The site below is interesting in the different ways the data can be looked at, and moving due to the numbers.  RIP Paul Cassidy, CPT, US ARMY.

I just tagged our engine with a little Americana in honor of the two brave souls that I had a small connection with.

Afraid I don’t know any of their names. I worked in the emergency room most of my time in northern Thailand. The major losses were to our east but of course there were plenty of operations in Cambodia and Laos that originated from Thailand.  Air America staged a lot of ops in the Plain of Jars region which brought casualties into our hospital.  A big Sikorsky S-64E Skycrane crashed placing some radar equipment to our north, couple of the guys survived thankfully. In an old ambulance I brought in a young airman from town who died from a drug overdose, his death no more senseless than the others. We had good surgeons and no doubt many of those who passed through our emergency room made it on to the surgical ward.  We didn’t try to follow up on them because there were more the next day, mostly Laotians hired to fight by Air America.  Not sure how many faces I do recall are connected to names on the wall, more than a few I suspect. I do know that no matter how ill-conceived and mismanaged the war was they all died in service to their country.

IMO great warriors are still being produced here everyday, but the title, “the greatest generation” has not been overused in their case. :thumbsup:

Beethoven’s 7th really makes it sink in a bit.
