Upon receipt of a PCR, HQMC will conduct telephonic notification to NOK (primary and secondary) between the hours of 0500 and 2400 local time.
The Marine's NOK will be provided with a 24 hour toll free number to call for updates. For VSI cases, HQMC will call the NOK twice daily to provide updated information. NOK of SI Marines will be called once a day.
With regards to Marines/Sailors who are not seriously injured (NSI), HQMC will make notification unless it is specifically stated on the PCR that the "SNM has contacted NOK and does not desire further notification" or "SNM does not desire NOK notification". The desires of the Marine/Sailor will be respected.
In the event that a Marine or Sailor is killed in action or potentially dying, a CACO Team will be activated by HQMC.
This team will consist of a Chaplain and a Marine or Sailor of equal or greater rank to the casualty. This team will gather all information about the casualty and the incident and locate the casualties next of kin (NOK) and notify them of the incident and the status of the injured Marine or Sailor.
The CACO Team will be the primary source of information and support for these types of casualties.
