Some of you may know that I have written dozens of articles (and posts here) in the past nearly five years on noncombat U.S. fatalities in Iraq, including suicides, which are now approaching 900. The mother of a soldier I wrote about not long ago, who died from electrocution, has just written to ask for help in finding other cases of death in that way over there, or any information on military guidelines on preventing this type of incident. I found eight death-by-electrocution cases from Iraq Casualty Count but that may be quite incomplete, as her son is not even listed that way. If you can help, contact me at : firstname.lastname@example.org. Here's a short video on Iraq casualties with soundtrack from Beethoven's incredible "Cavatina."
