    From the Washington Post -

    KABUL -- Nine NATO troops were killed Monday in a helicopter crash and a spate of attacks in southern and eastern Afghanistan, putting June on pace to become the deadliest month for the U.S.-led international force in the nearly nine-year war.

    At least 62 NATO service members, including 41 Americans, have been killed this month in Afghanistan -- an average of nearly three per day. Also on Monday, Afghan officials said a deputy district governor was slain in Wardak Province, the latest blow for the U.S. effort to boost local governance in Taliban strongholds.

    The surge in NATO casualties comes as the U.S. military is deploying an additional 30,000 troops to Taliban strongholds in an effort to secure them enough for the Afghan government to assume control.

    "We're getting into places where we haven't been," Lt. Gen. David Rodriguez, the No. 2 U.S. commander in Afghanistan, said in an interview. The Taliban are "going to continue to fight back for those areas so they don't lose their influence or the significant amount of drug money and resources," he added.

    Monday's crash marked the deadliest incident for Australian troops since the war began. The country, which has roughly 1,500 troops in Afghanistan, has lost 16 service members, including two killed in a roadside bombing earlier this month. Seven Australian soldiers were wounded in Monday's crash, the officials said, some gravely.

    "The families of these soldiers can be extremely proud of their loved ones," Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, the head of Australia's Defense Force, said in a statement. "These three soldiers were very experienced. Time after time they have taken the fight to the enemy with courage and determination. I have nothing but admiration for these very brave and committed Australians. They were some of our finest."

    Also on Monday, the British government announced that 300 of its troops have been killed in Afghanistan, following the death Monday of a British marine injured Sunday in a roadside bombing in Helmand province. Prime Minister David Cameron called the death of the 300th British service member "desperately sad news," but said British soldiers will remain in Afghanistan because "the Afghans are not yet ready to keep their country safe."
    I will post the names once they are released.

    Marine Missing in Action From World War I Identified

    The Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office announced today that the remains of a U.S. serviceman, missing in action from World War I, have been identified and returned to his family for burial with full military honors.

    U.S. Marine First Sergeant George H. Humphrey of Utica, N.Y., will be buried on Wednesday at Arlington National Cemetery. On Sept. 15, 1918, Humphrey participated in the first U.S.-led offensive of the war under the command of Gen. John J. Pershing. The battle with the Germans became known as the St. Mihiel Offensive. There were 7,000 Allied losses during this offensive and it was the first use of the American use of the term “D-Day” and the first use of tanks by American units.

    Humphrey, a member of the U.S. 6th Marine Regiment, attached to the Army’s 2nd Infantry Division, was killed in action during the battle and his remains were buried by fellow Marines the next day. In October 1919, a Marine who witnessed the death wrote a letter to Humphrey’s brother recounting the attack near the village of Rembercourt. He included a map of his recollection of the burial site.

    Attempts to locate Humphrey’s remains by U.S. Army Graves Registration personnel following the war were unsuccessful. In September 2009, French nationals hunting for war relics found artifacts near Rembercourt-sur-Mad they believed to be those of a World War I American soldier. A month later, a team from the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command excavated the area, recovering human remains and military-related items including a marksman’s badge with Humphrey’s name engraved on the back.

    Among other forensic identification tools and circumstantial evidence, scientists from JPAC laboratory also used dental comparisons in the identification of the remains.

    It is with regret that the Ministry of Defence must confirm that Marine Paul Warren from Charlie Company, 40 Commando Royal Marines, was killed in Afghanistan on Monday 21 June 2010.

    Marine Warren was injured in an explosion when Patrol Base Airport Lounge was attacked by insurgents. Despite being given immediate first aid by his comrades, Marine Warren's injuries proved to be fatal.

    Marine Paul Warren was born in Preston and lived with his family in Leyland, Lancashire. He was 23 years old.
