I did a little Google search and it seems that the overwhelming preference by the post office is to use the abbreviations to avoid confusion. I found this little blurb:

“Military Addresses: overseas locations must contain APO or FPO designations along with two character “state” abbreviation of AE, AP or AA ( AE is used for armed forces in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Canada; AP is for the Pacific; and AA is used for the Americas excluding Canada) plus the ZIP (e.g., APO AE 09001-4567)”

We had two FPO addresses on our guest list. I still wrote the addresses out in calligraphy, but left it with the acronyms as is. All arrived safely.
