Last US troops leave Iraq as war ends
Khabari Crossing, Kuwait

Sun Dec 18, 7:35 a.m. AST: The U.S. military says the last American troops have left Iraq as the nearly nine-year war ends.

The final convoy rolled across the border into neighboring Kuwait as day broke on Sunday. Soldiers whooped, bumped fists and embraced each other in a burst of joy and relief.

The mission cost nearly 4,500 American lives and well more than 100,000 Iraqi lives and $800 billion from the U.S. Treasury.
