US Military Casualties Down from 2005 to 2006

Mudville Gazette has news that you’d be hard pressed to find in the AP, or Reuters, or any paper that runs their wire stories.

The year total of 816 as of Saturday morning, is on course to be slightly lower than last year’s 846 U.S. fatalities.

The number of U.S. wounded also declined this year, from 5,947 in 2005 to 5,676 so far this year.

(We should also note that the majority of troops wounded in Iraq returned to duty within 72 hours.)
