This Week with George Stephanopoulos marks the passings of journalist Marie Colvin and photojournalist Rémi Ochlik. In addition, the Pentagon has released the names of three soldiers killed in Afghanistan:

US Army SGT Allen R McKenna Jr, 28, Noble, OK
US Army SGT Joshua A Born, 25, Niceville, FL
US Army CPL Timothy J Conrad Jr, 22, Roanoke, VA

In addition, we lost the following notable figures: publisher and free speech advocate Barney Rosset, theater producer and director Theodore Mann and jazz saxophonist Red Holloway.

According to iCasualties, the total number of allied servicemembers killed in Afghanistan is now 2,905.
