    Mailing Address/Mail Box

    Advertisements
    So my DB has been in Korea about a month now. How long does it take for them to get their mail box? I asked him about 3 wks ago and he didnt have one yet.

    - When I asked him, he had been there about 2 wks

    We had ours set up for us (2 different OCONUS locations, but not Korea, so it could be different) before we even arrived, by someone already there. The process takes about 5 minutes, assuming it's the same for him as it was for both our locations.

    Thanks!! When I would send him care packages, I would use his Fort Benning address.. but since it's a different duty station, I still dont know the new one..

    My husbands sponsor set his up before he got there, it's really easy though, he should just be able to go to the post office and set it up himself.

    Do they actually need a mailing address? it seems like everything is done electronically now

    If this is the case, I know he'll probably take his sweet ass time doing it

    When my husband was there last I remember it took a couple weeks before he got an address. He didn't have a room or anything right away either which is why. This was for AF though.

    I got ours like 2 months before we got here. It takes about 2 seconds to get it setup.
