Description: Photograph used for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "There's no easy way to tell a mother her son has been killed in a war, a wife that her husband is a traffic victim, or a husband that his wife has incurable cancer. Ministers, police, "causalty assistance" officers in the military and hospital chaplains all agree on that. There's No Formula Neither is there a one-two-three formula for carrying out such duty in the least offensive way. "There are no two cases handled the same way," says Gene wells, undersheriff and a veteran of 36 years in law enforcement. "It depends on the type of message, the kind of trouble you're talking about and what you walk into when you get there." Maj. Edward E. Dauster, inspector-instructor for Marine Corps reserve units in Oklahoma, said he carried as many as six next-of-kin messages per month to Oklahomans two years ago."
