    It's the end of the 5th week. My fiancee is in company K191. I had thought I'd get a call today at the latest... when do the calls generally come, telling us where they are beong stationed? I'm going crazy over here, with apprehension as to where he's stationed... I really need to know where so I can actually make some plans.... what day do they call? Morning or afternoon? Can they call more than one person? I'm terrified to miss this call...

    Usually Saturday or Sunday. It's not going to be a specific time. Also they put their picks in during week 5 I'm not sure they get them back right away. I remember waiting some days for sure.

    When I called no one picked up, and then on Sunday I went to church and used their phone to call. This was 5 years ago. Could be different now

    Casks can come anywhere between Thursday and Tuesday. They can be early in the day until later, early evening. They will get only one call. If there is no answer they'll be given a second chance but only one call.

    Yeah, I remember my wife telling me this was a big concern. Just keep your phone on you. He'll call when they let him and worst case, when(if) they get their on-base liberty, he'll have access to a phone most of the day.

    Okay thank you. I hope I'm able to answer. I live in the country and lose service a lot. I just hope the call comes with good timing. Thanks

    It was a holiday weekend (short work week) so I wouldn't be surprised if they don't have their units yet.

    I finally got the call. He was stationed in Eufaula, Alabama. I'm going to college in the Florida panhandle. Not far from home, I'm so happy!

    I knew a guy stationed there. It's the middle of nowhere Alabama.

    Yep, I know it. Considering we currently live in the middle of nowhere Florida, it's not much of a culture shock. Haha

    I was stationed there for almost a year. Then I moved to Miami, a suburb of Cuba.
