Body count 1.5.05 

To honor the war dead and fill an information gap in US mass media, City Newspaper will run weekly lists of American soldiers and Iraqi civilians killed during the occupation of Iraq.

The totals:

1,333 American soldiers, 151 Coalition soldiers, and approximately 15,038 to 17,240 Iraqi civilians have been killed in Iraq (a recent survey published by Lancet medical journal estimates as many as 100,000 Iraqi civilians killed), and 5,301 American soldiers have been seriously wounded, from the beginning of the war and occupation to January 4.

An Army study found about one in six soldiers in Iraq report symptoms of depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder; some experts predict that over 100,000 soldiers may eventually require mental health treatment.

American soldiers killed from December 28-Jan 4:

Staff Sergeant Todd D. Olson, 36; Loyal, Wisconsin | Staff Sergeant Jason A. Lehto, 31; Mount Clemens, Michigan | Specialist Jose A. Rivera-Serrano, 26; Mayaguez, Puerto Rico | Seaman Pablito Pena Briones, Jr., 22; Anaheim, California | Staff Sergeant Nathaniel J. Nyren, 31; Reston, Virginia | Private First Class Oscar Sanchez, 19; Modesto, California | Sergeant Damien T. Ficek, 26; Pullman, Washington | Specialist Jeff Lebrun, 21; Buffalo, New York | Sergeant First Class Pedro A. Munoz, 37; Aquada, Puerto Rico | Specialist Craig L. Nelson, 21; Bossier City, Louisiana | Lance Corporal Brian P. Parrello, 19; West Milford, New Jersey | Lance Corporal Jason E. Smith, 21; Phoenix, Arizona.
