A proportionate mortality study was conducted to determine if the post-service mortality experience of 6,668 Army Vietnam veterans who served in Military Region I (I Corps) was different from that of 27,917 Army non-Vietnam veterans. Statistically significant excesses of deaths were observed for motor vehicle accidents & accidental poisonings. Suicides & deaths due to any other major disease categories including malignant neoplasms were no more frequent among the I Corps than their counterparts.
