US wounded in Falluja hits 412
US wounded in Falluja hits 412

Saturday 13 November 2004,

A C-141 transport plane brought the 73 newest patients to the US Air Force's Ramstein base on Saturday morning.

The 73 new patients at the US military's Landstuhl Regional Medical Centre pushed the number of arrivals this week to 412, nearly all of whom were injured in Falluja, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

Military officials could not provide an exact breakdown on the number of wounded from Falluja or the nature of their injuries.

Bed capacity at the hospital in rural western Germany has been increased to handle the influx.

1. It doesn't matter if they are dead or wounded - they still can't fight
So thats 412 soldiers, 2 helicopters, a dozen or so vehicles. That's pretty costly for something we are only going to hold for two weeks.
