The same policy as set out in the preceding sections will be followed in military accidents. If a media representative desires to take photographs or secure information, he should be referred to the proper military authorities for permission. However, department officers will not bar media representatives from taking photographs or seeking information once they have referred them to the proper military authority. Exception to this will be made only when the department officers have been officially and authoritatively advised by the proper military authorities that a specific violation of federal law is involved in allowing unauthorized persons to examine or photograph classified material or equipment involved in the specific incident.
