Component ID: #ti109031968

To commemorate this milestone anniversary of the Allied nations’ Victory in Europe (V-E) Day and Victory Over Japan (V-J) Day, the Census Bureau presents a wide range of statistics related to those who served in World War II. The topics covered include the number of living veterans at the time of each decennial census, a breakdown of those serving by whether they were volunteers or inducted draftees, number of wounded or killed, average duration of service, the units women served in, and how active duty military strength during this era compared to levels in subsequent wars.
