Out of curiosity, do they ever follow up on the results of the investigations? What sort of non-combat death does a 20 year old normally suffer from?

No, it's typically up to us to follow up. DOD just puts out the release.

Do you ever put up notices from OEF? (would ask about Philippines, HOA, etc., but assume those are CLASS)
