The Mission of the Casualty Operations Office

The North Carolina National Guard Casualty Operations Office provides for the care of the Men and Women of the NCARNG and  their Families following the death or serious injury of a Service Member, regardless of duty status. This includes the  immediate need of the Family and the sustained support of Survivors.  Our success is defined by the speed and continuity of care provided to  the Service Member's and Families, as well as the ongoing capability for  the North Carolina National Guard to react in the event of tragedy.

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  NCARNG 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 brother and sisters in arms, to rest. The toll on all  personnel involved supporting the mission must be considered at all  phases of the process.
