Postal Personnel, Continued
onward  dispatch  of  mail.   This  is  in  addition  to  the usual mail-handling and postal finance functions. FLEET MAIL CENTERS A  fleet  mail  center  (FMC)  receives,  distributes, consolidates,  transfers,  and  dispatches  military  mail for transportation to, from, and within overseas areas, commands, and ships. In addition to mail-handling and routing services, FMCs provide port visit instructions, postal training, and inspection services for fleet units and other post offices locally served as required by higher authority. The lack of an official designation as an FMC does not  prevent  shore-based  or  fleet  mobile  post  offices from  performing  FMC  functions  when  warranted. However,  all  shore-based  Navy  post  offices  must provide assistance to fleet units visiting or operating in geographic areas for which they are responsible. An  FMC  is  under  the  military  command  of  the commanding  officer  of  the  activity  at  which  it  is located.  FMCs and MPOs perform functions assigned by  the  respective  Fleet  Commander  in  Chiefs (FLTCINCs).    FMCs  or  Navy  post  offices  (NPOs) designated as mail control activities (MCAs) must also assume  those  responsibilities  as  outlined  in  the Department  of  Defense  Postal  Manual,  DOD 4525.6-M, Volume I, chapter 10. The  FMCs  are  administered  by  an  officer- in-charge (OIC).   This officer maintains liaison with foreign  officials  concerned  with  movement  of  mail, with  representatives  of  commercial  transportation carriers,   and   with   local   U.S.   military   postal representatives.  The officer-in-charge also assists the FLTCINC in the administration and operation of the MPS. A Senior or Master Chief Postal Clerk is usually assigned and may fill the officer-in-charge billet.  The leading chief is directly in charge of the sections that compose the FMC. The FMCs are usually divided into several sections that include the following:    Mail-handling section    Registry section    Postal Supply    Administrative section    Locator    Claims & Inquiries    Finance services section AERIAL MAIL TERMINALS Aerial  mail  terminals  (AMTs)  are  overseas military  mail  facilities  responsible  for  the  receipt, distribution, transfer, and dispatch of military mail by air  between  overseas  areas  or  to  or  from  the  United States. Q1-6.     The JMPA’s act as the single point of contact for the MPSA with what activity? Q1-7. The lack of an official designation as a fleet mail  center  does  not  prevent  a  shore-based post  office  overseas  from  performing  FMC functions when warranted.  (True/False) Now turn to appendix 1 to check your answers. POSTAL PERSONNEL Learning Objective: Reognize  the  role  of the   Navy   postal   clerk;   identify   the qualifications   and   positions   of   MPS personnel. The mission and functions of the Military Postal Service  would  be  impossible  to  achieve  without qualified  postal  personnel. Navy  postal  personnel responsibilities  are  many  and  varied.   You  will  find these  responsibilities  outlined  in  the  Department  of Defense and Department of the Navy regulations and instructions.   Also, USPS publications list additional responsibilities, guidelines, and operating procedures. In  addition  to  postal  duties,  postal  personnel  are charged with military duties and responsibilities.  All too often we forget that we are Sailors first.  This does not  mean  that  our  professional  duties  should  take  a backseat to our military duties; however, they should be performed together in a professional manner.  Some of  the  general  responsibilities  and  titles  of  postal personnel you will be closely working with are listed in the following paragraphs. THE POSTAL CLERK RATING AND RESPONSIBILITIES Postal  Clerks  operate  post  offices  aboard  Navy ships, and at overseas naval activities.  The Navy also 1-7
