Does Sandboxx send Letters to APO and FPO addresses?
Yes we do. You can send Sandboxx Letters to overseas military addresses (APO/FPO). Those acronyms stand for Army Post Office and Fleet Post Office. Generally, overseas mail for Army and Air Force personnel go to APOs, and mail for Marine and Navy personnel go to FPOs. However, that is not a hard and fast rule, so use the APO/FPO that you have for your recipient. Learn more about sending letters to APO and FPO addresses.
