I had one of my troops that was in an accident 2 winters ago. Theere was a huge accident out of DC, like 130 cars in the snow. He was like the 50th car in the accident. This is bad enough but in the Army one thing you need to do is keep your leaders informed of your status. I found out he was in this accident 3 days later when the insurance agent called work looking for him and I found out he had been in the accident. I was relieved that he and his wife were alright but PO'd that he had called everyone and their brother telling them about the accident but had failed to call his command and let us know anything about it.
