United States Casualties of the Vietnam War, 1956-1998
This index consists of two files, the Combat Area Casualities Current File, 6/8/1956-1/21/1998 and the Combat Area Casualties Returned Alive File, 5/1/1962-3/22/1979 to Vietnam War dead, missing and prisoners of war occurring in Cambodia, China, Laos, North Vietnam, South Vietnam, and Thailand. The files were acquired from the National Archives "Access to Archival Databases" (AAD). The records are from Record Group 330 Records of the Office of the Secretary of Defense. The event date is either date of death or declared dead from the current file or date released or returned from the returned alive file. Additional information about this collection may be found on the National Archives website. In August of 2013, the National Archives replaced the ARC – Archival Research Catalog - with the OPA – Online Public Access. ARC identifiers will still work to access the collections in OPA.
