Paying Respect

The Iraq Veterans Memorial is an online war memorial to honor the members of the U.S. armed forces who have lost their lives serving in the Iraq War. It is a collection of video memories from family, friends, military colleagues, and co-workers of those that have fallen. The memorial will be an online destination for people to honor and remember those we have lost.

We need your help to make this complete. If you knew a soldier who died, please contribute your own video memorial to them. There is no deadline.

*Adam asked my why I was watching this as it was visibly make me upset. At the time I didn't have an answer, I just shook my head and cried more. I thought to myself why do I do this? Then it occured to me, this is the one small thing that I can do to pay tribute, show my respect for these men and women and their families who've paid the ultimate sacrifice. To listen to the stories told of these men and women, I truly believe the world is a darker place with them gone*
