Abstract:

This report provides our analysis of Department of Defense DOD military personnel fatalities during 1988 through 1996 as a result of on-duty, non-aviation accidents. Specifically, we assessed 1 the causes of non-aviation fatalities, 2 the types of activities involved in these fatal accidents, and 3 trends in DOD and service on-duty accidental fatalities. In July 1997, you requested that the DOD Inspector General evaluate all noncombatant deaths involving DOD personnel. Because we had already gathered data for on-duty accidental deaths, we agreed with the Inspector Generals office to report on these accidents while it reported on off-duty accidents that occurred during the same time period. In June 1998, the DOD Inspector General issued its report.
