Dan:
I went one better yesterday at my blog...
I mentioned major battle and wars as far back as the Revolution.
And we're STILL doing WAY better than most people realize!
Our attrition rate is so VERY low (per day) compared to every other MAJOR conflict in the past 200+ years!
And the survivability rate for our wounded troops is much higher.

Even if we only take the North side at Gettysburg, the casualties are hard to image today for a 3 day battle.

Smart bullets sure cost a lot, though. I hope we can eventually get them on their feet and paying their own way.

Which Blog is yours, Bobby?
