Washington Post: 1,100 U.S. Soldiers Seriously Injured

HeadlineSep 02, 2003

Since the invasion of Iraq began, the U.S. military has been forced to evacuate over 1,100 U.S. soldiers from Iraq after they were seriously wounded in action. Twice as many soldiers have now been injured during the occupation and invasion as during the Persian Gulf War. The Washington Post reports that most injuries go unreported because U.S. Central Command has stopped issuing press releases for incidents where no troops died.
