This Week with George Stephanopoulos notes the passings of three soldiers killed in Afghanistan:

US Army SSG Jesse J Grindey, 30, Hazel Green, WI
US Army SPC Daquane D Rivers, 21, Marianna, FL
US Army 2LT Clovis T Ray, 34, San Antonio, TX

According to iCasualties, 2,930 allied service people have been killed in Afghanistan.

In addition, the following notable names passed this week: Doobie Bros. drummer Michael Hossack, union and women's rights activist Madeleine Parent, Princess Anna of Saxony, WWII pilot Joe Stanley, and Pope Shenouda III of Alexandria.

During the last week, Iraq Body Count lists 57 Iraqi civilians killed. Although we don't have contemporaneous information for Afghanistan, the latest counts list 3,021 Afghan civilian deaths for 2011 and 12,793 since 2006. Not surprisingly, Afghan President Hamid Karzai declared that he was "at the end of his rope" over the killing of civilians on Friday.
