The Illinois chapter of NATP is holding their conference today and will observe a minute of silence in rememberance of those who have served and those who continue to serve our country. CPE would be worthless and meaningless without the freedoms bought by our servicemen and servicewomen.

I agree. Many Americans have forgotten these two most recent wars and we need to rememeber the great sacrifices made.

IRAQ US Casualties (to destory WMD): "As of May 28, 2010, there were 4,404 dead and 31,827 wounded in action (WIA).[38] See the references for a breakdown of the wounded, injured, ill, those returned to duty (RTD), those requiring medical air transport, non-hostile-related medical air transports, non-hostile injuries, diseases, or other medical reasons.[38][39][40][41][42]" WIKI

When they say wounded in action today, that often means badly wounded because medical science allows us to save many who would have died in Vietnam. So we have soldiers who survived, but they will need help for the rest of their lives. I hope we help them instead of just talking about it.

AFGANISTAN: The forgotten war: 1,378 US troops killed so far. How many injured I don't know.

>>>I don't know if the above numbers include suicides among our troops, which have been unusually high for both wars by historical standards.

>>>"The average age of this group of American forces killed overseas, is 23.3 years old. The average age of the troops killed in our last report, was 24.2. I referenced in that report on August 8th, 2009, that the age was gradually becoming lower as the months have passed. Some reports have contained data on individuals in their 50's, but we are seeing less of this." As of: Salem-News.com, Sept. 15, 2009.
