Postage for card to soldier in Iraq???

My brother-in-law is in the Army and will be "celebrating" his birthday in Iraq on April 6.  I need to send his birthday card, but I'm not sure what kind of postage is needed.  Is it just a regular stamp?  The part of the address where the city, state, and zip code usually go says "APO AE 09361" if that helps.  Thanks in advance ladies for your help!

Re: Postage for card to soldier in Iraq???

  • JUst a regular stamp :)  I send cards to my cousin often - he is in Baghdad.
  • When you've mailed things to Iraq did you include your return address?  The last time my BIL was in Iraq I thought they were told for their families not to include return addresses in order to safeguard their security.  I guess there might be a possibility of a terrorist confiscating mail and targeting people through a return address.  I know the odds of that happening are slim to none, but I just wondered!
  • I've never heard that about the return address thing, but security may have been tighter the first time he was over there. Oh, and if you mail anything bigger than a regular-sized letter, you'll have to fill out a customs form, just an FYI.
  • DH is deployed right now & I do put a return address on there & he says that they just shred or burn the envelopes/boxes when they get them so the address can not be gotten.
