One thing the election didn't change.

BAGHDAD (CNN) -- Three U.S. soldiers and two Marines died in Iraq in the past two days, the U.S. military announced Friday.

One Marine died Thursday from wounds sustained due to "enemy action" during operations in Anbar province, the military said. The Marine was assigned to Regimental Combat Team 5. A second Marine assigned to Regimental Combat Team 7 died Friday from "non-hostile causes" while operating in Anbar province, the military said.

Two soldiers were killed and a third was wounded Thursday when their vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb west of Baghdad, the military said Friday. All were assigned to 89th Military Police Brigade.

Also Thursday, one soldier assigned to the 13th Sustainment Command was killed and another was wounded during a patrol when their truck was hit by a roadside bomb west of Haditha, the military said.

With the deaths, 2,844 U.S. military personnel have died in the Iraq war. Twenty-six military personnel have died in November as of Friday's announcements, bringing total U.S. military deaths in Iraq during 2006 to 664. (Posted 1:58 p.m.)
