Hats off to all the veterans in the NACHI family. I read in today’s Philadelphia Inquirer that there are still 8 WWI vets collecting disability pensions. The VA estimates that there are fewer than fifty WWI vets remaining.
WWII vets: 3.52 million
Korean vets: 3.25 million
Vietnam [our senior trip]: 8.05 million
Desert Shield/Storm: 615,000 [theater only]
Iraq/Afghanistan: 433,000 [theater only]
God bless them all!
