Killed in action

Tombe provisoire d'un soldat américain durant la bataille de Normandie.

Killed in action (abrégé KIA or K. I. A., tué en action) est une classification employée par les militaires anglo-saxons pour décrire les pertes subies au combat par leurs forces et provoquées par des forces hostiles. C'est l'équivalent du français Mort au combat.

Pour le Département de la Défense des États-Unis, il n'est pas nécessaire d'avoir combattu effectivement pour être déclaré KIA : il suffit d'avoir été tué lors d'une attaque ennemie.
