About the casualty rate in Iraq, I did not write it, I used it as a source in a paper I had to write. I was an 88m that served in 2004 and 2007.
It breaks down hostile casualty rates in Afghanistan and Iraq, it covers Combat Arms, Combat Support and Combat Service Support.
On page 33 it breaks it down between both Iraq war and Afghanistan war between the years 2003-2011
The total number of WIA/KIA between both war in this time period 35,698
Iraq war 24833 WIA/KIA from 2003-2011= 70% of the casualties.
Afghan War 10,858 WIA/KIA from 2003-2011 with majority happening from 2010-2011= 30% of casualties.
Combat Arms 20152 KIA/WIA = a whopping 56% of the casualties. obvious.
Combat Support 3474= 10% of the casualties(MP's basically infantry my ass)! Also only a handful were MP's because there are lot of MOS's within combat support that are put in highly dangerous situations, this includes EOD, Combat AIr Traffic Controller, I believe is the name I may be wrong, but I am close.
Combat Service Support 6007 WIA/KIA= 17% of casualties and majority were 88m or Motor T because that is the only MOS that really leaves in that category.
Again I am off of the weed right now and have nothing else to do, and I have been on mission for years to prove the combat that 88m go through. Here is link to essay.
The chart is on page 33. It is a pretty good read if you have the time.
