Macabre trivia.

I was doing some research for a post on the other blog and stumbled across an interesting bit of historical data.

As CNN/NBC/ABC/CBS and all the print media will no doubt remind you several zillion times today, we have suffered ~3,500 KIA in Iraq thus far.

Comparatively, the US Army suffered about 5,100 KIA on June 6th, 1944 on the beaches of Normandy and in the villages behind them.
