According to the data from the the United States Department of Defense, the U.S. suffered 33,686 battle deaths, along with 2,830 non-battle deaths during the Korean War and 8,176 missing in action. The number of U.S. deaths was revised down in 2000 because the earlier claim of 50,000 killed included all military deaths throughout the world during the timeframe. The revised figures include only those killed in the war zone.

[The total numbers of casualties suffered by all parties involved in the Korean War may never be known. Each country's self-reported casualties were largely based upon troop movements, unit rosters, battle casualty reports, and medical records.]
