Mail Call is a National Postal Museum exhibition organized and circulated by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. Come see this dynamic exhibit on display from May 6 – Aug 6.

Throughout our nation’s history, military personnel have treasured the letters and care packages received from loved ones back home. Just how has this mail reached its destination through the years? What role has it played in the lives of the men and women who serve and their families? Mail Call tells the fascinating story of military mail and communication—from the American Revolution to the current war in Afghanistan.
