Over 1,500 American Soldiers Wounded Since March

6,000 American servicemen have been evacuated from Iraq due to medical reasons. Furthermore, London's Observer newspaper has obtained figures that over 1,500 of these soldiers have been wounded, many seriously, since U.S. military involvement in Iraq began in March.
