Below is a brief explanation of the abbreviations and serial numbers.  
Please refer to the NARA ARCHIVES WEB PAGE for a six page detail explanation. (Click Here) 
SERIAL NUMBERS:  Serial numbers are assigned with great care and according to a set of regulations.
Numbers fall into two broad categores:  Simple seven or eight digit numbers (or fewer) for male enlisted 
personnel, and prefixed serial numbers for other personnel. (Note: each digit in a serial number has a 
designated meaning.  See the ARC page on FORWARD for greater explanation. 
TYPE OF CASUALTY:  This is indicated by the symbol at the far right of each column.  An individual who was 
killed in action, whether at the front or by enemy action in the rear areas, or if a prisoner of war, whether
 by air bombardment of his prison camp or by being shot while escaping is designed 'KIA".  persons who were 
wounded or later died are marked "DOW".  --died of wounds.  Those suffered fatal battle INJURIES as opposed to 
WOUNDS, in combat or in combat areas, and died in a line-of-duty status, are designated 'DOI"--DIED OF INJURIES.
  Other line of duty deaths, such as from sickness, homicide, suicide or accidents, outside combat areas 
(including training and maneuver deaths) are list "DNB" - died, non-battle.  Individuals who where determined to 
be dead under Public Law 490 are designated, 'FOD" - finding of death.  Missing persons are marked with the 
single letter "M". 
Only those persons who died in a line-of-duty status are listed herein.  Individuals who were not in line of 
duty at the time of their deaths are not so listed.  Though personnel not in line of duty are not listed,
failure to find these lists the name of persons known to be dead should not be taken as prima-facie evidence 
that such person died not in line of duty.
