Cover sent from Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, through American military post service

My friend Li Ming arranged this cover for me from Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, sent through American military post in South Pole, as you can see on postmark APO AP 96598. The Amundsen–Scott South Pole Station is a United States scientific research station at the South Pole, the southernmost place on the Earth. The station is located on the high plateau of Antarctica at an elevation of 2,835 metres above sea level and is administered by the Division of Polar Programs within the National Science Foundation under the United States Antarctic Program. It is named in honor of Norwegian Roald Amundsen and Englishman Robert F. Scott, who led separate teams that raced to become the first to the South Pole in the early 1900s. Stamp on cover is Christmas Evergreen Wreath, issued on 23.10.2014.

Thank you, Li Ming!
