Write Chelsea Manning
Thank you for supporting WikiLeaks whistle-blower US Army Private Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning! You can write to Pvt. Manning at the following address. While the outside of the envelope must be marked “Bradley Manning,” Pvt. Manning will be happy to accept letters that refer to her with her chosen name Chelsea on the inside. She has also expressed that within the letters, she would prefer people address her as “Ms.” rather than using any military title.
Bradley E Manning
1300 N Warehouse Rd
Ft Leavenworth KS 66027-2304

There are restrictions on what you can send. The military will reject any mail that violates postal regulations or contains obscenity, blackmail, contraband or threats. Additionally:
Pvt. Manning cannot receive any cash, but you can send her a money order or cashier’s check addressed to Bradley Manning. Any funds received at the USDB will be deposited into an account that Chelsea can use to make phone calls, purchase stamps, and purchase other comfort items not provided by the USDB.
You are also permitted to mail unframed, suitable photographs not large than 5 x 7 inches. Any mail that is considered detrimental to security, good order, discipline, or the correctional mission of the USDB will be rejected.
Incoming mail will be returned to the sender if, in the opinion of the confinement facility, 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 (including anything of any material value, including postage stamps or cigarettes).
