    A gut wrenching and unfortunate fact of war. Is this a lead in to a bigger point or are you just keeping score?

    Agreed. We lost 191,963 during the Civil War, 53,402 in WWI, 291,557 in WW2, 33,741 in Korea, 47,424 in Vietnam - link

    3,000+ is sad and terrible, but it is a relatively low number.

    And that's only combatants. In the Civil War, over 500,000 Americans were killed.

    Especially when adjusted for population totals.
