26. Just so the young people don't get misinformed...........

The number you are defining is the number of American soldiers killed in battle. Not including those dead from other causes.

The US covid-19 death rate is pretty unthinkable though. Just as your allusion implies.

WW2 American killed and wounded soldiers were about 8% of the total 1942 US population.

There was misery enough for all. My mother always remarked that she didn't know that there was such a thing as no world at war until she was 12. I always replied that there is still no time when war is not someplace in the world. Then she'd say, "yes, but not our war."

Funny, what one remembers.
