The most grim statistics are kept at the Iraq Coalition Casualties website.

 

As of May 29, 104 US troop were killed in May.

 

Yahoo news is now reporting eight more US deaths on Memorial Day. And the plain truth is more US deaths in the next two days are a near certainty.

 

And this pace should result in our exceeding 112 US deaths, making May 2007 the most deadly for the US since November 2004.
