Lee, 25, of Bluffton, Georgia, an 82nd Airborne Division Paratrooper who was killed April 29, 2017 in Iraq when an improvised explosive device detonated during a patrol outside Mosul. US casualties in Iraq dropped to near zero after most American troops were withdrawn in 2011, but rose again to 17 last year, and seven so far this year with the latest death, according to the iCasualties.org website, which tracks coalition deaths and injuries. US forces have taken part, mostly in an advisory capacity, since last October in a hard-fought, multinational effort to wrest control of Mosul from the Islamic State group. / AFP PHOTO / AFP PHOTO AND US ARMY / US Army / XGTY == RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE / MANDATORY CREDIT: "AFP PHOTO / US ARMY" / NO MARKETING / NO ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS / DISTRIBUTED AS A SERVICE TO CLIENTS == (Photo credit should read US ARMY/AFP/Getty Images)
