Yes. Adultery is a crime in the U.S. military, as long as the U.S. soldier knows that the other person is married.

If you don't know his last name, it will be a bit more challenging to report him.

I would either report him to his command (if you know what unit he belongs to); if not, I would report him to the Army's Criminal Investigation Division (CID) at https://www.cid.army.mil/report-a-crime.html.

I would provide either his unit or CID with as much information as you have in your possession.

Like I said, you don't necessarily need to know what unit he belongs to. If you know he is a U.S. soldier, you can report it to CID.

They will investigate it because it is a crime under U.S. military law, not necessarily to help you.

21 Sep 2021

21 Sep 2021
ok then

Impossible to say - depends on how busy they are and how long it takes them to conduct and investigation and for the the command to review the investigation in order to make a decision.
