How Do I Send a Care Package?
Have you ever asked yourself this question? If you have a loved one who is deployed with the military, the answer is likely yes.
Today, you have two options for sending care packages: the old way, and the Troopster way. The old way involves going to the store, buying the things you think your deployed love one wants, finding a box that fits it all, going to the post office to figure out how to send military mail, and working your way through a maze of customs forms and compliance requirements to ship overseas.

How to fill out Shipping Address for Military
Filling out the shipping address section for your service member can be tricky if this is your first time. We want to help this process to be as easy as possible for you so that you and your troop can feel great about the Troopster experience. All of this is if you have an address from your troop or for a deployed individual. If you don't have an address and want to send a care package to a troop, then checkout our Adopt a Troop page.
Start with the Command
Let's start with what to put in the Address Line. This is the line after you enter the first and last name of your troop. In this box you will be putting the command, ship, or unit that your service member is with or currently deployed to.
What Do I Put for 'City'?
In this section you are just going to enter either: APO, FPO or DPO
Which State Do I Choose?
Scroll to the bottom of the state selection and choose one of the following:
AP = Armed Forces Pacific
AE = Armed Forces Europe
AA = Armed Forces Americas
