Donaghue and Mrs. J. Karner. "These hard working ladies did a great job, a total of 10,980 boxes of cookies were sold. A sincere Thanks to everyone and the Forest Park Review for promoting our cookie sale. Gillians Island Left to right: Sam, John and Tim Gillian. Where is ••Gillian's Island"?

John B. Nasor, Director of the V.A,'s Regional Office in Chicago said "Total participants in the" Viet Nam war, which officially dates from August 4, 1964, reached 7,626,000 as of December 31, 1970". World War If, known as "The Big One", dating from September 16, 1940 to July 25, 1947, had ^16,535,000 participants. World ^War I, known as "The Great War", had 4,744,000 in uniform. The third largest participation,by American Servicemen was the poorly nan\ed Korean conflict. From June 27, 1950 to January 13, 1955, there were 6,807,000 Americans involved in this so-called conflict. This tabulation, coming from John Naser, shows that of the 7,626,000 Viet Nam veterans, 887,000 also served during the Korean conflict. As of December 31, 1970, there have been 44,000 combat deaths in Viet Nam and 38,000 deaths from other causes of men on active duty. The Korean conflict had 55,000 casualties. World War n had 406,000 deaths and World War I had 116,000. Naser said that "the living veteran population In the United States was 27,943,000 as of January 1, 1971". Of these, 4,642,000 are from Viet Nam; 4,878,000 from Korea; 14,374,000 from World War n and 1,466,000 from World War I. Speaking of veterans, there is still one living from the Indian Wars of 1817 to 1898. He is Fredrak Frask of Chicago. Surprisingly so, to many people, America's most costly war In lives was the Civil War of 1861-1865. Of the 2,213,000 Union forces, there was a total of 364,000 deaths. The Southern Forces, which numbered over 1,000,000, had 133,821 deaths. Our country's three other wars were the Revolution of 17751784, in which 290,000 men took part, 4,000 of whom lost their lives; The War of 1812 in which 287,000 men took part and only 2,000 lost their lives; and the Mexican War of 1846-1848 in which 13,000 of the 79,000 participants lost their lives. Obviously, figures such as these are boring to some. But, why wait till Memorial Day or Veterans Day to remember and realize what it cost in human lives to make this great country of ours what it is today. ' Performs With Bradley U.
