Deadline To Send Holiday Gifts To Soldiers Closer Than You May Think

Last updated on Monday, October 27, 2008

(UNDATED) - It may seem early to think about holiday gift giving, but not if you’re sending a package to a soldier overseas.

This year the deadline is November 13 to get packages to military personnel by late December. The U.S. Postal Service has a free "Military Care Kit" which includes the correct sized boxes, forms and address labels.

The kits are available by calling 1-800-610-8734.

The postal service also says packages addressed to "Any Soldier" will not be accepted this year because of security concerns.
