there are very few photos to be found anymore....as OUR soldiers are KILLED every day, but NO photos of the caskets arriving, NO greeting by bush*, NO photos of the funerals, only a few of the actual KILLED soldiers...the whole carnage has been pushed to the back pages, if mentioned at all....so here's a DU memorial for all OUR KILLED soldiers, with the few photos that can be found....please post other DU memorial PHOTOS on this thread, if you find some....and keep it kicked up, if you care.....




This undated photo provided by Iowa National Guard shows Iowa National Guard 2nd Lt. Richard B. Gienau, 29, of Peoria, Ill., who was killed Sunday, Feb. 27, 2005, in Iraq.

Louisiana National Guard Staff Sgt. Nicholas J. Olivier is shown in an undated photo. Olivier, 26, was with the Charlie Company, 3rd Battalion of 256th Brigade Combat Team. He was killed Wednesday, Feb. 23, 2005, when a homemade bomb exploded while he was on ground patrol in Baghdad. (AP Photo)



The U.S. military death toll is nearing 1,500 in the 23-month Iraq war, with casualties easing in the weeks since the historic January 30, 2005 elections but with little evidence the insurgency has been crippled. The Pentagon tally of fatalities in Iraq released on February 25 listed 1,480 U.S. deaths, including 1,130 killed in combat and 350 in nonhostile incidents such as vehicle and aircraft crashes.

Fonseca was killed in Mosul as he inspected a vehicle wired with explosives. Photo by Stringer/Mexico/Reuters
