Living Veterans

On Veteran’s Day in 2005, our dear Vice-President said, “approximately 25 million of our citizens once carried the title of Marine, soldier, airman, sailor, Coast Guardsman, National Guardsman, Merchant Mariner and now carry the title of veteran.”

According the 2004 census, the number of U.S. veterans was 24.5 million. 9.5 million vets were 65 or older. 33% of all veterans served in Vietnam while 16% served in WWII.
