"When we talk about casualties the United States suffered in the first World War, we lost over 50,000 men in combat," said CASCOM Historian Tim Gilhool in reference to the 1918 flu pandemic. "But we lost over 55,000 to the pandemic."

Hear more as Gilhool discusses how some of the preventive measures put in place today would have made a difference in 1918.
