Navy, Marines and Coast Guard
Inclusion of names in Florida
World War II Casualty List 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 listed represent only those on active duty in the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, and 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 is not included.
This is a state summary taken from casualty lists released by the Navy Department, corrected as to the most recent casualty status and recorded residence of next of kin.
Personnel listed as MISSING are under continuous investigation by the Navy Department, and therefore 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 and 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 then once and many minor wounds were recorded only by Purple Heart awards in the field of action. Complete data on all wounded naval personnel will be available later.
