This Week with George Stephanopoulos marks the passings of Roy E. Disney, Iranian Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, evangelist Oral Roberts and actress/art patron Jennifer Jones. In addition, the Pentagon released the names of three servicemembers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Army PFC Jaiciae L Pauley, 29, of Austell, GA

Army PVT Jhanner A Tello, 29, of Los Angeles, CA

Air Force TSgt Anthony C Campbell Jr, 35, of Florence, KY

According to iCasualties, the total number of allied servicemembers killed in Iraq is 4,689; in Afghanistan, 1,545. Iraq Body Count lists 168 Iraqi civilians killed during this same period, including 127 killed by car bombs in Baghdad in a single day. And as long as we're listing war casualties, Yemen rebels say that US air raids are responsible for 120 killed in their country, apparently in an effort to target Al Qaeda.
