This Week: In Memoriam

icon Download icon Download (Thanks to Bill & Heather)

This Week offers their acknowledgement of this week's passings, including 13 troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Diane over at GreatScat! noticed a discrepancy between the casualties listed in news reports and what the DOD lists as confirmed deaths. So with that caveat, I will note that only one of the 13 fallen service members that the DOD confirmed had lived to see their 30th birthday.
