68 U.S. troops have died in Iraq since President Bush went on the longest presidential vacation in 36 years on August 2nd.

The AP reported on August 2nd that at least 1,806 members of the U.S. military had died since the beginning of the Iraq war in March 2003. As of this morning, at least 1,874 members of the U.S. military have died.

President Bush believes it’s time to “get on with his life,” but U.S. soldiers continue to make the ultimate sacrifice on a daily basis.
