Are you looking for those who died in combat or those who died as a result of serving in/near a combat zone?
In WWI, the first Army Nurse who died in Europe was from Madison, NJ (my town). Her name was Amabel S Roberts. She died of septacemia. I can provide more information if you wish.
Dear Ms. Jones-Chambers,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The Defense Casualty Analysis System (DCAS) Public Use File contains records of U.S. military officers and soldiers who died as a result of either a hostile or non-hostile occurrence in the Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf War, or War on Terrorism from 1950 through 2005. These include the records of persons who were missing in action or prisoners of war in either the Korean War or the Vietnam War. Beginning in 1975, casualties considered as occurring during peacetime were also included. The records also include deaths resulting from accidents or illness. We searched the database for all females with 2,191 results.
The following also provide examples of women who died in service.
