How many American Korean War Veterans are there alive still today you have heard an estimate of 4 million but is that of American Veterans or all veterans?
Approximately 4 million (3.9 million) Korean War veterans. The problem with this particular data is that MOST of the veterans of the Korean War were also veterans of WW2. The reason was Korea occurred only 5 years after WW2. During those days a man's military obligation was six years (today it's 8 y…ears); consequently a serviceman could end up fighting in WW2 and the Korean War within one enlistment (or one obligation tour).. WW2 & Korea were the only US wars of the 20th century that had this over-lapping effect. An effect that caused statistical complications & making Korea the "Forgotten War.". A Veteran of both WW2 & Korea would invariably discuss his WW2 experience to an historian, but would usually just quickly gloss over his Korean War experience with a "...oh yeah, I fought in Korea too...". The result; Korea became the "Forgotten War." ( Full Answer )

I don't know: It has become a very emotive topic. I once said that if I went to the Battlefied of Waterloo (100 years before WW1) I would not be in the slightest bit concerned abut how many people had died there. WW1 is (by & large) no less historic now, so why are people so interested in the (Great…) loss of life ? Having said that Owens' Dulce et Decorum Est... is for example, a great example of war poetry. What changed in warfare that men wrote tragic poems about it ? I suppose the difference is in the amount of media coverage & the proximity, in modern terms, of warfare to the populous as a whole. Formerly battles were entirely military affairs, the men went off to war, did their stuff & came home, or not, as the case may be. But the horror was no less great, I suppose the exposure changed & involved people more...... ___ WW1 is remembered for a variety of reasons: It was the first truly global war. Many towns saw an entire generation of young men wiped out, sometimes in one single battle. People entered WW1 with a kind of naivety that was quickly replaced with a cynicism and sense of hopelessness It stands as one of histories great watersheds. Death on this scale was unprecedented in modern memory. Trench warfare and poison gas still represent the worse type of warfare Many photos, letters, books and films still exist that can be studied. These help keep the war fresh. Almost every town, village, city that participated in the conflict has a cenotaph with the names of the men who died. This type of memorial also helps keep the conflict in our memories. Most people who look at the vast war cemeteries scattered across Europe are deeply moved at the site of such carnage. The fact we use the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month as a day of Remembrance for all war dead dates back to this conflict. The unresolved issues of WW1 helped plunge the world back into another major, global conflict. ( Full Answer )

Most of them. Mortality among US service personnel in WWI was onlyabout 2-3%. Over 4 million served, and just over 100,000 died. Mostof these men died in the last six months of the war, as US forcesbeame heavily involved after May, 1918. This figure does notinclude deaths from the worldwide "Spanish… Flu" epidemic, whichkilled many millions around the world, including young, healtysoldiers, who sickened and died within a few days from thisscourge. Most of the US dead were members of the US Army. Some units were inaction longer than others, and around nine of the forty-two massivedivisions the US sent to France suffered significant casualties.There were about 3,600 dead Marines, of al causes. Marines wereone-half of the US 2nd Division, which saw a lot of action in thetrenches. Only a few hundred sailors died. The air force was partof the US Army through both world wars. It was not large in WWI,and thus its total casualties were a small percentage of theoverall loss. In addition to these 4 million WWI vets there were many thousandsof Spanish-America War vets alive in 1918, and thousands of CivilWar veterans, and probably a few creaky, ancient Mexican War vets.
