2. The average age of those who were killed was 23.11 years.
3. The average infantryman in World War II saw about 40 days of combat in four years. The average infantryman in the Vietnam War saw 240 days of combat a year.
4. After Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia managed to stay Communist free.
