    Interesting graphic, thanks for posting, but how are there 4.8 million Gulf War vets?? According to Wikipedia there were a hair under 700,000 US troops deployed to that war (956,600 coalition troops of which 73% were Americans)…..that doesn’t include Air Force and Navy personnel deployed in support of the war but even then I don’t see how you get close to 4.8 million. Does that figure include everyone who was in service at the time of the Gulf War, to include reserve components?

      I could very well be wrong about this, but I would assume that everyone serving over there since the Gulf War are considered veterans.

      After the Gulf War ended we continued operations North and South of Iraq. Operation Southern Watch and Operation Northern Watch continued until the start of the war in Iraq in 2003.

      My guess is everyone who has served over there in those 12 years gets veterans status?

    Nice job – I’d like to see some of the Veteran business statistics, such as Nick covered a year or so ago in Nick’s Rant. Keep up the great work, you guys are a great example and leaders in the Veteran community. RLTW

    Great graphic. Most information is interesting and correct. However, what’s up with the Nazi Stalhem Helmets?
