Scott,

 

I do not think the USMC casualty cards are online at this time. You can still make a request for one by emailing history.division@usmcu.edu. Are you looking for anyone in particular?

Forgive me if these are no-brainier questions, but are these casualty cards strictly KIA or do they also entail WIA? Also, are Navy corpsmen attached to Marine units requestable through that email as well?

 

(F.T.R. I'm researching a WWII Navy corpsman who was WIA while attached to a Marine unit.)

The USMC casualty card databases contain cards for KIA, DOW, and WIA Marines. I know the Vietnam database has entries for DOD (Died of Disease). The other databases probably have entries on deaths caused by non battle injuries. Only Marines are in these casualty card databases. I hope this information is helpful.
