abc-tw-memoriam.jpg ABC's This Week runs a segment every Sunday called In Memoriam, paying tribute to people of note who have passed away and at the end they show the names of U.S. soldiers and marines killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. This week the Pentagon released 21 names. Americablog has been posting these segments for some time now, I thought it was time we did as well.

Every week I watch this segment with immense sorrow and anger, sometimes bordering on rage. It makes it worse to know that the Democrats have stood by and allowed the bloodbath to continue, giving King George every penny he wants...and more. Seeing all those names brings it all home. Kudos to This Week for continuing to put a human face on this tragedy...
