In 2010 930 U S soldiers were killed
or committed suicide. That is a shocking waste of life and the families have my sympathy.
In a recent post by Nancy , we are informed that in 2005 over 5000 American children were killed by guns(murder . accidents)
!!!!!!!!!!!!! why is there not more outrage at this horrible statistic?
While the deaths of the soldiers is also tragic , at least they were able to make the choice to risk their lives in warfare.
I will be back with a link to Nancys figures.
Here is a link that might be useful: statistics on soldier deaths
