Modified on Mon, 12 Dec, 2022 at 12:23 PM

Monday Delivery postcards are expressed mailed three times per week (see schedule below) to recruit training. Cards arrive directly at the on-base military post office and are normally distributed within 24 hours (not including weekends). 

*Mail schedules can fluctuate based on training schedules and military holidays. 

Recruit Postcard Delivery Schedule (submit by 12 midnight EST):

  • Submit by Wednesday for a Monday Delivery
  • Submit by Sunday for a Wednesday Delivery
  • Submit by Tuesday for a Friday Delivery

Postcards mailed to a USPS address, post-recruit school, or the fleet normally arrive within 3-5 days.
