For those who have died in past wars and particularly for the nearly 2,500 American soldiers who have died in Iraq.

Whatever one feels about war in general or the current war, those who are or have been there have gone through a long and difficult period of training, have undergone deep personal and family hardship, and have placed their lives and physical and mental health at risk for something beyond themselves and for very little in the way of material rewards.

This is more than can be said of many people, including most of those who “gave” us this war.
