Veterans for Common Sense Releases Complete Casualty Count for Iraq and Afghanistan Wars
The grand total of U.S. killed, wounded, injured, and ill for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars reached nearly 67,000 at the end of July 2007, according to casualty reports published by the Department of Defense on August 4, 2007.  For July 2007, there were 1,720 U.S. casualties.  This means more than 55 U.S. service members killed, wounded, injured, or ill each day.
Veterans for Common Sense obtained this information after filing a Freedom of Information Act request with the Department of Defense, Defense Manpower Data Center , Statistical Analysis Division.  In response the DoD provided VCS with links to their complete casualty reports for both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Thank you,
Paul Sullivan

Wounded Warriors Retreat
Because of your continued support and generosity, construction of the Wounded Warriors Retreat will begin in the Spring of 2009.
We have had several families dedicate"Global War On Terror Memorial Bricks" to their own sons. It is moving to read the letters that come from families who have lost a son or daughter and want to help to build the Retreat while memorializing a loved one who gave all that there was to give.
Students from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln School of Architecture's third year design studio have spent their semester working on preliminary designs of the Retreat. A press conference was held last Friday to show the public their designs. A short video can be viewed here.
If you would like to know more about the Wounded Warriors Retreat or how you can help, please call me.
I enjoy hearing from you.
Semper Fidelis!
