I know the Marine vet who started it - great guy, he and his team have built this as a start-up from concept to thriving business. They have received recognition from various military groups. One of the cool things about it is the ability to affiliate with groups or units within the app. Great for those who prefer to email but let Sandboxx turn it into a USPS letter in hand, handy for deployments, boot camps, etc., where access to personal comm devices is zero or limited.I live in TX so US Mail takes a week to arrive to WP.
Looks like this app may get it there in a day or two.
Costs more but for time sensitive communication might be a good resource.
Here's an article about the CEO Sam Meek and his team.I'm spreading the word on Facebook parents groups. Love that it was started by a vet.
Hi, bruno, I know several of our former USNA sponsor mids who have used it to send email>USPS paper mail>APO/FPO>recipients' hands on deployed ships. Suits their usual comms methods.My son is in Afghanistan now- does anyone have any experience with using this to send to Deployed Soldiers? It looks good but is it significantly faster than snailmail to the APO?
Thanks- I gave it a try last night- so we'll see if it is worth the $3Hi, bruno, I know several of our former USNA sponsor mids who have used it to send email>USPS paper mail>APO/FPO>recipients' hands on deployed ships. Suits their usual comms methods.
Speed should be the same, allowing for various points of origin to the APO/FPO. It's ideal for those who don't regularly write actual letters with a pen, have stationery and stamps handy, perhaps don't have a printed photo to hand - with this app, they can whip out a letter in the app, add in a pic, and the app converts it.
