There are few monuments in the United States to the U.S. Servicemen who gave their lives in service during the U.S.- Mexican War. None on the mall in Washington, D.C. These are a few of the Mexican- American War Memorials from around the U.S.
Casualty rates for the war were staggering. Of the 104,556 men who served 13,780 never returned, a casualty rate of 13%.
