    I can tell you they won't give that information... At least later this year when I am over there I hope they don't give out my information. Too many people that want to take advantage of single spouses. My primary job is USAF and when our guys go over to the sandbox, we take care of them. Thank you for wanting to take of those that are taking care of our nation. :usflag:

    talk to your buddy, I am sure not all the shops/units take care of their guys/girls the way we do. It helps that I have all the equipment and I am the boss. I wasn't trying to discourage in the least bit, do what you can when you can and those that receive it will appreciate it...

    Under the privacy act they will not release the information to you. What you can do possibly is go to the local commacary and post a flyer maybe. You can also take out an ad in the local military paper that is published by the local newspaper. I could not afford to place the ad, as the paper wanted a minimum 6 week commitment. I have tried (flyer)this in Jacksonville, Florida. No responses yet though.

    If you are primarily dealing with the Army, simply go to the post and speak with the AES or AER people. It's been so long I don't exactly remember the correct acronym. Stands for Army Emergency Services or Army Emergency Relief - something like that.
    You'll find this service at the base, usually located in a base telephone directory or at the Staff Duty Officer's location.

    Your local VFW is a good place to recieve this information. Also there are many support groups for the spouses of service people overseas. You might try finding these groups and could probably get names from them.
