APO huh?

Do you suddenly crave a certain food item while living overseas and wish there were an easy way for it to suddenly appear before your eyes? Ever wonder what APO stands for?  An APO address is an overseas military address APO which stands for Army Post Office.  

What should you consider when shipping to an APO mailing address?  Allow extra time-sometimes delivery will take a little longer than normal.  There might be an extra shipping cost.  Also, remember not all sites will mail to an APO address; here are just a few APO friendly websites:

If have additional questions about APOs visit the US Post Office site http://www.usps.com/supportingourtroops.

Does anyone have any other suggestions to share for APO friendly websites?
