Several APOs to close Thursday-Saturday
WüRZBURG, Germany — At least 65 Army Post Offices across Europe will be closed Thursday, Friday or Saturday for organization day activities or the Labor Day weekend, said Bill Hilsher, postal operations director for U.S. Army Europe.
Thursday’s closures affect all APOs in the region served by the 38th Personnel Services Battalion, which includes Würzburg, Giebelstadt, Schweinfurt, Grafenwöhr, Hohenfels and Bamberg.
Friday’s closures affect the region served by the 510th Personnel Services Battalion, which includes Vicenza, Heidelberg, Mannheim, Stuttgart, Garmisch, Ansbach and nearby communities.
Saturday’s closures affect the regions served by the 55th and 90th Personnel Services Battalions, including Wiesbaden, Hanau, Baumholder, Kaiserslautern, Neubrücken and nearby areas.
There may be a ripple effect on the Community Mail Rooms. Mark Altherr, the Würzburg station manager, told customers the CMR would be open Thursday but would not pick up any new mail. Because many communities not listed here also are affected, Hilsher suggested calling the APO to check hours.
