Individual Deceased Personnel File gives wartime death info

TERRE HAUTE — If you have a family member killed in World War II or Korea, requesting the Individual Deceased Personnel File, or IDPF, can give you information about the circumstances of that person’s death in wartime. The IDPF, also called a 293 file, contains the official casualty report, which provides information about the circumstances of the person’s death, and the identification form, which deals with the identification of the person’s remains and may contain explicit and graphic information. The IDPF may also contain information on the next of kin, the funeral, the disposition of the body, and personal effects. for more click here
