Just a little note..
As a retired employee from the postal service, once upon a time all mail was hand sorted. Not anymore. Machinery is what does it. Incorrect abbreviations can delay a piece of mail for 1 month before it MIGHT go correctly IF the zip code is correct.
I strongly suggest to everyone, check with the mail service for correct abbreviations and zip codes. Telephone books have them. It would be better for Arkansas--- abbreviated as Ark.
Ok lesson is now over.
