Topic: Did you personally know anyone who died in Iraq?


I just recieved an e-mail that made Operation Iraqi Freedom a little more personal. One of the soldiers that I served in Iraq in 2002-2003, died in Fallujah from mortar fire in his second tour of Iraq. This is the first time I have personally known someone who died in Iraq. As I said, it makes the war a little more personal.

I personally didn't, but my fiance lost one of his friends over there. The day he found out was a really hard day.

Iraq War Casualties? So far about 1080 American troops died, wounded unknown. Allies forces, maybe less than half hundred dead.

No. All my friends have been safe so far. They're in the Air Force, so their base of ops is usually (not always) further from hostility.
