Hey all -
Okay…I know this may seem a little morbid and in bad taste considering the current state of affairs in the world, but I’m seriously curious.
Of all the men and women that serve in the US military (approx 350k?), on average, how many die each day due to accidents?
I would think that since they deal with heavy machinery / explosives / etc…that they would have a high accident rate?
Of the last two Gulf wars…we kill more in shipping and handling (car crashes / helicopter crashes / transport accidents) than any enemy kill in hostile action…
Sorry if this offends, but I ask this out of a desire for knowledge…
