Navy Dads

So, I have a question. My son is attending boot camp now. We just received his form letter in the mail that contains the mailing address we are to use while he is there; which leads to my question.  Everything I have read indicates we are to use the Ship # and Division # when addressing the letter, but the form we received has the ship name listed instead of the Ship number.  To add to the confusion, the envelope has the ship # listed in the return address.  We just want to make sure we are addressing his letters correctly.

Thanks in advance for your replies.
