Sounds good from this end. GunsareOK has agreed to do the AAR. Just no photographer yet. He'll be picking up the signs, flags and banner.

A OBone from Colonial Beach,VA requested directions.

If everyone does show, looks like 5-6 FReepers.

There is a leftist at Olney with a sign that has the number of killed in Iraq. Maybe someone can talk to her. :-)) If not I'll do it next week. Couldn't really do it before since the numbers were low and didn't want to leave our corner. Plus it looks like she's a regular now.

Thanks all for heeding the call.

See you at WR if you're there. We'll have to leave early though.

Am I understanding this correctly? Military deaths are actually lower under George W. Bush during wartime than they have been under all these other presidents, including during peacetime???!!!!

I don’t want to mislead anyone. In the document I referenced, only one year of Carter is covered (his last), whereas 8 years each for Reagan and Clinton, and four years each for the two Bushes are covered. Note that 2005 was NOT included. The numbers I posted were the yearly averages for each President – just for the data in the document.

The result was that Clinton’s average for the total number of deaths was the lowest, while George W Bush’s was the next lowest (this number would go up if 2005 were included, but his “ranking” by average total deaths probably wouldn’t change). Carter’s last year was the highest.

Also, note in my previous post that George W. Bush’s average deaths due to hostile action is the highest.

CJ posted some more data of this type on his milblog:

http://www.soldiersperspective.us/index.php?paged=2

This is the average number of combat deaths for each major war in the past hundred years or so (his post includes the total number of months and deaths plus some marvelous perspectives). Draw your own conclusions…

War          Av. Deaths
             Per month

WWI            2816
WWII           6639
Korea           909
Vietnam         526
Gulf War I      148
Iraq             55
