The number of US deaths in Iraq: 3287

Almost as many US citizens were killed in Iraq during this war as live in Wellsburg, West Virginia, (population 3385) the town in the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia where I grew up.

These casualties are up from 3150 in my last post on February 22, 1987.

The source is a database called Iraq Coalition Casualties, which details all the deaths and casualties of Bush’s Iraq War.

To break it down further, for those who might be interested:

  • The state of Ohio gave 142 (up 4) of its sons and daughters.
  • West Virginia lost 18 of its fine young men and women.

And the killing continues with no plans to stop.
