Cost of War In Long-Term $'s

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — If history is any judge, the U.S. government will be paying for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars for the next century as service members and their families grapple with the sacrifices of combat. An Associated Press analysis of federal payment records found that the government is still making monthly payments to relatives of Civil War veterans — 148 years after the conflict ended. Tens of billions of dollars are covering other wars from the 20th century. Sen. Patty Murray says such costs should remind the nation about war's long-lasting financial toll.
