A tree with red ribbons signifies the wounded and one with black ribbons signifies the soldiers who have been killed.

As of Nov. 11, more than 2,000 U.S. soldiers have died and 17,939 have been wounded in the 11 years of war in Afghanistan -- Operation Enduring Freedom -- according to the U.S. Department of Defense.

Slightly more than 40 percent of American battle casualties in Afghanistan have been caused by Improvised Explosive Devices, according to a count by the Brookings Institution.

Veterans Day is Sunday Nov. 11 and Olsonís wish is that we take time to remember and honor our veterans both alive and deceased.

Olson is a Vietnam veteran and the commander of the local chapter of the Disabled American Veterans. He lives at 1003 East D St.
