Memorial Day in the United States—an underappreciated holiday. Look at the sacrifice that Americans made in defending us.

The American revolution started it all — 8,000 killed – 25,000 wounded.

A few years later, the War of 1812 —2,200 killed – 4,500 wounded.

Then the Mexican War in the 1840s — 1,700 killed – 4,512 wounded.

The Civil War, the absolute worst – 650,000 Americans killed (on both sides) – 1.5 million wounded.

The Spanish American War, 385 Americans killed, 1,600 wounded.

World War I—53,000 dead – 204,000 wounded.

World War II—291,000 Americans dead – 670,000 wounded.

Korean War—33,000 dead – 92,000 wounded.

Vietnam—47,000 dead – 153,000 wounded.

The Gulf War—190 Americans dead – 849 wounded.

The ongoing war in Afghanistan—180,033 dead – 23,000 wounded.

Iraq—3,800 dead – 32,000 wounded.

Memorial Day—think about it.
