Morning Reports

As the name implies, the Military Services created Morning Reports each morning to detail each day's personnel changes. They are an "exception based" system, only containing information on those individuals who were not "present and accounted for." Among the reasons for being listed on a Morning Report: promotion or demotion; being killed, wounded or missing in action; being assigned to a unit or leaving a unit; going to a hospital for treatment or to another activity for training.
