What is the correct way to address service members by rank?

- When sending a letter to a current, or former service member, it can be confusing on how to address a formal salutation, or how to abbreviate the individuals rank since the services differ...

- Oftentimes, the use of the wrong abbreviation - Cpt vs. CAPT, for example - can be off-putting to the intended recipient.

The attached document, from the MOAA National's Council and Chapter Policies and Procedures Guide, can assist with writing to service personnel.
