If you call (800)610-8734 and select option #1 (express mail, priority mail or global express guaranted products), and ask a customer service agent for CAREKIT04 (or a military kit). You need only give them your name, address and a phone number and they will send you a kit that will arrive within 7-10 days. They will also assign you a customer ID number to expidite the process of ordering additional supplies. This offer incluces ONLY packing materials you will still be required to pay the requisite postage yourself.

The USPS also has a Supporting Our Troops page on their web site with links to guidelines for packing, addressing and shipping items to U.S. Troops.

With the holidays just around the corner and our troops still overseas defending our freedom this is a great way of showing your gratitude and appreciation.
