Abbreviations of 52 States in America

Abbreviations of 52 States

We all know there are 52 states in the Blessed United States of American. State abbreviations are commonly used when mailing letters, packages, applications, etc. It's a good thing state abbreviations don't change often like city zip codes. Each states abbreviations will stay the same, this makes it easier to learn them and know them by memory. Many types of abbreviations are taught to people in schools or on the job such as: medical, airlines, military, etc. Not to mention texting abbreviations are very popular since this is the age of new computer technology. But states abbreviations are mostly used than any other abbreviations, due to we all being associated with or living in different states.

I live in California and the abbreviation for this state was Cali, Ca, Calif, or Cal, in the past. But now the abbreviation for California is CA, all states have to be abbreviated with two capital letters in this current time. There are no more three or four letter abbreviations to use for representing states, and no more first letter capital and the second letter lower-case. Both letters definitely has to be capitalized especially when using the United States Post Offices for mailing or shipping things to another state within America.

I believe they have developed two letter codes for each of the countries as well.
