Total amputees from ten years of war in the middle east is hard to nail down because DOD tends to lump all conditions together.

Quite a few injuries occur in training and motorcycle accidents. The Marine Corps now requires marines to go through a safety course before motocycles are allowed on base.

As far as combat best estimates are about a thousand men and women have lost limbs in Afganistan and Iraq.Vietnam had about 6 thousand. World War Two about 15 thousand and Korea 2 thousand.

Those are estimates because the services dont really keep those kinds of records. the real figures will not be known until its aall said and done and someone decides to do a doctoral dance around the facts.

Hard to say.  1000's of IED's placed b-sde roads.
Shrapnel travels 4 miles or more.
Ballistic armor only covers so much.
Pray 4 wounded and psych disabled vets.

Leftists drive ppl to grudges. What good is there in that? Elections here are over. Fix up what Obama ruined.
