Wounded in Action, better known as "WIA," is a classification used by the United Nations Space Command to denote service members that have been wounded during a battle situation. Being Wounded in Action will result in being rewarded with a Purple Heart.

When SPARTAN-IIs are killed, they are reported Missing or Wounded in Action to create the illusion that Spartans never die. This was designed to help boost morale for the UNSC.[1] It is extremely likely that all SPARTANs have been wounded in action at some point.[1]
