    Civil - No way medical killed more then the enemy
    WW1 - No way we had some of the worst weapons compared to our enemy
    WW2 - No way see above comment
    Korean Conflict - Dont even know this war LOL
    Vietnam - Last choice but still the one id rather be in. At least we had decent weapon and 5 dolla make you halla options

    If i really had to choose it would the the Gulf because we pretty much owned the entire thing start to finish and we lost the least amount of Military folk

    Yes... I was careful to put "Conflict" in the Korean one... I left out the Gulf on purpose, although I have NO doubt it was Hell...

    civil war - 625,000 KIA 1.988% of population
    WWI - 116,516 American KIA .110% of population
    WWII - 405,399 American KIA .307% of population
    Korea - 36,516 American KIA .02% of population
    Vietnam - 58,209 American KIA .03% of population

    so by the number I will say Korea, seems I would have the greatest chance of coming home alive.

    WWII. Because then, live or die I would have contributed to beating Hitler, etc. and would have had the opportunity to fight alongside the greatest generation of heroes our country has known since the Revolution. They came home and changed this country but never forgot what they fought for. Never met one that would not do what was right just because it was right.
