CASUALTIES FROM IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN CONFLICTS

Three new titles have been added to a Fold3 collection called Casualties from Iraq and Afghanistan Conflicts. Named for three separate military operations, each title includes the names and related personal and service information for over six thousand men and women who died in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001.

While the three record sets include “casualties” in their titles, they only contain records for those killed, not wounded. They include:

Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) Casualties "Operation Enduring Freedom" (OEF) is the operational codename given by the United States government to the War in Afghanistan which began in 2001 and is currently an ongoing conflict.

Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) Casualties "Operation Iraqi Freedom" (OIF) is the operational codename given by the United States government to the conflict in Iraq from 2003-2010.

Operation New Dawn (OND) Casualties "Operation New Dawn" (OND) is the operational codename given by the United States government for U.S. involvement in Iraq after Operation Iraqi Freedom ended on August 31, 2010.

Every casualty links to a Memorial Page with a summary and personal details including full name, branch of service, pay grade and rank, unit, casualty location, date of death, age, residence, and more. In addition to searching for a name, you can also search on other details such as unit number, rank, date of death, or city of residence.
