Supporting Our Veterans

In support of of U.S. active military and our nation’s veterans, the UPS Store located at 1961 Main Street, Watsonville, is launching ‘Operation: S.W.A.K. (Sealed With A Kiss), which provides free first-class postage (50 cents) for one-ounce cards and letters sent to armed forces members stationed overseas or to veterans in VA hospitals.  
Unlike emails, text messages and other digital communication, a greeting card or handwritten letter provides a soldier with a momento he or she can keep and use for continued inspiration and encouragement.  In recognition of this and to pay tribute to the sacrifices made by our military, the UPS Store created Operation S.W.A.K.
“Right now, there are more than 150,000 U.S. Soldiers deployed overseas.  It’s out honor to show our support for these dedicated men and women by offering complimentary postage for cards and letters addressed to them.  
Government regulations stipulate that all mail must be addressed to a specific U.S. serviceman or woman with an APO/FPO address (or to a veteran residing in a VA Hospital) and must include a valid return address.  To ensure overseas delivery by Valentine’s Day, it is to mail as early as possible, although cards and letters will be accepted through February 14.
