Military Personnel Who Died, Were Missing in Action or Prisoners of War as a Result of the Vietnam Conflict

Research at the National Archives

Records on Military Personnel Who Died, Were Missing in Action or Prisoners of War as a Result of the Vietnam Conflict, created, 1/20/1967 – 12/1998, documenting the period 6/8/1956 – 1/21/1998

This series contains records of U.S. military officers and soldiers who died as a result of either a hostile or nonhostile occurrence or who were missing in action or prisoners of war in the Southeast Asian combat area during the Vietnamese Conflict, including casualties that occurred in Cambodia, China, Laos, North Vietnam, South Vietnam, and Thailand. The records derive from information submitted by each of the military services on Department of Defense Form 1300, Individual Report of Casualty. The database has both final and nonfinal records; a data field in each record distinguishes between them. Final records, also referred to as the “last” records, represent the most current official information about a deceased casualty or about repatriated personnel; nonfinal records, also referred to as “previous” records, are those that precede the final records. Each record includes: the casualty’s name, service number, file reference number, date of birth, date of death or repatriation, date Southeast Asian tour began, record processing date, city and state of home of record, the casualty’s military service branch, country of casualty, type of casualty, military grade and pay grade, military occupation, service component, race, religion, length of service, marital status, sex, citizenship, the reason or cause of casualty, whether the casualty involved an aircraft, the status of the casualty’s body (whether recovered or not), whether the casualty was posthumously promoted, and the South Vietnam province where the casualty occurred, when applicable.

Famine Irish Passenger Record Data File

Research at the National Archives

Records for Passengers Who Arrived at the Port of New York During the Irish Famine, documenting the period 1/12/1846 – 12/31/1851

These materials identify 604,596 persons who arrived in the Port of New York, 1846-1851, and the ships on which they arrived. Approximately 70 percent of the passenger records list Ireland as the native country. The other 32 countries include Canada, Brazil, Saint Croix, Russia, Morocco, the United States and countries throughout Europe. These records include passengers aboard ships with both Irish and non-Irish ports of embarkation for emigration to America. The series consists of four electronic files. The primary file is the Famine Irish Passenger Record File (FIPAS) that includes passenger lists with the personal names involved in this wave of immigration. Three additional files supplement it and serve as electronic code files. They are the Famine Irish Manifest Header File, the Famine Irish Port Code List and the Famine Irish Country Code List. Each of the FIPAS records contains data on a passenger and may include name, age, town of last residence, destination, passenger arrival date, and codes for passenger’s sex, occupation, literacy, native country, transit status, travel compartment, passenger port of embarkation, and the identification number for the ship manifest.

Lists of Casualties from the Korean War (1951-1957) and Vietnam Conflict (1956-)

Research at the National Archives

Lists of Casualties from the Korean War (1951-1957) and Vietnam Conflict (1956-)

The National Archives and Records Administration prepared these state level casualty lists by creating extracts from the military casualty data files in the Records of the Office of the Secretary of Defense (Record Group 330). The lists are based on the “home of record – state” data provided by the serviceman or woman upon last entrance into military service. “Home of record” does not necessarily refer to the place of birth, residence of next of kin, place of longest residence, or other common uses of the term “hometown.”

Korean War State Lists

Data from Records of Military Personnel Who Died as a Result of Hostilities During the Korean War, also known as the Korean Conflict Casualty File

Extracted data includes: name; rank or grade; branch of service; home of record – city, town, or county*; home of record – state; date of casualty; category of casualty

Vietnam Conflict State Lists

Data from the November 1997 version of the Combat Area Casualties Current File (CACCF), which is part of the Records on Military Personnel Who Died, Were Missing in Action or Prisoners of War as a Result of the Vietnam Conflict

Extracted data includes: name; military grade; military service; home of record – city or town; home of record – state; date of death; place of death; date of birth; type of casualty
