    OK, Kinda dumb question. Now that our PCs have their mail box numbers what is the proper mailing address for them?

    first name last name, 2014
    US Merchant Marine Academy
    Box#
    Kings Point, NY

    Is that right?

    thanks!

    Plebe Candidate First Name Middle Name Last Name
    United States Merchant Marine Academy
    300 Steamboat Road Box 123
    Kings Point, New York 11024

    And just when you get used to this one, it will change again to Plebe First Middle Last after Acceptance Day.

    Keep writing. They love to receive real mail!

    Just make sure it is BOX #, NOT P.O. Box #.

    Thank you for the information. I am just wondering though a couple of things and if you could answer them great. Got my p/c's box number but does there need to be 5th Company someone where on the mailing address or does just the box number suffice. Also, I have ordered a lot of supplies that are going to be delivered tomorrow and throughout the week for my son but he has moved. Will they make sure he gets them at the new address he's at? I wish I would have known sooner but oh well.

    address

    The company number doesn't really matter on the address. Once a plebe candidate has their box number, it will remain the same their entire time at KP regardless of room and company changes. Any supplies that have been sent will find their way to your DS.

    Box #'s?

    How do we find out our DD/DS's box number? I didn't think to ask yesterday- too much to say in too short of time-:wink: However, I do need to send something out, I am assuming it will still find it's way to him. Thank you....

    Remember the school is small, and likely there is only one "Jane Doe" there so if you get their name on it the mail people will get it to the proper person.

    The mailing address there is fairly simple, if you get your son/daughter's name, USMMA and 11024 on there it will make it.

    To make things easy and "really" ensure it gets there simply use the following

    First Last
    Box #:
    USMMA
    300 Steamboat Rd
    Kings Point, NY 11024

    If you accidently write 1 Steamboat Rd like I did for years it still gets there. If you leave off the box # the mail people will look it up and get it in the box (they'll be mad, but they'll do it). If you entirely leave off Steamboat Rd it will likely still get there.

    The town of Kings Point is tiny so not hard for the postal service to figure out where in KP it goes if you write USMMA. After that it's up to the guys in the basement to get it to the right person.

    Yikes! for the last year we've been sending things to (and I've given out his address as): [appropriate "rank"] First, MI, Last, # of Co, Box #, 300 Steamboat Rd, etc., etc.

    No "USMMA" in sight. (Don't know how that happened.) Everything has gotten there!

    Yep, like I was saying, don't get too stressed about how you address things, as long as you get some form of the address on there it gets there. :biggrin:
