Pagination or Media Count:
Wounded-in-action WIA, Killed-in-action KIA, and disease nonbattle injury DNBI data were extracted from the records of military operations spanning four decades to project casualty and illness rates for various operational scenarios. The resulting empirically-derived rates of casualties and illnesses were adjusted to reflect differences in terrain, weather, and disease incidence for various operational theaters. Projected rates of casualty incidence were highest in Southwest Asia, followed by East Asia and Europe. Disease rate projections were similar between Southwest Asia and East Asia, with Europe disease rate forecasts approximately half of those in the Asian regions. Casualty and disease rates varied with combatsupport status of troops. Projected rates showed wide variations in the daily incidence of WIA and KIA.
