About the Records
These are death certificates for United States soldiers killed overseas during World War II and the Korean War whose bodies were sent to Utah for reburial. Even though these certificates were filed long after the date of death, it was necessary by law to obtain a death certificate before burial. They were issued by the Federal Security Agency to be filed at Utah's Bureau of Vital Statistics and they were accompanied by a federal health permit number which allowed shipment and burial in the United States.
