Casualty Figures by State*

 
The following table of casualty figures by state includes casualty information from World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. The statistics for World War II (including Army Air Forces) and Korea are U.S. Army casualties only. Casualty figures for Vietnam are for all services except the U.S. Coast Guard. After these figures were calculated and recorded, there were instances of recovery of remains or declarations of death that would alter each state's casualty total.
