"August has been the deadliest month for U.S. forces in Afghanistan since the conflict began nearly 10 years ago. Sixty-six American troops have died this month, topping July 2010 when 65 troops died, according to a CNN tally. Almost half the August troop deaths took place on August 6 when insurgents shot down their helicopter in the eastern central province of Wardak." (08/30/11)
