U.S. Military Deaths Since 2001


This Memorial Day, we wanted to honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice. To do that, we created this visualization. It pays tribute to the 7,064 members of the U.S. military that have died in U.S. military operations since October 7th, 2001. During this time, there were wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and conflicts throughout the Middle East.

In the past, we have looked at all U.S. military deaths from wars, but today, wanted to focus on recent confilicts. We are greatful to all that have served.

The data for this visualization was gathered from the Department of Defense’s website. It was then visualized in Tableau.
