http://icasualties.org/oif/ Go to the link and you will get all of the casualties in Iraq close to up to date. Now, lets say that we have rotated about 600,000 individual military personnel since 2003. (some say 1,000,000 but I choose to use a smaller # because I can't find the exact # to link) If you take the KIA # on the link above our KIA rate is 1/2 of 1%. If you take the total of WRT & Wounded the rate is 3%. If you take just the wounded that did not return to duty after 72 hours the rate is 1.5% These would be considered to be "light" casualty #'s by any military commander. Each individual one is a tragedy. Sometimes it does help to put things into prospective.
