Conduct Postal Platoon Operations



The Military Mail Terminal Team (MMT) is deployed to support theater opening operations. A Human Resources Company (HR Co) with four postal platoons is deployed to augment the MMT. All required postal equipment is available. Communications between higher headquarters, supporting, and supported units are established and operational. Unit and higher headquarters tactical standing operation procedures (TSOPs) as well as all regulatory guidance are present. Terrorist and other hostile force sympathizers are operating in the area. Threat capabilities include information gathering, hostile force sympathizers, and terrorist activities in a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and high yield Explosives (CBRNE) environment.

Establish the MMT, with other MMTs as the Army component of the Joint MMT, JMMT, at the inter-theater Aerial Port of Debarkation (APOD). Prepare to receive mail for units and Army Post Offices (APOs) within the Area of Operations (AO) and dispatch mail from the AO theater elements prior to the beginning of mail flow. Upon establishment of MMT, dispatch incoming mail to units and APOs within 24 hours of receipt or as allowed by the tactical situation, and dispatch outgoing mail in accordance with Military Postal Services Agency (MPSA) and theater commander guidance as transportation assets permit.
