Amputee Statistics from Army Medicine website

Numbers of amputees

These numbers represent persons treated in Army hospitals. They represent numbers of persons sustaining the loss of hands, feet, arms and/or legs; they do not include the loss of fingers and/or toes.

179 Army soldiers, 27 of whom are multiple amputees
55 Marines, 10 of whom are multiple amputees
4 Navy sailors, no multiple amputees
2 Air Force amputees, 1 of whom is a multiple amputee
Total of 240 service member amputees treated in Army hospitals

77 of these individuals have had upper extremity involvement (29%)

WRAMC has treated a total of 211 service members from OIF:

163 Army Soldiers, 22 of whom are multiple amputees
42 Marines, 7 of whom are multiple amputees
4 Navy sailors, no multiple amputees
2 Air Force airmen, 1 of whom is a multiple amputee
BAMC has treated a total of 38 service members from OIF:

28 Army Soldiers, 5 of whom are multiple amputees
9 Marines, 1 of whom is a multiple amputee
No Navy sailor amputees
1 Air Force airman, single-limb amputee
(Note: Some service members may have received treatment at both WRAMC and BAMC, so numbers from each individual facility may add up to more than the total number of amputees treated at all Army facilities.)
