Ad Feedback

The month of August is on track to be the deadliest month for the U.S. military in Afghanistan.

On Wednesday, a U.S. service member was killed in an attack involving a roadside bomb and gunfire.
     
That death brings to 44 the number of U.S. troops who have died in Afghanistan this month -- tying August with July for the deadliest month of the eight-year war.
    
More than 60,000 U.S. troops are now in the country to combat rising insurgent violence.
    
The current timeline calls for U.S. troops to withdraw by August 2010.
