Subject: Veterans Day stats: 1,326,612 KIA/LOD


Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans. As veterans, we do Welcome Home all who served. However, for most of us we cannot help remembering those we served with whose lifes were lost. We also recognize that of those serving today many will also fall in service to our country.

Here are some stats that I am sure most Americans are unaware of concerning the numbers of men and women who died in combat or line of duty, or were wounded in action:

* Killed In Action or Line of Duty: 1,326,612. If each of the 1,326,612 KIA/LOD stood in formation, shoulder-to -shoulder (every 36 inches), the line would extend 753 miles.

* Wounded In Action: 1,531,036.
