    Being stationed overseas during the holidays can be difficult enough without the added stress of holiday shopping for family and friends back home.

    Luckily, the Airmen at the post office are there to relieve some holiday stress.

    “Around this time of the year, our mail volume increases significantly,” said Tavares Harris, 51st Force Support Squadron post master. “On a normal day, we get about one to two mail trucks full to capacity. On Christmas Eve we’re guaranteed to receive three trucks.”

    The Airmen start their days at 5:30 a.m., where they receive trucks filled with packages and other mail. Soon after, they begin the sorting process to ensure everything ends up in the right mail box, ready for the customer to pick up.

    “We actually have extended hours of operation for the holidays,” Harris said. “We’re even open on Sundays. We extended the hours to give our customers a little more time during their weeks to come by and make sure they have extra time to deliver their packages and pick up their mail.”

    The updated holiday hours are currently in effect until January 12, 2020.

    Holiday Hour Schedule

    Finance parcel service center:

    Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

    Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    Mail pickup window:
