I’d like to share with y’all a great partnership that we have with Sandboxx!!
So what is Sandboxx?
It is a multi-use app for your phone. It is similar to the Instagram format and function but geared towards military members.
Sandboxx is a great way to keep in touch with family and friends while at BMT or when you are deployed. After you go through BMT training or as you go through your deployment you can add other service members that you meet to be able to still keep in contact with one another.
In today’s world more and more folks are “mobile” and with the Sandboxx app it’s a way to connect with folks through social media (like another Facebook or Instagram if you will) but also has a function to allow you to send mail. When you send mail through the program you then can add any pic that’s already on your phone and it prints it and sends it for you. Sandboxx also includes a stamped envelope so it makes it “easier” for them to reply.
I’ve seen other programs that promote writing but for me, Sandboxx seems to be easier to use, it includes a stamped envelope so they can write back and the app is also a way for the Airman and everyone else connected with them to connect with others. Sort of building up a network of support.
And rest assured, everything Sandboxx builds starts with three key components – security, privacy, and OPSEC. Their architecture is more secure than most DOD and banking technologies. They separate themselves from any other social and communications app in this way. Sandboxx uses senior cyber security advisors to supplement their internal engineering team.
You can download the app for free here:
Once you download the app and create an account make sure to friend AFWM! You can also use ‪#‎afwmmail‬ and Sandboxx will give you some free credits to send mail to your loved one!
For those that have not yet left for BMT you can download the app and create your account. Sandboxx can send you a postcard that you fill out once you get to BMT and get your address and then you mail it back to Sandboxx. Once Sandboxx receives it they will then send a message to all your connections and then they’ll be able to send you mail through the app!
Here’s a video that help explain more:
