DEPLOYMENTS: Issues that Arise During Deployments:
A casualty can be one of several things, including KIA (Killed in Action), WIA (Wounded in Action) as well as MIA (Missing in Action) and DUSTWUN (Duty Station Whereabout Unknown). Generally, the casualty number reported by the media after a "breaking news" incident is total
casualties, which includes injuries as well as deaths. Media headlines frequently do not distinguish between the two. This section addresses the casualty notification process for family members as well as offering some tips and advice should you receive notification.
