1,500 of the 82,000 MIA American service members hail from the state of Wisconsin: approximately 1,300 were lost during WWII, over 160 were lost in the Korean War, 26 are missing from the Vietnam War, and one service member is missing as the result of other Cold War-era operations.
As illustrated on the map below, Wisconsin's MIA service members came from every corner within the state's boundaries—rural, suburban, and urban alike.
