U.S. Death Toll in Iraq

I think about this when I have students in the Armed Forces in class. Marines in my class have a 4.0 average (they actually do what I tell them in rewrites!)

During Vietnam, there was a saying "D=Death," meaning that unless soldiers kept a 3.0 GPA, they could be sent to less desirably locations. Makes it hard to stay totally objective in grading.
