A Community Mail Room, or better known as a CMR address, gives authorized personnel a US address with the same postage and charges as mailing within the US (no internaitonal mailing fees.) To open a CMR receptacle (mailbox) requires a copy of orders and a DoD ID card. A CMR box can be assigned either on the installation you work or live.
Sponsors can establish a CMR mailbox on behalf of their incoming personnel.
The Army Post Office (APO) and Community Mail Room (CMR) are two separate services. APOs are for sending mail and CMRs are for receiving mail. On Patch, Kelley, and Robinson these services are located in the same building. On Panzer, they are not.
- All personnel must show a DoD ID card to send or receive mail.
- All USAG Stuttgart installations have blue USPS mailboxes for regular, stamped, letter mail.
- A US Forever Stamp can be used to mail an item to a German address, if you use your CMR address as the return address.
