Korean War

Jume 25, 1950 - July 27, 1953

The following is some information I ran across while doing research.
More than 1, 789,000 Americans served in the Armed Fores in Korea during the 37 months of hostilities. For the U. S., the war began June 25, 1950, and ended 27 July 1953. The maximum troop strength came at the end of the war when the U. S. had 325, 270 troops in Korea. The following are some of the statistics of that war:
Hostile deaths totaled 33, 741.
Army - 27, 731
Marines - 4, 266
Air Force - 1, 258
Navy - 506
Coast Guard - five.
There were 2, 835 non-hostile deaths.
The largest number of casualties, 14, 650 were in the first six months of the war.
The deadliest battle was at the Pusan Peninsula; 3, 603 Americans died
California lost 2, 611 servicemen in the war, followed by Pennsylvania, 2, 401; New York, 2, 373; Missouri, 944.
The number of Americans wounded in action totaled 103,284.
