As you fire up that barbecue and kick off the start of summer this Memorial Day weekend, ponder these facts, courtesy of the Veterans Affairs Department: More than 42.3 million people have served in the U.S. military during wartime since the Revolutionary War, and 1.2 million of them died in service. There are 16.5 million living wartime veterans, plus another 8.2 million from various peacetime eras.

 

Tom Shoop is vice president and editor in chief at Government Executive Media Group, where he oversees both print and online editorial operations. He started as associate editor of Government Executive magazine in 1989; launched the company’s flagship website, GovExec.com, in 1996; and was named editor in chief in 2007.
