Current approximate United States veteran population 22,234,000
World War II veterans 1.7 million
Korean War veterans 2.3 million
Peacetime only veterans 5.7 million
Gulf War veterans 5.9 million
Vietnam War Era veterans 7.4 million
(Please note--Categories are not mutually exclusive. Veterans may serve in multiple periods).
I highly recommend the 2012 Veterans Day Teacher Resource Guide. You may find a list of the wars there on page 17. Also helpful is this quick statistics at a glance.
