The sad truth appears to be that many of our Service Members have been turned into toxic guinea pigs pumped full of shot after shot, drug after drug before being deployed, and often even when not deployed.
The various degenerative muscle and immune system diseases that appear to result from this, then are treated with a wide range of experimental chemicals, injections, and treatments that seem to turn them into death on legs, slowly robbing them of the ability to enjoy quality of life and healthy normal bodily functions until some overtaxed part of their system finally gives out and dies.
I have seen a few friends go from healthy bulls to walking skeletons before passing away and know a couple more suffering from the process.
The drug companies are getting rich off of all the immunizations before hand and then all the treatments afterwards.
Its controlled genocide for profit, and one more very good reason not to join the US Military.

I do remember this definition of KIA from years back...they had to die in Iraq to be counted, and it was rumored that there was a concerted effort to fly them out to Germany fast...
I remember discussing at the time that this may have been part of the reason for not showing the coffins coming home.
Funny too that one of the first things this administration was lift that restriction, and yet we still don't see that horrible part of warthe part that would go a long way toward making people snap.. www.abovetopsecret.com...
I bet there are some threads around about this somewhere. It was probably around 2005 or 2006?
Oh, and don't forget the PMCs, who are counted and reported differently too. Not sure quite how, but...edit on 5/6/2011 by ~Lucidity because: (no reason given)

soldiers are paid to being killed.
if you accept to have an army, i'm failing to see where is the problem in having soldiers killed since that's the whole point of it.
how many iraki civilians killed (not including the death from no food from blocade) ?
1,5 millions or 2 millions ?
so your 74000 is what ?
5% of the total count (if you count them as equal but they are soldier so in fact they count far less than the women and children they have killed)
might sound absurd to yo but what is war really ?

You may recall that we entered this theater to stop bloodshed. It takes force and gunfire to eliminate those who kill their own countrymen, or who would set up killing regimes.
Results of veterans' assessment programmes in the UK and the USA indicate neither an abnormal pattern of disease which might be expected to result in worsening health with time nor the presence of any unique Gulf-related condition1,2,14,15,16. Veterans do not have an excess of hospital admissions17,18 or have children with excess birth defects19,20. While there was a small statistically significant increase in deaths among American Gulf veterans21,22,23, this was due to accidents not disease; moreover, a recent study by Kang's group24 does not show any significant difference in mortality rates. A UK study showed fewer deaths from disease but more accidental deaths among Gulf veterans than in controls; these results did not reach statistical significance25. There were no excess deaths from cancers. Our clinically derived series from 3000 veterans supports the view of Unwin et al.5 that veterans' physical and social disability was generally not severe.

You do press one heck of an issue, and one cannot argue with it.
My only problem is the military prefers the young and dumb, I am not making a statement here as i consider myself as used to be young and dumb, but young minds are impressionable and young boys see the romance of carrying a big gun and being in charge, yelling like a big man.
Some will actually get to realize what is going on and mature.
I think the best idea would have been to not go to war at all and just seek out the heads and predator drone them to death.
Problem solved, as we would have no military death and if done right the only civillians would have been the ones in direct contact with said criminals.

Even ONE death is too many when the wars were based on manipulated evidence, lies, deceit, and MIC interests- so "frankly, I don't give a damn, my dear." I given all damns a man can give in one lifetime already.
