=========================================================
The Center for Electronic Records (U.S.) National Archives and Records
Administration (NARA) announces the on-line availability of state list
extracts from the Korean Conflict Casualty File (KCCF), electronic
records in the Records of the Office of the Secretary of Defense
(Record Group 330).  These are the same lists NARA has made available
for many years in paper form.  The Office of the Secretary of Defense
transferred the KCCF to NARA in 1981; they plan to transfer an
expanded and revised version of the records in FY1999.

The KCCF contains selected descriptive data about U.S. military
personnel who died by hostile means as a result of combat duty in the
Korean Conflict, including personnel declared dead while in a missing or
captured status.  There is one record for each individual, 33,642 in all.
The dates of death range from 1950 to 1957.

Each state list incorporates selected data elements for all deceased
casualties whose state "home of record," as identified by the
serviceman upon last entrance into military service, was that state.  The
state lists are in two formats: alphabetically by last name; or,
alphabetically by place of "home of record."  "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."  In the
KCCF place of "home of record" for Army casualties is by county, while
for Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps casualties, it is by city/town.

The state lists include the following data for each casualty:  name, rank
or grade, branch of service, home of record, date of casualty, and
category of casualty.  The direct URL is:
http://www.nara.gov/nara/electronic/kcas.html.

I hope this information is useful.
