MACR Status Abbreviation

While going through MACR files at the National Archives a few years ago, I was given the following list:

CASUALITY ABBREVIATIONS

KIA - Killed In Action
MIA - Missing In Action
WIA - Wounded In Action
DED - Declared Dead (Public Law 490)
DOWRIA - Died Of Wounds Received In Action
DOW - Died Of Wounds
EUS - Evacuated To The United States
RTD - Returned To Duty
ALW - Alive And Well
DNB - Died Non-Battle
SWA - Seriously Wounded In Action
LWA - Lightly Wounded In Action
NOK - Next Of Kin
ASN - Army Serial Number
POW - Prisoner Of War
RMC - Returned To Military Control
DL - Dead List

I hope the list proves helpful.

    To add to Randy's list and other comments...the following were found on MACR 11400 for 31 July 1944 with the 27th FG.

    DOI- died of wounds received in action
    SLA - seriously injured in action
    LIA - lightly injured in action
    SIU - seriously gassed (hospitalized)
    CAP - captured by enemy
    INT - interned as result of enemy action
    RTD - returned to duty from previously reported casualty status

    Added from other posts:

    PDD - Presumed Date of Death
    DIE - Died in Escape
    KNB - Killed Non Battle
    Here are several other items that I have recently found that might be of interest.
     
    DED is also know by the term Form 371 or simply 371 on the MACRs in the area of the pilot's name. This Form was entitled "Data on Remains not yet Recovered or Identified"
    EOD is 'Evidence of Death'. I do not know the Form # but the title is one of the many 'Battle Casualty Reports'
    RAMP is the term 'Recovered Allied Military Personel'
     
    AFPPA-8 was the Form type letter sent to the next of kin information one of the death of their service person.
    AFPPA-12 was the Form entitled 'Casualty Questionaire. This was usually filled out after Wars end by personnel that were either POW, EVD, or INT.
     
    Hopefully I can add to this in the future.  Ted51

    Gentlemen, I have some more abbreviations found in MACR's. It's about the crew's duty and position on board of the aircraft. For example:
    CP...Co Pilot
    N...Navigator
    B...Bombardier
    E...Engineer
    G...Gunner
    so far, so clear. Maybe anyone can help me with these:
    AEG...???
    ROG...???
    AAKG...???
    AEOG...???
    AAG...???
    AG...???
    Thanks alot for your help!

    Here are a few of them,  I'll  see if I can find the rest.
     
    AEG   Aerial Engineer Gunner  (MOS 748)
    ROG   Radio Operator Gunner  
    AG   Aerial Gunner  (MOS 611)  or Armorer Gunner  (MOS 612). 
     
    I think the "G" is Gunner in  the others and "A"  is most likely Aerial or Airplane or Armorer.
    Some of these have been discussed before:
    http://forum.armyairforces.com/tm.aspx?m=101168&mpage=&print=true
    For example, AAG was thought to be Armorer Aerial Gunner there.  It could also be
    Airplane Armorer Gunner.   
    Several of these are here:
