1954 CASUALTIES

 
Although open hostilities ended in July 1953, Korea was still a very dangerous place after the cease fire.  Casualties continued to mount as North Korea violated the truce agreement and our nation's servicemen died of "non-hostile causes" while serving in the line of duty.  American troops also lost their lives in other parts of the world during the Korean War timeframe.  The information in the material on this page of the KWE was gleaned and compiled by Lynnita Brown of the Korean War Educator from Department of Defense records.  Casualty details came from the American Battle Monuments Commission website at www.abmc.gov.  To add information about a 1954-only casualty in Korea, send it to Lynnita Brown.
