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.
