Veteran's Day, 2009

Some facts to ponder:

To date more than 27,000 men and women have been wounded in operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The amputation rate of wounded soldiers in Iraq has doubled from previous wars to 6% of those injured.
24.9 million military veterans live in the United States.
1 in 3 homeless males are veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces.
76 percent of veterans experience alcohol, drug, or mental health problems.

I found the above facts right here.
