Predominantly, however, most of the 1,052 are in fact Iraqis. But there are individuals that are from different countries, and I don't really have that right in front of me at this time. I will just say this, that as we go through the mortuary affairs, which is a very humanitarian process -- a little gruesome, as you can imagine; a Marine who fought and might have lost a buddy is now aiding by picking up the terrorists and helping in the Islamic tradition of putting them with the right respect a combatant deserves on the battlefield. We can't really identify all of those, but some of our Iraqi brethren which are helping out in this joint effort are saying this guy is clearly from -- let's just say Syria; this individual here is from another country. And so they're helping out. But at this time, out of 1,052 most likely about 1,040 -- or 1,030 are Iraqis.
