Explaining "Casualties"....

For folks who seem to think the definition of "casualties" doesn't include "deaths" I paste the following from

[kazh-oo-uh l-tee] Show IPA
noun, plural cas·u·al·ties.

1. Military .
~  a. a member of the armed forces lost to service through death, wounds, sickness, capture, or because his or her whereabouts or condition cannot be determined.
~  b.casualties, loss in numerical strength through any cause, as death, wounds, sickness, capture, or desertion.

World English Dictionary
