Delivery Process:

For Camp Pendleton, MCRD Parris Island, MCRD San Diego, MCB Quantico, AFB Lackland and CGTC Cape May, Sandboxx Letters are sent via FedEx directly to the mailroom on base. The base mailroom then distributes the Letters to the basic training units.

*For Fort Jackson, Fort Benning, Fort Sill, and Fort Leonard Wood, Sandboxx Letters are delivered to the Battalion or Brigade mailroom by FedEx, where Army personnel distribute the letters to your soldier’s company. At RTC Great Lakes, Sandboxx Letters are delivered to the Ship by FedEx. Navy personnel at the Ship will then distribute the Letters to your recruit’s division. Fort Knox Letters are overnighted to Basic and Advance Camp only. 

Any Sandboxx Letter sent to a non-basic training addresses, including Army AIT units, will be sent via USPS First Class Mail. If you send a Sandboxx Letter to a recruit/trainee at a basic training unit that has already graduated or is between training cycles, your Letter will be placed on hold until we can verify that the unit will accept your mail before we send it. Your recruit/trainee will receive his/her Sandboxx Letter during unit mail call, which may not occur every day.

Please note that because of base mail room hours, we are only able to deliver Letters to RTC Great Lakes on Monday through Saturday. All mail rooms are closed on Sundays.
