To be a contractor in Iraq

I've always said that if I wasn't married I would seriously consider going to Iraq as a contractor. The hazard pay is ridiculous. And while I've always known that they get hazard pay for a reason, I didn't know it was quite this bad. 1,001 contractors have died in Iraq in the past 4 years. That is a large number. Makes you think twice about it, no?
