Military Postal Service Agency

As an extension of the United States Postal Service, the Military Postal Service provides Department of Defense personnel, their family members and other authorized users mail services around the world.

Their customers receive basically the same level of service as though they were at home in the United States. Differences are based on the country in which they are stationed and the type of military operation in which they are involved.

This is accomplished through partnerships with several other agencies. To move military mail the services of the United States Postal Service, US Transportation Command, Military Sealift Command, Air Mobility Command and Military Transportation Command play vital roles.

They move the mail on commercial and military aircraft and commercial sealift vessels, to nearly two thousand military post offices and located in over 85 countries to include Navy and Coast Guard ships.

Here's wishing the men and women of the Military Postal Service Agency, and all our military personnel, a Happy 4th of July!
