There's an app called "jail mail." I used it once but it took too long for him to get. I think there are a few sites offering stuff like that now.

Mail is weird from PB SHU - in Feb and the first two weeks of March i was getting his whole week of mail delivered to me on one day - now it's back to what it always used to be in that it takes 3-4 days from him writing to be delivered to me. I'm close to LA.

I haven't heard they take the stamps off the envelopes we send to them - I don't think they do as I seem to recall him mentioning that he liked some I'd sent

Has anyone else's mail been really delayed lately? We write everyday so even though I get letters dated a week ago I still usually get something every other day from him. I've had only one card now in over a week though and am just wondering if mail is held up more than usual? In the card he talked about how he writes me every day so he can feel like we are always in each others lives so I know he hasn't stopped writing or anything like that. Thanks

When it comes to photos, just to be safe, I send 10 per envelope, and I always put his CDC# on the back of each one, I also list on the envelope, 10 photos enclosed, so he knows that I did send 10,
