You can do the flat rate shipping through the USPS.  You can use this link to find out info about shipping to military personnel.

If you get the flat rate boxes then it's not bad at all, I can't remember right off the top of my head but I remember last year I sent something to a friend and it wasn't too shabby. The boxes are a bit small though... you really have to know how to pack them.

(looked it up, $12.50 or $14.50 for the largest box... I don't know what APO/FPO destinations mean)

get a flat rate box, than the weight of it won't matter, as long as it all fits in the box (which shoe box size it should) it'll cost the same. i sent a laptop in a flat rate box w/insurance i want to say it cost me around $25 (and like i said that was w/the added insurance)
