As of Tuesday, at least 1,379 members of the U.S. military have died since the beginning of the Iraq war in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count.
At least 1,080 died as a result of hostile action, the Defense Department said. The figures include three military civilians.
The AP count is seven higher than the Defense Department’s tally, last updated at 7 a.m. PST Tuesday.
Since May 1, 2003, when President Bush declared that major combat operations in Iraq had ended, 1,241 U.S. military members have died.
