Military Postal Service – A Piece of Home in Theatre

The Bundeswehr Military Postal Service connects the soldiers deployed abroad with their home country. Since the modest beginnings in Cambodia in 1992 it has become a great logistic challenge: About 1.300.000 letters and parcels are transported every year. The Bundeswehr and the German Postal Service (Deutsche Post AG) jointly manage the Military Postal Service.

The Military Postal Service offices at home and abroad are operated by employees of the Deutsche Post AG. They are also Bundeswehr reservists on active duty and play a significant role in enabling the soldiers in theatre to remain in contact with their families.
