As of Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014, at least 2,164 members of the U.S. military had died in Afghanistan as a result of the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan in late 2001, according to an Associated Press count.
 
    The AP count is one fewer than the Defense Department’s tally, last updated Tuesday at 10 a.m. EST.
 
    At least 1,789 military service members have died in Afghanistan as a result of hostile action, according to the military’s numbers.
 
    Outside of Afghanistan, the department reports at least 134 more members of the U.S. military died in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Of those, 11 were the result of hostile action.
 
    The AP count of total OEF casualties outside of Afghanistan is one more than the department’s tally.
 
    The Defense Department also counts three military civilian deaths.
 
    Since the start of U.S. military operations in Afghanistan, 19,572 U.S. service members have been wounded in hostile action, according to the Defense Department.
