Postal Clerk - Military guide to working in a post office
Military Addresses
though the primary first five digits are the same for each geographical area, the last four will be unique. Current addresses for all U.S. Navy mobile units can be found in the SNDL, part 1. FORMS OF ADDRESSES Learning  Objective:  Identify   proper addresses and address placement. Incorrect and incomplete addresses are the most common cause of delay or nondelivery of mail.   All articles presented for mailing must contain a complete return and delivery address (see Module Aof the DMM for specifics). All addresses must be clear, legible, and placed on one side only of each article accepted for mailing.  Senders must place the return address on the upper left corner of the article.  The delivery address is placed on the center of the article.  A clear space must be available on all mail for the stamps or postage meter strips, postmarks, and postal endorsements. See figure 3-4. Correct and complete return addresses on mail are essential  so  correspondents  may  have  the  correct address of the mailer when making replies.   Also, a correct return address is needed when the mail must be returned to the sender.  The SNDL, parts 1 and 2, and annex A to part 1, lists the correct mailing addresses of military activities, ships, and other mobile units. Don’t ever take for granted that everyone attached to your command knows his/her correct address. Make sure that an example is posted where all hands can see it. ACCEPTABLE ADDRESSES Mail addressed to civilian addresses must include in the address the following parts: Name or identification of the intended recipient Street and number, or box number, or general delivery, or rural highway number, if needed ZIPCode (five-digit or ZIP+ 4 where required) NONACCEPTABLE ADDRESSES Articles addressed in the following manner are not acceptable for mailing: Those  having  two  or  more  addresses,  except when  a  dual  address  containing  both  a  street name and Post Office Box number is used.   In this instance the intended delivery address must be placed on the line immediately above the city, state, and ZIP+ 4 code. This is normally the Post Office Box address. The name of more than one post office appears in the return address or in the recipient’s address. Those that bear instructions to return to point of mailing (postmark). ADDRESS PLACEMENT Mailers should follow addressing guidelines that permit  processing  of  letter-size  mail  on  automated optical character readers (OCRs) and bar code sorters (BCSs).  The address, or at a minimum, the city, state, and ZIP Code lines of the address on letter-size mail should be located within an imaginary rectangle (the OCR read area) on the front of the mailpiece formed by the following boundaries: At least 1/2 inch from the left edge At least 1/2 inch from the right edge At  least  5/8  of  an  inch  from  the  bottom  edge (bottom line of rectangle) No more than 2 3/4 inches from the bottom edge (top line of rectangle) Figure 3-8 shows an example of address placement for letter-size mail. The ZIP Code should appear on the last line of both the   address   of   destination   and   return   address, following the city and state. All mailers should use the ZIP +  4  code  whenever  possible.    From  one  to  two character spaces should be left between the last letter of the state name and the first digit of the ZIP Code.  A comma should not be inserted between the state name and the ZIP Code.   Figure 3-9 shows an example of proper ZIP Code placement.   When the state name is abbreviated, the use of a period after the name is not required. SENDER’S INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOLDING MAIL Below the return address the sender may request that mail, other than registered, insured, certified and return receipt for merchandise, be held for not less than 3 days nor more than 30 days.  The sender may request 3-9
