ABSTRACT
The article relates the experiences of U.S. Army Major Scott Sanders who was assigned as a casualty-notification officer. Sanders explained the reason why casualty-notification duty is dreaded by soldiers but never neglected to perform with honor. He said that many notifications were made late at night because the Army is concerned that someone other than an Army representative might deliver the news unprofessionally and without accurate information. He also described the reaction of family members upon knowing the death of their loved one.
