Memorial-Day

The following is a list of soldiers who have been killed in Afghanistan this year. I do not know any of them, but I thought I’d honor them in my own small way today.  If interested, you can find the complete list of all the soldiers who have died since the war began here at Citizen Journalist. The Washington Post has done a wonderful piece featuring those who have died during both Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Called Faces of the Fallen, it can be found here.
