Abstract : This publication provides data on worldwide active duty military personnel casualties. It is intended to provide summary information for the Office of the Secretary of Defense and various other Department of Defense (DoD) and Federal Government offices. This publication is designed to be used as a planning document and is not a record of day-to-day casualty counts. Since there is a lead time for casualty information to be reported by field activities to the military service casualty offices and then to the Office of Secretary of Defense, the data cannot be used for publication or release as current data. Upon republication of this report, all changes, corrections, additions or deletions to prior data will be incorporated. It is imperative that the detailed information and the resulting casualty statistics be treated with the utmost care and sensitivity. Patial contents: Deaths by Cause of Casualty and Military Service; Deaths by Race, Pay Grade, and Military Service; Deaths by Home State of Record and Military Service; Deaths by Pay Grade and Military Service; Deaths by Attained Age and Military Service; Deaths by Country and Military Service.
