To any Canadian Armed Forces member

Each month, on the 11th, I send a card to any Canadian Armed Forces member. In January 2015, I sent a card to Haiti.

This is the card I'm sending. It was created by another Calgary Postcrossing member.

Want to do the same? Go to this page and select an address.

I've had some questions about this, so I will try to explain in better detail.

  • These instructions are on how to send mail to a random member of the Canadian Armed Forces. If you wish instructions on how to send mail to a particular person, click here
  • These instructions are for sending a letter or postcard only.
  • You are responsible for postage.
  • The card is mailed to a Canadian address for processing and sorting, you only need to pay Canadian Postage.
  • You do not choose a particular person to receive your card. You choose the adddress.
  • It is your choice of whether or not to include your return address.

You can choose any of the following operational addresses. Just copy the information to address the letter or postcard:
