The new mailing address for PFC Manning is the following:

As previously noted, PFC Manning is eligible to receive mail from anyone who wishes to write to him.

The facility will reject any mail that violates postal regulations or contains obscenity, blackmail, contraband or threats. In addition, the facility has the following restrictions:

a) PFC Bradley Manning cannot receive any cash, checks, or money orders. Due to this additional restriction, our office will ensure that PFC Manning has sufficient funds in his detainee account to purchase items.

c) Incoming mail will be returned to the sender if, in the opinion of the facility, such mail falls into any of the following categories: 1) Contains inflammatory material or advocates escape, violence, disorder or assault; 2) Directly or indirectly threatens the security, safety or order of the facility; 3) Contains coded or otherwise undecipherable language that prevents adequate review of the material; 4) Is received with "Postage Due"; or 5) Contains items of contraband.


  1. Thank you very much for the updated address. I had posted a book and letter to Bradley for his birthday and he must have got it because it was signed for. So I recently posted him the next book in the series, but it was returned as undeliverable because apparently Fort Leavenworth do not forward letters, which I think is very spiteful. Its not like they don't know where he has been moved to. Anyway, thank you for the new address.

  2. Thank you for the new address. Thank you for this blog and keeping us informed of as much as you can. Wishing you many blessings.


  3. Bradly Manning is truly an encouragement to me. He has done something big to stop the first world ripping off the third world. As a person from the third world I am compel to do more to the third world.

    Love to you, David Coombs ~
    I'm giving thanks for your work on behalf of Brad Manning!!!

    (He gets my support via monthly donations, to Courage to Resist, which I believe his legal team receives...)

    Very Happy Thanksgiving to you and to Brad.

  5. Your birthday is approaching so quickly.I hope you get outta there soon,buddy :( no matter what anyone calls you you will always have a place in my heart not as a traitor but a truther

  6. Dear Bradley,

    I don't know you but i would like to thank you for what you did. It took real courage and i know you have paid dearly for it but please know that when i look back on our history, i find it hard that decent people allowed slavery, oppression of women, killing of jews and other vile crimes against other human beings. But there was always a small group of people that spoke out against these great injustices, they did something about it, you are one of those people. You are amazing. Lots of good wishes, Abi from Uganda

  7. Now that Manning has been sentenced, will there be a new writing address to send letters to him? I and a number of writers I know would like to write to him to show our support and continue to remind him that many of us see him as a hero.

    Thank you.
    Michael T. Young
