I’m not sure if this is allowed, but I hope it is ATTENTION FELLOW SAILORS & VETERANS IF ANYONE KNOWS Francis A Colon It has been brought to my attention that he has been REPORTED MISSING by his family. According to concerned posts on his Facebook, he has not been to the last 2 drill weekends (he is attached to a greenside reserve unit in Puerto Rico) and he has not been in contact with anyone. Jeremy Bryant Dulin attempted to call his cell phone but it’s going straight to voicemail. I attempted to message and call him via Facebook messenger with the same result. If you know anything or are able to reach him PLEASE contact his family and have him do the same. Local PD has also been contacted. Let’s please do what we can to find our friend and brother
