forces.  Additional information concerning use of the Military Postal Service is found in the Department of Defense  Postal  Manual,  DOD  4525.6-M,  Volume  I, appendix A. AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL Control of personnel who use a post office aboard a ship is much easier than at a post office located on a naval activity in a foreign country.  This is because of the limited access that personnel have to ships.  So if you are assigned to a post office that is located in a foreign  country,  you  should  be  particularly  alert  for unauthorized users.  Violations of any agreement with the  host  country  could  place  the  Military  Postal Service in that country in jeopardy. SERVICE FOR RELATED ORGANIZATIONS At naval activities overseas, there may be several organizations present that are not part of the DOD, but do  support  a  DOD  mission.     The  U.S.  citizen employees   of   these   organizations   and   their accompanying  dependents  are  authorized  to  use  the Military  Postal  Service  outside  of  the  Continental United  States  (CONUS)  where  the  USPS  does  not operate. Some of the organizations that may be located in your area are as follows:    DOD operated dependent schools    DOD non-appropriated fund activities    The American Red Cross    United Service Organizations, Inc. (USO)    Overseas  military  banking  facilities  and  credit unions    Masters and civilian crews of the Military Sealift Command  (MSC)  ships  and  merchant  ships operating for the account of the MSC Other  categories  of  personnel  may  be  entitled  to use  military  post  offices  under  certain  conditions  at overseas  locations,  so  you  should  check  your  local regulations for entitlement. UNAUTHORIZED PERSONNEL Organizations and personnel authorized to use the MPS   may   not   mail   articles   for   persons   and organizations  not  authorized  postal  services. The following  organizations  and  individuals  are  among those that will NOT be provided postal services:    Concessionaires  of  non-appropriated  fund activities.    Political  organizations.   This  does  not  prohibit direct mailing of political campaign material to individuals authorized to use the MPS, provided it  is  not  material  for  distribution  on  or  off  the military installation.    Non-DOD tuition-fee schools.    Non-appropriated  fund  activities  of  non-DOD agencies, such as employee cooperatives.    Non-DOD contractors.    Individuals, whether otherwise entitled to such service  or  not,  for  business  or  commercial purposes. If  postal  privileges  are  to  be  withdrawn  from previous  authorized  organizations  and  individuals,  a 90-day advance notice of withdrawal of service should normally be given. EMERGENCY OR SPECIAL AUTHORIZATIONS In the event of a national emergency, hostilities, or occupations,  U.S.  citizen  personnel,  not  otherwise allowed the use of the MPS under any other provisions, may be authorized use of the facilities for letter class mail  including  stamped  cards,  post  cards,  and  voice recordings. Such  persons  must  be  in  overseas  areas  where international   postal   service   is   not   available   or adequate.  If adequate international postal service later becomes   available,   use   of   the   MPS   should   be withdrawn. When, in time of peace, if it appears that persons or organizations  should  be  authorized  to  use  the  MPS, requests for this authority should be submitted to the MPSA.  Such requests originate from the commanding officer,   and   should   include   the   comments   and recommendations   of   the   responsible   theater   or overseas  area  commander,  together  with  a  statement concerning  eligibility  under  any  existing  agreement between the United States and the host country. The Overseas Citizens Voting Rights Act of 1975 was  amended  by  Public  Law  95-593  to  allow  U.S. citizens overseas access to military post offices for the purpose of mailing balloting material.  This service is for those U.S. citizens overseas who are not normally authorized  Military  Postal  Service  privileges.
