Is There a Size Restriction on the Box I Can Send to My Soldier?

We always ask you to check with the post office. Sometimes, it can be cheaper to send in a large box up to 70lbs depending on where you live. Recently, we had a 47 lb box returned to us. So here is some advice:

Some zip codes have tighter restrictions on size than the standard allowed to an APO. We recommend checking them before you send a package even if it is an address you have sent to before. The USPS publishes updates on their website every 2 weeks, but you can check the restrictions for your Soldier’s zip code here:

This is good advice as we do not want you paying $70 to ship it and have it returned to you. Here is what our box looked like upon return and along with the note on size restriction.
