8. icas lists 2036 fatalities "in and around Afghanistan"

That includes Pakistan and Uzbekistan. Deaths from wounds are counted, even when they occur in Germany or the U.S.


Note that any death in-country counts, including those from heart attack, suicide, illness, etc., and these are distinguisheded as non-combat related. (And I recall at least one suicide in the U.S. that was counted as an Iraq war death because an invesigation found it to be directly attributable--the troop was suicidal in-country and was medevac'd.)
