One might have an image of a US soldier as a Caucasian male dressed in a sharp military uniform. The demographics of the US military show otherwise. Historically the make up of the US Military is quite eye opening with large numbers of the fallen being Black, Asian, Hispanic, Muslim, Jewish, and non denominational. The vast majority are from small towns. Another shocking fact is that many fighting for our freedom are not even US citizens. That's correct. We have service members from every war who have given their lives in combat, who were not citizens. We have citizen who won't bother to serve in defense of our nation.
