BAGHDAD (AP) — August marks the first month since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq that no American forces have died.
Figures compiled by The Associated Press show that there were no American forces killed in Iraq in August either in combat or non-combat related situations.
There have been previous months during which there were no combat related deaths but during which some people died in non-combat related situations.
According to an Associated Press tally, 4,474 American service members have died in Iraq since the war began.
