Here is the complete list of professional football players that were "Killed in Action" (KIA) during World War II, The Vietnam War or during the War on Terror. We have also included the (7) professional football players that died as a result of "Non-Combat" related activities which are designated as (DNB) "Died Non-Battle". The (7) DNB players died while on active duty and most were training to go to war in one fashion or another and are certainly worthy of being listed here.
Also included on this list is Jack Chevigny, the only professional football coach to have been killed during combat.
All of these men are true American Heroes. Each man gave his life for our country and that sacrifice should never be forgotten.
Killed In Action (KIA): (30 Players, 1 Coach):
Lt. Jack Chevigny (Coach)
Died Non-Battle (DNB): (6) Players:
