    Hey ya'll. My nephew joined the Army and went to Ft. Benning in GA. He graduated basic and then stayed there for jump school. Last I heard he got accepted for some Ranger kind of thing. :dunno:

    Only reason I ask is my sister hasn't had a call from him in over a month. She doesn't know how to get in touch with him or even send him a letter. Is there like some directory I can find him in that would tell us where he's at? Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks. :wavey:

    Best bet is to call the duty officer at FT Benning. Next best bet is institute a Red Cross Emergency Message thru ...Red Cross. There are other ways...but this is the official way. Hope this helps.

    As said above.

    Don't go sending Red Cross messages though every time you don't hear from him. It's rather common.

    Thanks ya'll. He actually called yesterday. He's just a young kid who doesn't think about how much his mom worries about him. He said he's actually decided to take a break before doing the RIPIT program or whatever it is. He's finally going to get a break to come home in a few weeks.

    Thanks again.
