Injured in Iraq

MASHIraq.png
Officially, about 23,000 American soldiers have been injured in Iraq. Unofficially, that count may be as high as 50,000 if you count non-combat injuries and illnesses.

Photographer Thomas Dworzak was embedded with the troops and made a slideshow about the war called MASH Iraq.

What has changed in the 50 years since the war in which the TV show M*A*S*H was set? Soldiers in this war can suffer much more severe wounds and survive, leading to a lifetime of disability and misery. Bob Woodruff, who should know, will present a special on ABC tonight about those injured in the Iraq war.

er... Death toll in Iraq is over half a million. Non-Americans are people too!

I didn't even address the number of deaths, just injuries. The statistics are horrendous for Iraqis, both death and injury.
