    I think they have a special thing for packages to army people.

    The Red Cross can find ANY soldier. Go to them with the man's name, and any additional info you have, and trust me, it will get to him. Maybe not quickly, but your package will get to him.

    Or so I've been told.

    Could you not just ask him? Or have you fallen out of touch?

    the red cross needs his social security number to find him.

    I'm assuming he's on deployment. Y'know, where he's not going to be logging onto WoW or whichever MMO we're talking about.

    without this guy's full name, and his unit or his social security number, you're probably not going to find him. nobody in the army is going to give that info to you unless you're related.

    I am assuming you want it to be a surprise or something?

    Well either way, his full name isn't enough, I doubt they will give out that kind of info on people who are deployed overseas. Security reasons and all.

    You'd be suprised.

    We were in Iraq and my company commander got in contact with the locals and ordered a private satellite internet connection so he could feed his EQ addiction... and that was before everything was built up to the point it is now.

    Pay and personnel could possibly find him on name alone but there's no way they're giving you that information. Sounds like you're boned.
