It is very difficult to pin down exact numbers for U.S. military casualties related to particular conflicts. Reliable information about military operations–which often occur over large areas and periods of time–is widely scattered and/or otherwise hard to obtain. The U.S. military does not even disclose data on its intelligence and special operations missions. The United States may also sometimes declare a war or major conflict over, withdraw combat troops, but maintain a small military presence to deal with residual hostility within the war/conflict zone. Unless otherwise indicated, above statistics represent deaths of U.S. military personnel as a direct result of involvement in the theater/region where the war occurred (as opposed to anywhere worldwide) during the period of the indicated war/conflict.
