Faces for the so called “Casualties”

There are several meanings for the same word. I guess that lately the word is used to describe faces, people, sons, fathers…

#1 (n.) That which comes without design or without being foreseen; contingency.
#2 (n.) Any injury of the body from accident; hence, death, or other misfortune, occasioned by an accident; as, an unhappy casualty.
#3 (n.) Numerical loss caused by death, wounds, discharge, or desertion.

Anyway…. To put some faces on the word, here goes a link. 3000 faces of casualties…

Here you can only count the American loss… I guess Iraqi civilians wouldn’t fit the square…
