    I worked KG4WH and he has confirmed in both QRZ and LoTW logs, but I noticed looking at the US Counties award list that even though his mailing address is FPO AE 09593 it is not accepted as a US county under Armed Forces, AE.

    A service member receiving mail via an APO and FPO can be anywhere in the world, and those locations which are established posts or bases such as GITMO are usually considered US soil. Are the only military installations that are accepted by QRZ toward the US counties award those that are at posts or bases in the USA?

    On his callsign details tab his state and county are listed as below:

    US State Armed Forces - Europe/Africa/Canada
    US County none

    But GITMO is not in Canada, Europe, or Africa and it would seem that the county should be Armed Forces, AE not NONE since that the proper address for this callsign is

    FPO, AE 09593
    USA
