Killed In Action, better known as KIA, is a casualty classification used by the United Nations Space Command that denotes the death of a serviceman during/after a combat mission or situation.

Due to the need to increase morale in the United Nations Space Command, SPARTAN-II supersoldiers are never listed as 'Killed In Action', but rather as Missing In Action or Wounded in Action to give the appearance that they are invincible and can never die. The SPARTAN-IIs would put a fallen member's status as MIA or WIA on their team's rosters.[1] Shortly before dying, Kurt-051 listed several SPARTAN-IIIs and a SPARTAN-II as MIA.
