Answer I heard it was 68,000 . Michael Badnarik began studying the Constitution and Bill of Rights twenty-five years ago, which led him to the disturbing conclusion that MO…ST of what our federal, state, and local governments do is unconstitutional. He finds this state of affairs unconscionable and totally unacceptable. Since then he has done everything within his sphere of influence to restore our Constitutional republic. This quest has led him to run for Texas State Representative in 2000 and 2002; to successfully win the Libertarian nomination for President of the United States in 2004: and to campaign for US Congressional Representative from Texas in 2006.. I heard him say on his radio broadcast on WTPRN.com on July 30 2007 that 58,000 American soldiers died during the war and that 68,000 committed suicide after coming back from the war.
over 58,000 men and 8 women
While there are no hard numbers, about 100,000 veterans of Vietnam have committed suicide. Many of them suffered with post traumatic stress disorder that was never treated… or treated properly.
Over 2 1/2 million men served in country; over 3 million total served in SE Asia. Minus the 58,000 dead, and attrition over the past 40 years, would be the remaining vet…erans. The VA website has an approximate list showing numbers.
58,267 names are arranged chronologically in order of the date of casualty.
Over 2 million. Over 2 1/2 million men served in country.
For the United States, and disregarding time and age; there were over 2,590,000 men serving in Vietnam, of which over 58,000 died.
3,403,100 US servicemen served in SEA (South East Asia). 2,594,000 men served in country.
There should be less than 3,403,100 Vietnam veterans.
Counting Southerners and Northerners; millions (remember, MANY of these men were teenagers when they fought).
Wikipedia says the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial is 2.00 acres. Hope this helps! -Josh
In Vietnam War
Im sure its around 63%!?
A VA doctor estimated that 200,000 U.S. soldiers died from suicides and that the numbers of suicides related to media were low because some of the suicides were deemed acciden…ts from self inflicted gunshot wounds to drunk driving accidents and no suicide notes were left behind.
In Vietnam War
The names on the wall represent friends who we fought side-by-side with in combat. They were VERY close friends. Since the wall and the inscription of their names represent th…ose friends, Vietnam veterans attempt to reach out or connect with those we lost by leaving mementos at the wall. It is like a family leaving flowers at the grave of a loved one, only a bit more personal.
They are showing that they remember their fallen comrades.
