The Associated Press has been keeping very close tabs on the fallen servicemen and women in Iraq and today released a multimedia index of all 4,000 casualties, in chronological order. It shows day by day how many soldiers were killed via a bar graph, one block for each soldier.
The project is available through the AP’s hosted service, which appears on member newspapers’ Web sites. You can see the AP index on The Saratogian’s Web site, under 4,000 Fallen: Iraq Casualties Since March 2003
