As of Thursday, at least 806 members of the U.S. military had died in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Uzbekistan as a result of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in late 2001, according to the Defense Department.
u.s. soldier(s) died in uzbekistan? when did that happen?

UPDATE: never mind, i found the soldier. it was a "non-combat weapons discharge" in november 2001. i guess it happened early enough in the operation that casualties ever since then have been listed as being from "afghanistan, pakistan and uzbekistan" even though there really hasn't been any casualties in uzbekistan since that date.
