Honoring those who kept us free

MemorialThis is the weekend we kick-up our grills, fly our flags and search almost hopelessly for a movie that portray’s our servicemen as heroes and the US as the good guy.  The movie Platoon doesn’t count.  The History Channel seems to be our last best hope.

GatewayPundit has graphed the number of soldiers who died to keep us free in each our country’s wars.

Here are those numbers adjusted for population.

Interesting how deaths have declined over the years. GatewayPundit points out that military deaths in the current War on Terror are half of what they were during the Clinton years. Ouch.
