The deadline for those wishing to mail holiday care packages to troops overseas is nearing, post office officials said Tuesday.
Sgt. Guadalupe Nicks, assistant postal finance officer on Camp Lejeune, said family and friends planning to mail holiday care packages to troops overseas should do so by Dec. 10 using the Priority Mail option. However, Priority Mail is the most expensive shipping option, Nicks said, so for those hoping to save money on shipping costs, the cheapest option is space-available mail. Those packages should be shipped by Monday, Dec. 3.
