70% of U.S. Military Fatalities in 11-Year Afghan War Have Occurred on Obama's Watch’s detailed database of U.S. military fatalities in Afghanistan is derived from official Department of Defense (DOD) casualty reports enhanced by information taken from the U.S.-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and media accounts.

The count of U.S. military fatalities in the Afghan War includes all U.S. military personnel who died or were fatally injured in Afghanistan itself, plus four who died on ships at sea supporting operations in Afghanistan, plus 12 who died in Pakistan.  It does not count military personnel who have died while participating in Operation Enduring Freedom in other regions of the world, where they were not supporting military operations in Afghanistan.
