How many WWII veterans are there?


It is important to know that 16,112,566 individuals were members of the United States armed forces during World War II.  Statistics in 2012 showed that approximately 1,462,809 American veterans from this war were still living.  It is interesting to know that there were 291,557 battle deaths, 113,842 other deaths in service (non-theater), and 670,846 non-mortal wounding cases.  Strange things happen.  Believe it or not, in 2011, 670 American World War II veterans died every day.
