 CAMP LEATHERNECK, Aghanistan (4/19/2010 - MCN) — The Marines at the postal warehouse persevere through extreme heat and vicious sand storms to ensure they complete their mission of delivering mail to the Marines and sailors of Regional Command South.

The process starts at the flight line, where a Marine signs and accounts for all the mail that arrives. After the mail is retrieved from the flight line it is then brought back to the warehouse where the Marines sort through truckloads of packages and thousands of letters. To ensure safety of Marines and sailors, some packages are sent through x-ray machines and some are hand inspected for any prohibited items like drugs and alcohol.

The process of receiving mail from the states can take up to 10 days, but there is a quicker alternative called Moto Mail. A family member or friend can setup an account at MotoMail.us and enter a Marine's information and mailing address, type the letter and click send. The letter is then sent to postal Marines at the forward operating base to print and be delivered.

"[Moto Mail] is a quick and easy way for [friends and family] to get messages to the Marines out here," said Lance Cpl. Tiffany Webster, a postal clerk with Headquarters and Service Company, 1st Marine Logistics Group (Forward).

The postal Marines never give up on their mission of ensuring each letter and package gets to the intended recipient.
