Time is running out to send holiday packages to deployed Soldiers. In fact, Wednesday is the last day to send parcels by the affordable "Space-Available Mail," or SAM, to ensure they reach forward operating bases by Christmas.
The deadline for Parcel Airlift Mail, or PAL, is Dec. 3. For those willing to splurge, Dec. 10 is the deadline for sending packages to most areas by Priority Mail and also for sending letters or cards by First Class Mail.
