This chart shows just how heavy the toll of World War II was on Louisiana. Nearly 4,000 men and women died.
An abbreviation explanation:
KIA=killed in action
DOW=died of wounds
DOI=died of injuries
DNB=died, nonbattle (sickness, homicide, suicide, accidents)
FOD=finding of death
Breaking that down, 2.36% of the Louisiana men and women who went to war never returned home.
