As of Tuesday, April 12, 2011, at least 1,424 members of the U.S. military had died in Afghanistan as a result of the U.S. invasion in late 2001, according to an Associated Press count.

The AP count is three more than the Defense Department’s tally, last updated Tuesday at 10 a.m. EDT.

At least 1,174 military service members have died in Afghanistan as a result of hostile action, according to the military’s numbers.

Outside of Afghanistan, the department reports at least 99 more members of the U.S. military died in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Of those, 11 were the result of hostile action.

The AP count of total OEF casualties outside of Afghanistan is three fewer than the department’s tally.

The Defense Department also counts two military civilian deaths.

    Compared to WW2.Of course besides the numbers one major difference is that we are not allowed to win.Our guys fight for druggie congressmen and globalist metrosexual presidents who take us to war under UN authority.Can i use a bad word here? Fuck the UN.Wanna save money,withdraw from the UN and send no more money to foreign countries.1,424 of our people died and we can’t get ballots to the military in time for them to vote.
