Establish and Operate a Military Mail Terminal (MMT)



The Military Mail Terminal Team (MMT) is initially deployed, or will deploy, in support of Unified Land Operations. The MMT is established and has transitioned from theater opening to theater distribution mission. The MMT is supported by a Human Resources Company (HR Co) with one or more Postal Platoons and a Postal Plans and Operations Team. The Postal Plans and Operations Team will augment the MMT operations section. All required postal equipment is available. Communications between higher headquarters, supporting, and supported units are established and operational. Unit and higher headquarters tactical standing operating procedures (TSOPs) as well as FM 1-0, DOD 4525.6-M and AR 600-8-3 are available.  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. Some iterations of this task should be performed in MOPP 4.

Establish the MMT, with other MMTs as the Army component of the Joint MMT, 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.   Maintain total control of all accountable mail IAW DOD 4525.6-M.
