Because the Department of Defense does not maintain statistics on who should (or should not) be classified as Hispanic it becomes a guessing game at best. The 1970 census figures show that the US population was 4.5 percent Hispanic. Using names alone to determine the needed information is a less than scientific method but it yields about 3,190 names that seem to be Hispanic or 5.5 percent of the US deaths. There were 58 Lopez(s), 82 Rodriguez(s), 53 Hernandez(s), 85 Gonzalez(s) and 102 Garcia's killed in Vietnam.

Why is Latin a dead language when there are so many Latin-os around?

I think Latinos are Mexican (If i have my facts wrong i did not mean intended to offend any Mexicans or Latinos) Latin is dead because people just stopped speaking it and it faded. You could still learn Latin in College though.AnswerActually Latinos are anyone born in North or South America who speaks Spanish or Portuguese. Latinos have nothing to do with Latin.Latin is called a dead language because it has no native speakers any more. There are millions of Latinos, but zero native Latin speakers.
