Some have given all since before we even were a country. There have been approximately 1.1 million American casualties in all our wars.
Those numbers do not reflect the number of Americans who have been maimed by war.
Something to consider:
When men talk about war, the stories and terminology vary – it’s this battle, these weapons, this terrain. But no matter where you go in the world, women use the same language to speak of war. They speak of fire, they speak of death, and they speak of starvation.
