Honoring WI dead and wounded in Afghanistan

WI families have faced casualties and wounded family members as the war in Afghanistan has continued for years.  The Guardian UK has put together an infographic data map using Google Fusion tables that maps out the number of American casualties and wounded in Afghanistan by state.   WI families have fared better than the nation as a whole when it comes to the casualties and wounds of Operation Enduring Freedom with 23 deaths in action, 5 other deaths and 229 wounded, a ratio below that of the nation on a per capita basis.

Kudos to all who serve or have served and to their families who have been impacted by their deaths, their wounds and have yet to confront the countless mental and physical difficulties that many of them will encounter in the years ahead.
