According to the US Government Printing Office's (GPO) Style

Manual the summer months are never abbreviated, but always spelled

to avoid confusion.

So you must spell out June and July according the


August, a summer month, can be abbreviated to Aug.

September, again a summer month, can be abbreviated to


May, though not a summer month, is never abbreviated

since it is only three letter long.

These are the GPO style guide lines.

In day to day practice though June is often abbreviated

to Jun. and July is abbreviated to Jul., but

as you can see a typo if one letter can cause confusion as to which

month is meant.
