    I lurk alot in here cause to be honest, im grateful for what the service men of the US do for myself, as well as my country.

    Without turning this into one of those posts, I say thank you and move on.

    I was listening to the radio on the way into work today and I thought I might of misheard something so here goes, and I apologize if this in anyway may seem 'negligent' or 'ignorant'.

    I heard them say that since August there has only been 3 combat related Marine deaths?

    True? False?

    Appears to be true. At least for Iraq. Most of the casualties appear to be non hostile.

    The latest I read was that accidental casualties in-country outnumbered combat casualties.

    Once again - the surge worked. And on a side note: Obama voted against it.
