Figure 2-3.—Example of a letter bomb
Figure 2-2. — Security Container Envelope, SF 700 INTERIOR   SECURITY All  personnel  who  are  not  directly  involved  with the   handling   of   official   mail   must   be   prohibited   entry to   the   office   working   space.   The   only   exceptions   to this  rule  are  the  commanding  officer  (CO),  executive officer  (XO),  and  those  personnel  who  are  members  of an   official   inspecting   party   while   carrying   out assigned   duties.   If   the   office   operates   on   a   24-hour basis,   off-duty   personnel   should   be   excluded.   When   a working  party  is  required  to  handle  mail,  the  members of  the  working  party  may  be  authorized  entry  to  the working   space   while   closed   mailbags   are   being handled.   Supervision   will   always   be   provided   while the   working   party   is   handling   the   mail. MAIL  BOMBS Because   of   an   increase   in   worldwide   terrorist activities,  we  must  not  laugh  at  the  myth  of  letter bombs.   You,   as   the   OMM,   could   very   well   be   in   the position  to  determine  what  to  do  in  a  crisis  situation  to increase   present   awareness   and   also   to   provide guidance   in   identifying   suspected   mail   bombs.   The information   listed   below   should   be   disseminated among   your   personnel.   Figure   2-3   shows   an   example of  a  letter  bomb. removing   contents   from   an   envelope   or   parcel (fig.  2-4). Keep  in  mind  that  a  bomb  can  be  enclosed  in  either a  parcel  or  an  envelope.  There  is  no  set  pattern  of  the outward   appearance   of   the   parcel   or   envelope.   The form   of   a   letter   bomb   is   limited   only   by   the imagination   of   the   sender.   Mail   bombs   will   usually h a v e    u n i q u e    c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s .    s o m e    o f    t h e se characteristics  are  listed  as  follows: Mail   bombs   may   bear   restricted   endorsements such  as  Personal  or  Private.

Mail   bombs   may   have   an   excessive   amount   of postage   stamps   affixed. Letter-type   bombs   may   feel   rigid   or   appear uneven   or   lopsided.
