One Military Community’s Ultimate War Sacrifice

(Cross posted at Out Of Iraq Bloggers Caucus.) 

This is the front page of today’s The Olympian, a local paper for those who reside in the Olympia, Washington area.  Every person pictured on the front page was living, likely building a family, and building a career of service in the military as a part of the local community surrounding Ft. Lewis, Washington:

They all gave their lives in an unjust, immoral war that they had no say in, and deserve our thanks, honor and respect, and should live on in our memories as part of the price we are paying to service the greed and power of the Bushliburton administration and their corporate sponsors.

Read brief biographies of these patriots in this story in The Olympian.

Download your very own copy of The Olympian front page for October 10, 2007.  The download is a .PDF file and it will give you a large, clear picture of the front page.  Use the .PDF as “wall paper” for your computer, pass a copy along to family and friends; pass a copy along to your representatives in Congress.

These are the faces from just one local community who paid the ulitimate price, when you think about them, think also of the thousands of other sons and daughters who have also been sacrificed in the name of our country, and think about what you can do to stop the carnage.

One Response to One Military Community’s Ultimate War Sacrifice

    I am out of town at present but I just had to comment on this heartrending post. So sad. So useless. These men did not die in vain, however, because I have to believe that they thought they went over to fight for a just cause.

    It’s this corrupt government that failed them.
