The totals:

844 American soldiers and 117 "Coalition" soldiers have been killed in Iraq since the beginning of the occupation to June 21. At least 100 contractors have been killed or are currently missing in Iraq. More than 5,138 American soldiers have been wounded in action since the war began.

Private First Class Sean Horn; 19; Orange, California | Specialist Jeremy M. Dimaranan; 29; Virginia Beach, Virginia | Sergeant Arthur S. Mastrapa; 35; Apopka, Florida | Major Paul R.
