That's 20K more than all the deaths for the entirety of the Vietnam war.
No, that's 14K more than all of the US soldier deaths in Vietnam. More than 280,000 allied soldiers died, more than 425,000 NVA/VC soldiers died, and over 625,000 North and South Vietnamese civilians were killed by both sides.
