Holiday Mailing Deadlines for Soldiers Overseas

October 20, 2010 | Lieutenant Colonel Chris LeCron

Don't forget the deadline for sending troops cards and care packages for the holidays is quickly coming up. 


"Hanukkah, for example, begins Dec. 1 this year, so he said gifts should be in the mail by Oct. 19.

Christmas mailing deadlines include:

Packages going to Iraq, Afghanistan and other places around the world through the U.S. Postal Service should be mailed by Nov. 12."
