Of course, we're celebrating here by honoring a few math-minded people who have served in the United States armed forces. While there are surely many mathematicians who have served their countries all around the world (Alan Turing comes to mind), here are three Americans that you may not have heard of...
While none of the mathematicians featured gave their lives in service (as per the definition of Memorial Day), it is important to remember them anyways, along with all the people who have and are serving to protect the United States. Are there any more mathematician servicemen that you can think of? Please let us know in the comments!
