State Summary of War Casualties [Iowa]
US Navy - 1946

(Transcription Note: This lists Carroll County only.)

Informational Notice:           

Inclusion of names in this State group has been determined solely by the residence of next of kin at the time of notification of the last wartime casualty status. This listing does not necessarily represent the State of birth, legal residence, or official State credit according to service enlistment.

Casualties lined represent only those on active duty in the U. S. Navy, Marine Corps, & Coast Guard, resulting directly from enemy action or from operational activities against the enemy in war zones from December 7, 1941, to the end of the war. Casualties in the United States area or as a result of disease, homicide, or suicide in any location are not included.
This is a State summary taken from casualty lists released by the Navy Department, corrected as to the most recent casualty status & recorded residence of next of kin.
Personnel listed as MISSING are under continuous investigation by the Navy Department, & therefore are subject to momentary status change. Many of these will be officially presumed or determined dead. Some will be found alive. The last official notice to next of kin will take precedence over this list.
The WOUNDED tabulation represents a count by individuals & includes only those whose next of kin were officially notified during the war. It does not reflect the number of wounds inflicted by the enemy since many individuals were wounded more than once & many minor wounds were recorded only by Purple Heart awards in the fields of action. Complete data on all wounded naval personnel will be available later.
