You do NOT have to list every item! they may say you do but we do NOT!! We only list 4 items because there are 4 lines..We have NEVER had a problem doing this they recieve every box weve sent so far!

Hey, I'm a Postmaster and I try to be very helpful...of course it is in a tiny tiny town and I know everyone. I helped my friend repackage her 2 HUGE boxes into 4 APO flat rate boxes. She was really wanting to help these guys out and about crapped when she got the total. I told her I would help her repackage and it saved her about $20. So be on the lookout for 5 boxes from Miller of Lance Creek and I sent one myself

Also, I sorta generalize what I put on the customs. If it is yummy's I put "candy" etc. Mine all get there fine.

I meant my post office here in town..You would think they wouldnt be so rude especially since one of them have family in the Marines..Im sure she was very glad you helped her I know I would be because all the help I get it is when I go to pay they got mad when I asked how to do the customs forms at first...

I didn't take your post wrong, just sayin there are nice Postal people
It is shameful how some people treat the families of our troops and even the soldiers themselves. I saw a very sad movie with Kevin Bacon called Taking Chance. The movie really showed the respect our soldiers deserve.  

Anyways, my hats off to you and your family!

We could have sent candy? Darn it, I didn't put anything ediable because I thought it wasn't allowed. I feel kind of bad now. Everyone deserves something sweet on Christmas.
