    I waited until the first time I heard from DF... that way I knew it was going to get to him as soon as it got there.

    OK because I have talked to him already but he isnt at the " big Place" yet so i should wait till he calls from there instead of where he is?

    I didn't get the address until DB was in the middle east, though not actually in the country he's ultimately in. I knew what date they were planning their movement though and timed it so there was a week between when I sent it and when he arrived. It arrived a couple days before he did and several days before his Brigade's mailroom was set up and he still got it fine. If he got the address once he left, I would say you're pretty safe to send it. If not, wait until he has a day for movement and then send it.

    One of the girls here had her DB's ultimate FOB changed once they got to the middle east, but they had not been issued addresses until AFTER the ultimate FOB was designated. He's in the same Brigade as my DB, but different Battalion. I'm pretty sure I had my DB's address a good 10 days before she did.

    I sent one 2 days after he left, but the address he gave me ended up being wrong,.. so it got sent to the wrong place.. luckily he got it like a month later!

    So I would wait till you talk to him and know for sure the address is the right one.
