How to Locate Soldiers
Know someone in the U.S. Army, but don't know where they are? Here's how you can find them:
Difficulty Level: Easy Time Required: 5 Minutes
- You'll need to know the soldier's full name.
- For Marines with common last names, a social security number may be necessary.
- Requests must be in writing (Phone calls are not accepted).
- Mail requests to: Commander, U.S. Army Enlisted Records
& Evaluation Center, ATTN: Locator, Fort Benjamin Harrison, IN 46249-5301
- If you know what post the soldier is stationed at, you can often get their phone number by calling the "locator" on that Base. Telephone Information can connect you to the base operator.
- The Army cannot help locate former soldiers or retirees
