What does APO mean or stand for ?
APO is Army post office or also known as Air force post office or simply Military Post office (MPO).These are not physical post offices but are a section of the USPS – United States Postal service that allows civilians to send postage,care packages or gifts to military personnel who are posted overseas.
There is no physical address of a base,but instead a unit number and zip code only that needs to be addressed to where the soldier is posted.This international courier service is highly subsidized so that relatives of defense personnel can keep in touch with their family members.
