The Iraq War, 10 Years of Casualties
134 Virginians and 4,802 Americans and allies have been lost in the war.
The 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq began 10 years ago this week — on March 19, 2003 — and although officially over, fighting continues with discouraging persistence.
By one count, the war is directly responsible for 189,000 deaths, not including those who died from hardship caused by the fighting.
CNN has a stunning map of all casualties in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.
In all, 4,802 Americans and allies have died in the war, according to the Iraq Coalition Casualty Count, including 134 Virginians.
Arlington National Cemetery is the resting place for more than 400,000 service members, veterans and their families, according to the cemetery's website.
