Comment by Beanpole's Mom yesterday

Does anyone know if there has been any change in zip codes for Iwakuni?

Comment by 1~alex2toes(Dianne) on Tuesday

Awesome, thanks pam.

Comment by pam on Tuesday
I copied it and placed it in the discussion under zip codes
Comment by Peg and Dave on Tuesday

I found the list of new zip codes in the Care Packages section. It was dated in May of last year, around page 43 I think.
Comment by faithful Marine momwi on Tuesday

Dianne ; I'm going to check the zip codes out. I was thinking something was up after I got the letter back twice. Then I see other parents getting mail and pkgs. sent back.

Thanks Peg and Dave for checking it out too. 

Comment by Peg and Dave on Tuesday

Dianne-Thanks!  I was in the Chat Room and got more info. All of the references to new zip codes got my attention so did alot of scouting around and found the new zip code for the HQBN.  Guess they continued to deliver for a while to the old one before rejecting them.  I will let you all know if I find anything more.

Comment by 1~alex2toes(Dianne) on Tuesday

If you are getting the zip from the different Unit UIP's, most of them will be wrong. We had an announcement last Spring that all zip codes were changing for Okinawa. I don't know if I can find the discussion or not, it is buried in "Care Packages", I think.

Comment by Peg and Dave on Tuesday

When I called the local recruiter he also told me the Unit# had changed!  Thank you so much Pam for the info on the plus 4.  It won't make it back to him for Easter but at least it should get there!
