A very common phrase used throughout the ranks of the United States Army by Non-Commissioned Officers in charge and responsible for a certain amount of personnel (Soldiers). Typically the platoon sergeant of his or her own platoon will use this when reporting that a Soldier is not present for the first formation of the day, the accountability formation. An unaccounted for Soldier could be considered AWOL, injured or even possibly dead.
