Abstract: Using the methods of Kang et al. and recent results on the characters of Kirillov-Reshetikhin modules by Nakajima and Hernandez, the existence of Kirillov-Reshetikhin crystals $ B^{r,s}$ is established for all nonexceptional affine types. We also prove that the crystals $ B^{r,s}$ of type $ B_n^{(1)}$, $ D_n^{(1)}$, and $ A_{2n-1}^{(2)}$ are isomorphic to recently constructed combinatorial crystals for $ r$ not a spin node.
