For those who have fallen

At a street corner near where I work is this very sobering reminder about those who have sacrificed for this war.

And here is a face to go with one of those numbers. Click on his picture to learn a little more about this very brave man.

I think at this very important religious time it is crucial to pause and reflect on those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for this country. No matter how I feel about this war; these brave men and women are heroes to me.

The Washington Post has a section called faces of the fallen.

From time to time I will be taking pictures of the signs and featuring one of these fine soldiers who are fighting and dying in Iraq.

The worst part is that the signs have easily-changed numbers: The toll rises too quickly to have signs painted.

What made you choose this soldier? Just wondering — Ed

There was no specific reason for the choice of this soldier. He was one of the most recent casualties on the Washington Post site.
