Casualty Assistance

Mission Statement

Establish procedures and responsibilities for casualty management operations within the South Carolina Army and Air National Guard area of responsibility, clarifying existing regulations, and provides local procedures where necessary. Procedures outlined will be followed under the guidance of SMFC, State Casualty Office (SCO).


Provide casualty management support to South Carolina National Guard Active Duty deaths, M-Day (non duty Status) and retired National Guard military personnel and their family members, who are working and living within the state of South Carolina.


Understanding each Soldier, each casualty, and each family is unique, and various factors contribute to the uniqueness of each case. It is important to understand and accept no casualty mission will be the same as the one before it or any to follow. The SCNG SMFC has developed a set of battle drills and checklists providing the involved casualty mission personnel a framework and basis from which to launch 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 and the toll on all personnel involved executing the mission must be considered at all phases of the process.
