How can my spouse or family contact me in the event of an emergency when I am deployed?  
In the event of an emergency, the best way for a spouse or family member to contact the deployed Soldier is to call the local American Red Cross chapter. They have procedures in place to relay emergency messages to deployed Soldiers. If the emergency is serious enough to warrant the Soldier to request emergency leave (e.g., death of an immediate family member), the Soldier will generally need to have the Red Cross message to verify the information prior to his/her leave being approved. The Rear Detachment Commander can assist with this process as well.
