In Memoriam

From Nicole Belle at Crooks and Liars, the casualty reports from last week, in which we lost 11 service members in Afghanistan:

US Marines LtCol Mario D Carazo, 41, Springfield, OH
US Marines Maj James M Weis, 37, Toms River, NJ
US Army SSG Conrad A Mora, 24, San Diego, CA
US Army SGT Daniel Lim, 23, Cypress, CA
US Army SPC Joseph A Bauer, 27, Cincinnati, OH
US Army SPC Andrew L Hand, 26, Enterprise, AL
US Marines LCpl Frederik E Vazquez, 20, Melrose Park, IL
US Marines Abram L Howard, 21, Williamsport, PA
US Navy PO3 Jarod Newlove, 25, Renton, WA
US Army CPT Jason E Holbrook, 28, Burnet, TX
US Army SSG Kyle R Warren, 28, Manchester, NH

These are real people with real families, and whose loss will be felt forever.  May our leaders somehow see through all the fog and finally have the aha! moment when they realize that there is really no good reason for our continued combat presence in that country.

And as for these unlucky souls, may they rest in peace.
