Pentagon says March fatality free for U.S. Forces in Afghanistan

For the first time in nearly a decade, the United States Army has announced a full calendar month without any fatalities in Afghanistan.

The report comes from the Pentagon stating no soldiers died in the month of March, 2014.

March was reportedly the 3rd month since September 2001 in which no American Military members died while serving in Afghanistan.

The report comes just after over 400 soldiers from Fort Wainwright's 1–52 Aviation Regiment deployed for 9–months.

They will have been joined by nearly 12 hundred other soldiers as part of the 16th Combat Aviation Brigade from Joint Base Lewis Mcchord in Washington.

As of Monday, 2,309 American troops have died serving in Afghanistan and nearly 20,000 wounded in what is now the Nation's longest war.
