How to Contact a US Soldier in the Event of an Emergency



If a family emergency arises and a soldier needs to be contacted or is needed at home, contact your local Red Cross Chapter. The Red Cross will contact the soldier’s unit and make the necessary arrangements.

Military Members and Family Emergency Communications Services

American Red Cross communication services keep military personnel in touch with their families following the death or serious illness of a family member or other important events, such as the birth of a child. The Red Cross sends messages quickly, anywhere in the world, including ships at sea, embassies and to isolated military units. The information or verification in a message assists the service member's commanding officer in making a decision regarding emergency leave.

Red Cross chapters are listed in local telephone books and on the American Red Cross Web site at: http://www.redcross.org/where/where.html.
