Default APO or FPO shipping {military mail}

Shipping to US military forces is done easily through the USPS {post office}
It usually cost the same or less to ship because the Armed Services pay the intermediate transit fees which means you only pay for the services rendered by the USPS.

MPO stands for Military Post Office
MPOs are either APO or FPO
APO stands for Army Post Office {U.S. Army}
FPO stands for Fleet Post Office {
U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marine Corps}

Shipping overseas, to an APO/FPO, requires an easy to fill out customs form that states the contents of the package, weight, and what the cost of the inside item is.

Once the boat is full, then it gets shipped out. Being here in Germany, it takes right around 46 days to get something that is sent parcel post.

Priority is just a little bit more expensive than parcel post, however you get your packages anywhere from 5-10 days. Sometimes maybe a little longer than 10 days...but honestly I've never had something take more than 7 days. Priority is sent via aircraft (usually a C-17 or 767).

Priority should ALWAYS be the method used when shipping something APO or FPO.
