 - This page is dedicated to remembering Wisconsin military casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan -
       

    The below list of casualties is a compilation of Wisconsin military service persons and military contractor employees killed in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the "War on Terror." The list includes five military contractor employees. Cool Dadio Media has identified 158 Wisconsin deaths. Please understand this combined list is under construction.  The fatal casualties come from 110 Wisconsin communities.  

    ( If readers know of other military service persons or military contractor employees with Wisconsin connections not on the following comprehensive list of fatal casualties or notice errors, please email Bob Keith at
keithrg13@cooldadiomedia.com )

    The first casualty is listed at the top and subsequent deaths are in descending order. The plan is to link all the names to a brief biography about the person by clicking on their names. An 
alphabetical list of casualties appears at the bottom of this page as well.
