Afghanistan war has claimed 2,000 U.S. military
It took nine years for the U.S. to reach 1,000 dead, but only 27 months to reach the next 1,000, according to The Times.
The analysis includes deaths in Afghanistan, Pakistan and, as The Times puts it, “other nations where American forces are directly involved in aiding the war.”
U.S. Army Specialist James A. Justice of Grover, N.C., was the 2,000th death, The Times reported.
