The death toll for U.S. soldiers for the month of May = 124. The thrid worst month since March 2003 invasion; exceptions of April 2004 with 135 dead and November 2004 with 137 dead.
This is also the first time there have been back to back monthly death tolls above 100, and this has easily been the most deadly six month period of the war. The chart shows the increasing toll on our troops.
