Ranger Students – Looking for Mail

One of the few escapes from the hardships of Ranger School is reading mail from home. Family and friends can provide support during this stressful period by putting a card or letter in the mail every few days. Including a self-addressed, stamped envelope and a few sheets of paper can help ensure you get a response; but understand that time is very limited for the student.

Below are the addresses for the different phases of the course. Mail will be forwarded if it arrives after the class has departed to the next phase, but if it is 4 days from the end of mountain phase, I recommend just addressing it to Florida and it will meet him there (use your judgment considering where you mail from).
