Doubt It--I am going through this situation with my son. I can tell you from personal experience that his 'old' unit's rear command has to this day never contacted us inquiring how our son is doing. As it is it took me a week to find out where my son was flown to stateside. I would think that the rear command would have done more to at least keep us up to date on his whereabouts but it took me contacting the Red Cross to finally locate my son, by this time he had been discharged from the hospital--too soon if you ask me, who asks a person who has gone through this if they are okay and accept an affirmative to that statement as fact.
Do not for one minute assume that this woman hasn't run into brick walls. I am sure it is a daily occurance.
*wipes away a tear* Anyone decide to take a look at the soldier? In other words, units are little busy trying to keep our boys alive when they deploy, you know, with stuff like training... ITS NOT THE UNITS' RESPONSIBILITY TO KEEP FAMILIES INFORMED ABOUT THE WHERE ABOUTS OF YOUR LOVED ONES!!!!
That said, it says alot about the soldier in question when the family can't seem to... wait for it... find your loved one.
It's up to the soldier to get the help he or she needs. Nobody says it's easy, but it can be done. Soldiers and family members, mothers included, are NOT ENTITLED like anything else, you have to work for it!
