Sailors sort mail aboard the hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) after a replenishment at sea. Comfort is working with health and government partners in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean to provide care on the ship and at land-based medical sites, helping to relieve pressure on national medical systems strained by an increase in Venezuelan migrants.

As holidays are fast approaching, so are the deadlines — first is Nov. 27. Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) Postal Operations has recommendations to follow to make sure packages arrive in time.

“Most ashore Navy Post Offices will extend package pick up and customer service hours to support the holiday rush, so mail or order early to ensure packages arrive in time for the holidays,” said Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) Postal Operations Manager Dale Pinchart.

To be sure packages and letters arrive by Dec. 25, Pinchart recommends sending items no later than these mailing dates:
