52 Garrett Co. GIs Carried On War Dead List

War Department Report Does Not Include Casualties In Navy and Marine Corps

Fifty-two Garrett county soldiers are listed among the nation's war dead on the consolidated postwar casualty report issued by the War Department yesterday.  These do not include casualties among Navy and Marine Corps personnel.
The report contains data available on Army personnel who were killed or died or became and remained missing, between the President's declaration of unlimited emergency on May 27, 1941, and January 31, 1946.
The Garrett county list of 52 was increased by at least one yesterday when Pfc. Stanley Holliday, of Grantsville, was declared dead by the War Department.  He had been reported missing in the ETO for more than two years.
On the War Department's list individual soldier names are followed by capital letters indicating the "type of casualty" they belong to.
A soldier 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 designated "KIA".
Soldiers who were wounded and lated died are marked "DOW" - died of wounds.
Those who suffered fatal battle injuries, as opposed to wounds, 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 or accidents, outside combat, including training and maneuver deaths, are listed "DNB" - died non-battle.
Individuals who were determined to be dead under Public Law 490 are designated "FOD" - finding of death.
