Austell Georgia Memorial
The Confederate Memorial in Arlington National Cemetery, "not for fame or reward, not for place or for rank, but in simple obedience to duty, as they understood it."

There were six young men from Austell that lost their lives inVietnam and Cambodia. The first one was Jimmy Crook, he died on my 16th birthday, June 3, 1967. Jimmy was a Marine Corps draftee, all six of the Austell men were either 0311 or 11B Infantryman. I did some calculating and divided the number that were killed from Austell by the population and came up with the figure of .003. After this I multiplied that figure by 250,000,000- the approximate population of the United States and came up with the figure of 750,000. Pretty sobering statistics for Austell, Georgia. If you are inclined to do the math I will save you the trouble, the national rate was .000232. Austell had a loss rate of 600 per 100,000 males, with West Virginia having the highest state death rate of 84. As far as I know state death rates are the only ones that are published.
