Remembering those who perished in service to this country:

  • Civil War: 655,000
  • World War I: 116,516
  • World War II: 405,399
  • Korean War: 36,516

And as vaccines start to take hold, also thinking of these American lives lost:

  • Flu Pandemic of 1918: 675,000
  • COVID-19 Pandemic: 591,265

Rest in Peace πŸ’œ
