Another One

Slides under the flag bringing the official Iraq war death total to 1503.

It would be 1513 if these guys counted
. This guy won't count either:

AUGUSTA (March 3, 2005): Gov. John E. Baldacci confirmed Thursday afternoon that Michael D. Jones, of Unity, a member of the 133rd Engineer Battalion of the Maine Army National Guard, died today in New York.

The Joint Force Headquarters was notified by Fort Drum Casualty Assistance Office that Jones passed away this morning.

Jones served in A Company 133rd Engineer Battalion that arrived last week in Fort Drum, N.Y., after serving a year in Iraq. Shortly after the flight overseas, Jones became seriously ill. He was rushed to State University of New York (SUNY) Hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery. Jones' condition reportedly grew continually worse until he died this morning.
