPO in Virginia ??
Thanks .. my son had a fall and I'm trying to get some extra things to him <you know how we as Moms do it when out kids are not well>
Thanks in advance
Hello, I am in the shipping business. I recommend the USPS flat rate boxes. They are in sizes small, medium and large. You can pack a lot of stuff in those boxes. I sent one on the 6th of March and it arrived on the 14th to FPO. My son was out on training so it took a while for him to actually get it. It was a box full of Girl Scout cookies. I have sent another box of cookies plus a box of sunscreen. Do you have any other suggestions of what to send? I have painted a yellow ribbon for the USS Carter Hall on the front of my building.
I mailed it out on the 11th of March via Priority USPS and it was at the FPO on the 14th of March .. My son is deployed but Im wondering when he will get it ..
I sent all types of goodies .. Protein Bars are good plus I sent all his favorite snacks, undershirts etc .. I just wish it would hurry and get to him to lift his spirits as he got hurt and it would really bring a smile to his face.
I am going to ship out another box tomorrow so he will get them at least once a month ...
Getting the ribbon done was awesome:)
