Louisiana's Roll of Honor - War on Terror

Here are the names of Louisiana military members who died in the War on Terror that has been in progress since the first airliner hijackings in the 1960s. This list excludes deaths from actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, which are detailed elsewhere. This list is based on archival, public and private lists that in some case vary in terms of numbers of soldiers, names and dates of loss. Ranks and grades may vary among sources as many soldiers were promoted posthumously. Updates and corrections emailed to John Andrew Prime at jprime@gannett.com or japrime@earthlink.net will be incorporated into the listing as appropriate. Information in this site is public and may not be sold or copyrighted by any third parties. If information from this site is used in other settings credit in the form of a citation to the URL http://www.home.earthlink.net/~japrime/soldiers.htm is requested.
