Why does it take so long for a care package to reach Afghanistan?

My husband is serving in Afghanistan. The first package I sent took 2.5 months to arrive. Another package was sent before Thanksgiving and he hasn't received it. I sent one 2 weeks ago and there is no status on that. He said other men receive packages all the time. According to the USPS, there is no way to track mail going to a FOB. Any ideas?

Well on Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops, it usually takes about 20 seconds.

Did he say if there were any errors in your addressing?

The route is from USPS to the APO in NY, to Germany, to some place in the Middle East like Qutar and on to the addressee. Any address error would have to get checked out. Other than that I doubt you are a list of folks to mess with. Some clown in his unit could be issue too. Don't know if they have a dedicated mail person though.....but that is also possible.

They are right that it cannot be tracked

You are probably shipping Parcel Post which goes by Ship...

You have to get the "Priority Mail"..."America Supports You" Flat Rate Boxes (FRB's)
Cheapest and Fastest way to ship to the Warriors...$12.95 all you can pack in it...
The boxes are FREE at the Post Office...

The USPS can only track to the FPO's/APO/s which are located in the USA...
and then only if there is "Delivery Confirmation On the Package"...
It is then turned over top the Military to deliver...
