I don't know anything about SCARS or Peterson (or much else ), but what I can say is that a unit can be classified as a total loss without every single soldier being dead. My grandfather's unit in WWII was classified as destroyed twice.

This is fom the "Mens Health" article.
I wonder how true it is??
My dad was with the 173rd Headquarters 66/67
and he told me that at that time all of Charlie Company was
either killed or severly injured.
Would like to see when he was there.
