Recruit Addresses

Mail time is the best time during recruit training and a great way to support your loved one. Here are a few best practices:

  1. Recruits are allowed to receive postcards, letters, and greeting cards. You can include photos and news clippings.

  2. Unless told differently from your recruit, don't send food or hygiene items.

  3. Don't worry about sending too many letters. Recruits are permitted to receive as many letters as you can send.

  4. Keep sending them even if your recruit tells you they are not receiving them. Sometimes the mail can be slow processing through the base mail room. You can use for faster delivery.

Here are the recruit addresses:
