How do I address a letter to someone at basic training?
Each basic training location has its own address format, so it’s important to make sure you use the proper mailing address to ensure that your letter gets to your loved one.

Can I fix my letter once I’ve hit “send”?
You can fix the street address and the spelling of a name in your letter but will need to contact us in order to do so. Reach our Customer Happiness team to get started.
Can I send a letter from a different country?
Yes, you can send a Sandboxx Letter internationally. We may need to manually enter your international address into your account so that your recruit can properly write back to you. Please reach out to our Customer Happiness team for assistance with international addresses.
Can I send letters from my computer?
Yes, you can log in to our web application using your existing Sandboxx account credentials to send a Sandboxx Letter from your laptop or desktop. The process is the same as it is on our mobile app.
Can I send letters to deployed service members through Sandboxx?
Yes, 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.
Is Sandboxx only for boot camp?
No, Sandboxx can be used to send mail to any military base in the world. A majority of Sandboxx letters are sent to basic training locations, but you can send a Sandboxx letter anywhere in the world. As long as the letter you are sending has a real address on it, we’ll send it anywhere.
How much does Sandboxx cost?
Sending one letter through Sandboxx costs just $4.50, with even lower costs per letter when you purchase a bundle. For that price, you get a lot more than quickly delivered mail. Through the Sandboxx app, you can write your message and even include a photo for your loved one in training in just about two minutes.
Is the Sandboxx app safe to use?
Can recruits use Sandboxx?
No, your recruit does not need the Sandboxx app before you can send any mail to him or her. You can enter your recipient’s address in Sandboxx and send a letter to them even if the recipient is not listed in the Sandboxx app.
