Not able to connect will anyone phone rings. Military SM trying to return to Albany from overseas and open a PO Box. The phone rang for 5 minutes with no answer. Sent an Army SM to have them open the PO box. It was already paid for, and the signed contract, with her name on it.


You do not answer phone calls and your web site is not helpful. We want to know at what hours of the day mail goes out from Colonie NY. NO WAY to find out! Unacceptqble.
