All Packages Held by Italian Customs Released All mail packages held by Italian Customs in Rome have been released to military postal officials and were delivered. Discussions with Italian Customs authorities, U.S. Embassy personnel and military representatives are continuing in order to come to a mutual agreement related to customs duties and value added taxes. Updated information will be passed as it becomes available. Potential Delays at Capodichino Main Gate Due to ongoing discussions between contract personnel and their union related to a labor dispute, the potential exists for strikes at the main gate of Capodichino this week. Anticipate possible delays during the morning commute and plan accordingly. In the event of a strike or peaceful protest, do not intervene with striking or demonstrating personnel. Security will communicate with local law enforcement to assist with traffic flow into the gate if required. More information will be communicated via PAO Notes and Facebook.com/NSANaples as it becomes available. Vote in 2014 Visit FVAP.gov and fill out your Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) to register and receive your absentee ballots. You can submit your FPCA via email, fax, or regular mail. For further assistance, please visit the NSA Naples Voting Office at Capodichino, located on the second floor of the Admin I building in room 254. Personnel can also call DSN 626-3888, 081-568-3888 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Personal Post Office Box Numbers Effective April 15, service members will be assigned individual box numbers, continuing to incorporate the nine digit zip code, Zip+4. The new system will expedite address changes, reduce cost to the military postal system, and improve service to military personnel. The change will not effect how mail is currently received; if personnel use a personal box or a mail orderly, they will continue with that method. Individuals will be informed of their new address by mail orderlies before Feb. 1. Please note that some service members will be required to change their shipping addresses for subscriptions and regular mail. All questions may be directed to mail orderlies or the post office.
