Oh god yes call them. If nothing else she will want to hear him tell her he loves her.

Good for you for being so supportive too!

I would. Then she doesn't have to actually tell him. Saying the words 'I've had a miscarriage' can be painful to some people.

yes call them and try to get him to phone her at the very least...

I am sorry for your sil's loss, and I agree, good for you for being there for her.

Your SIL should have a detatchment contact number. the information can be passed on to them (awful I know) and they will make sure that he gets the information.

I am not sure if they will bring him back or not, very possibly not (I know this sounds terribly harsh, but I'm trying to be realistic) The Armed Forces have very clear rules on what constitutes 'Campasionate grounds' for a return. I don't think that MC is on the list (sorry, I know how horrible this all sounds)
