I constantly find myself hoping that the media will give more attention to the men and women serving our country in the Middle East, but I am largely disappointed.
Just as U.S. Troops in Iraq were 'withdrawing' from the cities and Iraqis were dancing in the streets celebrating their 'victory', four U.S. soldiers were killed in combat in Baghdad.
According to iCasulaties.org, this brings the number of fallen heroes in OIF and OEF to 5,036.
Shouldn't this number along with the names of warrior who has sacrificed their live in the name of country be broadcast, printed, and remembered? Why doesn't our Congress take time each day to read the names, observed a moment of silence, and pray for the families of the fallen?
Join me in demanding that our media and elected leaders give these heroes the recognition they deserve and give the the American people more information about the true cost of war.
