Fallen US Soldiers Serving in Iraq and Afghanistan -- Master Index

This was a sobering project--far too many names...

It was difficult to scroll through this sad roll.

No matter how one feels about the war itself, one should always respect the young men and women who have been sent to fight for our country, especially those on this list and those others who have been injured, both physically and psychologically.

Each name here represents a once-living young man or woman who sacrificed his/her life for our country.

Each name is more than just a name or abstract symbol. Each name represents a person who was important to his/her family, friends, and community.

Each name is deeply mourned by the soldier's loved ones, not just a link in a column of black letters.

Just one name is one name too many.

Remember the following young men and women who gave their lives for our country.
