Casualty Operations

Core Values and Goals 

Understanding each Soldier, each Casualty, and each Family is unique,  and various factors contribute to the dynamics of each case. The  NCNG Casualty Operations Team has developed a set skills and experience in providing the involved casualty assistance personnel a framework and basis from which to support missions. It is known and an accepted fact; casualty missions carry an emotional factor on the organization and on the individuals. The casualty mission is unlike any other military mission. Understand that you are not alone with the burden of laying your Service Member, Our brothers and sisters in arms, to rest. The toll on all personnel involved supporting the mission must be considered at all phases of the process.

"The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living" – Marcus Tullius Cicero
