APPENDIX II POSTAL TERMS, ABBREVIATIONS, AND ACRONYMS You should be aware that most of the publications used by postal clerks have lists of terms, abbreviations, and acronyms defined in an appendix.  The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) and the U.S. Navy (USN) use these abbreviations in postal messages and correspondence on a daily basis.  Along with terms, abbreviations, and acronyms, we also use many United States and international cities, port,  airport,  and  air  carrier  codes  (usually  three-letter  codes)  to  get  the  mail  transported  to  its destination(s).
