There were no American military deaths in Afghanistan last month. It marks the first such month in more than seven years and just the third time since the war began more than 12 years ago. That's according to a CNN count of casualties. The previous months in which no U.S. deaths occurred during Operation Enduring Freedom were January 2007 and July 2002. In all, 2,309 U.S. military members have died in Afghanistan since hostilities began there on October 7, 2001. Three additional Department of Defense civilians have died. According to NATO's website, its primary goal is to help Afghan authorities provide effective security across the country and ensure terrorists cannot again use the country as a haven. Its mission is slated to end at the end of the year.
