I've seen a lot of APO addresses from the United Arab Emirates in the last couple of days. Hopefully Ron can hold on to his lead in this category.

You've seen APO, AE. AE isn't United Arab Emirates. AE for postal code means Europe, Asia, and Canadian overseas military address.

What does the "AE" stand for?

Overseas military post offices operated or supported by the Army or Air Force use the city abbreviation APO [Army Post Office / Air (Force) Post Office], while overseas military post offices operated or supported by the Navy, Marine Corps or U.S. Coast Guard use the city abbreviation FPO (Fleet Post Office). Three (3) quasi-State codes have been assigned depending on the (approximate) geographic location of the military mail recipient and also the carrier route to be taken. They are:

* AE (Armed Forces Europe / Canada / Middle East / Africa)
* AP (Armed Forces Pacific)
* AA (Armed Forces Americas)
