About 4,802 coalition forces died in the war in Iraq.

In Afghanistan, that number is 3,477, with about 10,000 troops still in the region on training assignments.

An interactive map made by CNN allows user to see where those soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen came from and where they died.

FOX 13 used the map to remember 19-year-old Jordan Byrd, an Army Medic, and 21-year-old Adam Galvez, a Marine corporal.
