The Dreaded Knock on the Door

By Remy Benoit

   The daughter, the son, the husband...how do you tell the next of kin that their loved one is missing, wounded,a POW, or not coming home alive.

   It used to be a telegram that was the dreaded messenger. Since 1955 it has been a knock on the door.

  
   From the Boston Globe and Allison Barker of the AP Press:'Next-of-kin notifier' officers help military families deal with bad news.
