    Hello,

    Back in about mid-October our DS informed us that the Academy wanted people to start using a little different address for the Mids.

    MIDN First Name Last Name
    1 Wilson Rd
    Annapolis, MD 21412

    This is what was recommended, however we have had some mail returned and other mail has taken a very long time to get to our DS.

    Can anyone confirm this "new" address?

    Go to the source - call the USNA Post Office, the one at 1 Wilson Rd., at 410-293-3787. I think you may still need the PO box, but that's just a WAG.

    10 minutes later... I called the USNA PO. "Do NOT add the 1 Wilson Rd. It's "MIDN W.T. Door, PO Box 123, Annapolis MD 21412."
    Maybe there was an update on the correct address to use for the USNA Delivery Office, the one you send FedEx/UPS items to.

    I mail letters and packages to my MIDN regularly (two packages just this past week, both delivered last Friday), and have not had any delivery issues using the following format:

    MIDN Firstname Lastname
    1 Wilson Road #[MIDN's box number]
    Annapolis, MD 21412

    Thanks for the info!

    So, FedEx/UPS items should still use the 1 Wilson Rd. part?

    Yes. For non-USPS carriers (FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc.) the key is NOT having a "PO Box" or "Box" number. They need a physical street address.

    I suspect that for regular USPS mail, the street address is irrelevant because the zip code and #[MIDN Box Number] suffice.

    We asked our MIDN about this & he just wasn't positive.

    All mail from any carrier (USPS, FedEx, UPS) will now go through the 1 Wilson Road address. Your packages were likely returned because you did not include the P.O. Box number.

    Correct format is:

    MIDN X/C XXXXX
    1 Wilson Road #XXXXX
    Annapolis, MD 21412

    Update..........

    We quit using the 1 Wilson Rd part, and mail has been getting there in a way more timely manner.

    Thanks Everyone for your input!

    The USNA website below goes over their regular MIDN Mailing Address:
    https://www.usna.edu/_files/documents/Parents letter.pdf

    Below is the Mailing Address for Plebe Summer ONLY:

    MIDN 4/C________
    ___ Company, ___ Platoon
    Annapolis, MD 21412

    Once the Plebes complete PS they will receive a regular MIDN Address:


    Hope this helps!

    Plebes are able to receive mail during Plebe Summer.
    e proper format is:
