Combat Area Casualties Current File (1957-1989), ordering

The Center for Electronic Records, National Archives, reproduces and distributes copies of the Combat Area Casualties Current File (1957-1989). This file contains records with final data on U.S. military personnel who died as a result of hostilities (killed in action, died from wounds, died while missing, or died while captured) or other causes (died from injury or illness, nonhostile; died from other non-hostile causes; died while missing, non-hostile) in Cambodia, Communist China, Laos, North Vietnam, South Vietnam, or Thailand during the conflict in Southeast Asia.

The file is made available in two formats: as a machine readable dataset (cost $90, plus documenta- tion) or as a hardcopy printout. Printouts for the entire file (58,152 records) cost $48. In addition, the Center for Electronic Records makes available state lists of casualties arranged either by 'home of record' or alphabetically by the cas- ualties last name for $4.50 per list with a minimum order of $6.00.
