The Department of Defense issues a press release on all U.S. service members who die in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan - providing their names, hometowns, military unit and brief details on the circumstances surrounding their deaths. But the Pentagon hardly says a word on the vastly larger number of wounded, offering only a weekly, detail-free summary.
