I just mailed off a package to Iraq (somewhere up north) for one of my guys at work. He is in the Navy reserve and was activated back in August and was sent over to Iraq in January. Anybody know how long it will take him to get the package? I hope he gets it before the weather warms up.

I sent him 3 Under Armor ColdGear long sleeve shirts... he's been complaining about being cold all the time over there and said ihe saw snow for the first time in his life.

Last year it used to take almost a month to get there. I used to send my brother inlaw packages every two weeks. sometimes he would get them out of order. So I would say between 3 and 6 unless something has changed.

I got an order from Amazon.com in exactly 7 days in January. Usually packages take about 2-3 weeks give or take a few days. Depends on the camp you sent it too also. Our camp only has mail runs Mon/Wed/Fri.

About 2 weeks, plus however long it takes to move through the local supply chain.

2-6 weeks is the average, however I have had packages show up in as little as 5 days, and take as long as 16 weeks

I have been sending packages to the 101st AB, based at Camp Striker, and they seem to get there in 2 weeks, no matter how I send them (Priority, Parcel Post, or Book Rate).
