Source of the Names of the Fallen Heroes

The names of fallen service members engraved on the Memorial are taken from the official Department of Defense weekly casualty reports for:

  • Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan)
  • Operation Iraqi Freedom
  • Operation New Dawn (Iraq)

The decision to include a death within one of these casualty reports rests exclusively with the Department of Defense. The caretakers of the Memorial use these lists as the basis for what names to include. Consistent with the stated purpose of the Memorial, the only changes to these lists have been to include only the deaths of uniformed service members from the military and the U.S. Coast Guard. While honored, the names of American service members who have died while on duty but not related to these conflicts are not engraved in this Memorial.
