If you need to reach your Marine and haven't heard from your Marine yet, you can contact the Deployment Readiness Coordinator (DRC). If your Marine listed you as an authorized recipient of such information then the DRC will have no problem giving you that information.
You also may just have to be patient and wait for your Marine to contact you. When Marines first arrive at their destinations for their deployments they are pretty busy. It may take a few days or even a week or two before they have time to contact you. Be patient.
It is important to remember the importance of OPSEC and not give out your Marine's address through social media or any other outlets where it is not protected. Only those who NEED to know the address should know.
