Muscatine County Iowa Military Information
Korean Conflict and Viet Nam


Korean Conflict Casualties, Muscatine Co and vicinity
from the National Archives and Records Administration

These items come from a rather confusing listing called the KOREAN CONFLICT CASUALTY FILE, 1950-1957, which was kept by the Secretary of Defense Office.

The NARA notes that the Army listings only show County (thus a listing of Muscatine IA may be anywhere in Muscatine COUNTY) while other branches list by city.  The National Archives information  further notes that listings of men who died while captured or missing reflect the date the military declared the person dead, not the date they became missing or captured.

Because of the "county, city" issue, I may have skipped some people from Wapello, not being certain if they were from the town of Wapello in Louisa County or the County of Wapello.
