A complete state-by-state list of the 33,000-plus American battle deaths in the Korean War, maintained by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), can be accessed at www.nara.gov/nara/electronic/korvnsta.html . In addition to the serviceman’s name and hometown, the list gives rank, type of casualty! and date of death or declared death. NARA staff can be consulted for more extensive records. A similar list for the Vietnam War is available at the same site. In addition, the U.S. Army Center of Military History has made available a four-CD set with all its Korean War publications in digital form. The set contains five full-length books, including one about Army medics; shorter monographs, such as Black Soldier/White Army: The 24th Infantry Regiment in Korea; hundreds of pictures and maps; and even printable map posters. The set costs $24.00 and can be ordered from the Superintendent of Documents, P.O. Box 371954, Pittsburgh, PA 15250.
