WE ARE THE BEST KEPT SECRET OF THE WARS
According to the Department of Labor’s Defense Base Act Claim Summary Reports there were at least 44 Civilian Contractor Deaths
filed on in the first quarter of 2012.
There were at least 2,739 Injuries reported during this same time
Keep in mind that these numbers are not an accurate accounting of Contractor Casualties as many injuries and deaths are not reported as Defense Base Act Claims. Also, many of these injuries will become deaths due to the Defense Base Act Insurance Companies denial of medical benefits.
Many foreign national and local national contractors and their families are never told that they are covered under the Defense Base Act and so not included in the count.
At Least 1 DBA Death Claim was filed for Iraq.
At Least 37 DBA Death Claims were filed for Afghanistan
At Least 1 DBA Death Claim was filed for Kuwait
At Least 3 DBA Death Claims were filed for the United States
