Before you mail and post the notice, you should hire a process server, or ask someone over 18 and not a party to the lawsuit to attempt personal service. At the least, you should have proof of mailing by certification or registration.
Service members and their dependents may be entitled to a stay of eviction for up to 90 days if the monthly rent is less than $2,400 and the service member's ability to pay rent was materially affected by service in the military.
