515 Californians Have Lost Their Lives in the War
Although today is Veterans Day, the holiday also serves as a reminder of those who served next to our Vets that did not come home.
Between 2001 and October 24th, 515 men and women from California serving in the Iraq and Afghanistan have died. The LA Times has been keeping a database called "California’s War Dead" that keeps stats on those who fought for us. 24 troops from Los Angeles have passed as well as many from surrounding cities.
