How much trust do you put in what the FRG tells you? DH has always told me to take it with a grain of salt, but I thought that might be from having a so-so one last deployment (we were engaged so I didn't deal with them, MIL was the contact).
FRG called last night. They said the commander had called and asked them to pass along the message that the soldiers had been given a mission and knew where they were going (Long story short, the state pushed too hard for the deployment and they have no mission, so no idea where they are going). They asked if my soldier had already contacted me. I told them he's called earlier but told me nothing specific. (She said that they'd just got the call, so don't think he wasn't telling you things. I told her I figured when he doesn't give specifics its because I can't. She was surprised I knew that:/). Anyway, she proceeded to tell me that they were being split into 3 places, but that each soldier would have to tell their family specifically because they didn't have a list (red flag?). I called DH. He was LIVID (and apperently so was every other person in the unit). They have NO CLUE where they are going. A bunch of stuff is happening, but no one knows anything. He proceeded to cuss out the FRG and tell me to never listen to a thing they say again.
So, is he right? Should I take their words with a grain of salt? Or maybe they'll learn and get things together? I guess I'm also worried if they are giving info out before the soldiers know, are they possibly risking OP-SEC?
ETA: I'm not trying to question DH, I'm just wondering if this is specific to the units he's been with or a universal problem.
