This is Funny, too!

Please enjoy this example of misused underlining. Possibly harder to find than misused quotation marks, but worth the effort.


It’s like they knew that underlining can be used for emphasis, but then just kind of gave up there at the end.

Underlining aside, is there a difference between "personnel killed" and "mortally wounded"? Like sometimes you're dead instantly and other times you're dead somewhat later. Would death benefits differ?

@1 The key words being "in Korea", so they include "mortally wounded" because they're counting people who were mortally wounded in Korea but lived long enough to, say, ship home and die in the US. Just a bit of confusing clarity on who exactly gets included.
