Not sure you can have a casuauty rate of 314 %


Since "casualty" usually refers to dead AND wounded, those who are repeatedly wounded and repeatedly return to action can take the percentage over 100. So 314% represents a remarkable amount of dedication and suffering.

Thanks, Jeff; that's exactly correct. The confusion and incredible, unbelievable nature of that number is really I guess the largest part of the story on the 442. *That's* the point.
