Finding Vietnam War Death records 1956-2006
The US military involvement resulted in 56,220 Vietnam War casualties, according to the U.S. National Archives.
The Vietnam War presents multiple challenges to historians due to official discrepancies with draft numbers, contention over official number of soldiers deployed, and a general lack of transparency from the US government during the war leading to possible misinformation in historical records.
