US Hostile Fire Casualties in Iraq at 8 for September.
With September coming to a close in Iraq, the number of total US Casualties reached a 5 year monthly low, and the number of hostile casualties dipped back to match the record low from August.
Total US casualties were at 25 with 8 coming from hostile fire and 17 from non-hostile activities (mostly a helicopter wreck).
Chicago numbers are still building, with 35 homicides counted up to September 21. George A. Cardenas Ward 12 has had a rash of crimes this month, currently leading in number of homicides, by my count.
