Near Perfect Army Times Graphics for Military Deaths

Army Times has assembled an assortment of graphics portraying 3,000 US military casualties in Iraq.
Starting with a map of the United States, it shows what parts of the country have felt the losses most acutely. There are also graphics for age, race, service, cause of death, the regions where they died in Iraq and other breakouts. The states with the greatest losses: California with 301, Texas at 250 and New York 148.
Now let’s see graphics for the 20,000 military injuries and the losses among civilian contractors (somewhere around 600 dead) who are providing services the military once provided before the responsibilities were privatized.
