KUNSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea -- The holidays bring thoughts of decorative tree lights, holiday food and an exchange of gifts among friends and family members. Many of the Service members stationed at Kunsan Air Base are not only geographically separated from their family members, but they are also on the opposite side of the globe.
 
To accommodate Service members during the holiday season, the post office is extending their hours to 9:30am to 5:30pm on Monday – Friday and10am to 2pm on Saturdays from Nov. 23 to Jan. 2. The Post Office will be closed on Nov. 26, Dec. 25, and Jan. 1.

This is part of an effort to ensure parcels are delivered in a timely manner, as incoming and outgoing packages triple during the holiday season. In addition, here are a few guidelines to follow while sending mail over the holiday season.

1. If mailing a package via priority mail that needs to be received by Dec. 25, it needs to be sent out by Dec. 10.
 
2. If mailing a package that needs to be received by Dec. 25 with the regular mailing service, it needs to be sent out by Dec. 3.
 
As accommodations are being made in the post office, the need for volunteers is steadily rising. Groups or individuals who want to volunteer can contact the post office for more information at DSN: 782-5514.
