Benefits Available For US Merchant Mariners


That’s what I’d take to higher ups at USAA… Your audience that you can reach could affect USAA… a lot of negative reviews cause make them fix things


My mariner/lawyer friend told me that Merchant Mariners, while on a ship, can have free USPS postage on letters they mail, something about writing the name of your ship instead of a stamp. Should be able to drop it into any mailbox that way…

Although I think the Postal Service active knowledge of this perk is nil, and you’d be far better off just paying for the damn stamp or otherwise waste your time convincing the post clerk, or risk loosing your letter in the blue mail boxes.
