104,366 AMERICANS buried in Europe.

112,000 AMERICANS died during WWI

391,500 AMERICANS died during WWII

33,700 AMERICANS died during the Korean conflict

58,100 AMERICANS died during Vietnam

150 AMERICANS died during the Gulf War

4300 AMERICANS died in Iraq (to date)

690 AMERICANS died in Afghanistan (to date)

I can't vouch for the accuracy of these stats but I think they ballpark the truth, at least. The veteran who posted this clearly felt strongly about it. Being as Unamerican as I am, I can't help but to wonder how many of our enemies died? Veterans like to emphasize how many Americans died. It's about service to country.

It also strikes me as significant that they died in somebody else's country. If they died defending the United States it would seem like they would have died here, defending the United States.

Yeah, good point. How can you call it "defense" when you're on THEIR turf???
