BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan – In order to further clarify the command’s intent to protect the privacy and propriety of our service members who are killed or mortally wounded in action, Regional Command East (RC East) has modified rule 14 of its ground rules to state:
Media will not be prohibited from viewing or filming casualties; however, casualty photographs showing recognizable face, nametag or other identifying feature or item will not be published.
In respect to our family members, names, video, identifiable written/oral descriptions or identifiable photographs of wounded service members will not be released without the service member’s prior written consent. If the service member dies of his wounds, next-of-kin reporting rules then apply.
This change better synchronizes RC East media ground rules with those of our higher headquarters.
