Mail, Packages & P.O. Box

All Soldiers are eligible to receive a free P.O. Box address at their primary installation. This can be set up during in-processing the Soldier’s final destination installation. APO P.O. Box functions just like a regular US Mailing address with only minor restrictions.

  • Prior to departing the losing installation, Service members and their family should place a mail-hold action with the USPS and/or with unit mailroom.
  • Upon receipt of P.O. Box the Soldier and their family will complete a mail-forward action and/or change of address form with the USPS or unit mail room.
