How would I address a military officer and his wife in public and on a letter?
I'm inviting the parents of a friend to my wedding, and her father is a Lieutenant General and her mother is a civilian. I have no idea how to address them at the wedding or on the invitations as I'm not military... help please?

Example: (mailing address ) Lieutenant General & Mrs. John Doe or LTG. & Mrs. John Doe !
When speaking to them, adress them as Sir & Maam, unless they say please call us "John & Jane " !
Letter: Dear LTG & Mrs John Doe,Source(s): Served 30 years - Army

Chuy's correct, if he's an Army General. For Air Force, substitute "Lt Gen" for "LTG", and for a Marine general, substitute "LtGen" for the abbreviation.
