Larger USPS Flat Rate Box Offers APO/FPO Discount

I have good news for those of us whose physical contact with our deployed soldiers consists of frequenty mailing them Flat Rate boxes. For the first time ever, the US Post Office will be offering a military discount on shipping to APO/FPO addresses when it's new, larger flat rate box becomes available in March. The new flat rate box is larger than the others they have now, measuring 12x12x5.5". It will cost $12.95 to mail or $10.95 if sent to an APO/FPO address.
